Look who visited us in camp!

Since we are celebrating World Elephant day today, we want to share our fondest and most intimate memories of elephants visiting our camps.

EcoTraining’s camps are located on four different big game wildlife reserves in southern Africa. We have the privilege to host students from all over the world but the visits are not restricted to human beings only. On regular occasions, we get to welcome a number of animal species at our camps, one of which is the majestic elephant.

In this photo blog, you will see a collection of photos taken by instructors and students of their interaction with these gentle giant beasts in our camps.

The elephant’s visits to camps are peaceful and calm. They do sometimes cause a little bit of damage to the surrounding trees and water pumps, but it is nothing our capable instructors cannot handle.
