The detail

“Gain a greater understanding of nature and wildlife, and experience life in the Southern African bush."

There is no better way to experience the stunning African wilderness than to embark on a quest to learn about its fascinating ecosystems and wildlife in some of Southern Africa’s most diverse game reserves. Perfect for adventurous spirits thirsty for knowledge or students considering a career in the field, the EcoQuest course is a unique learning experience with the African bush as your classroom. You’ll learn how to identify birds, plants, and trees as well as how to track animals and drive a 4x4. You’ll also pick up some useful bush surviving skills and learn about animal behaviour and astronomy. Last but not least, you’ll get to explore the area by taking part in daily wilderness walks or game drives for some unforgettable encounters!

In many parts of Africa, the ancient skills of wild animal tracking are being lost at an alarming rate. With the rapid development of technologies and urbanisation, much of humanity’s connection with the natural world is being eroded – and it is this process that EcoTraining is aiming to reverse, by providing programs like this to encourage a greater respect and appreciation for the natural world. By passing on indigenous wilderness skills through providing training, EcoTraining helps to preserve and protect ancient traditions and skills, while also conserving some of Earth’s last surviving wild places and the species that live there.
