Operating for 24 years, EcoTraining is the pioneer and leader in safari guide and wildlife training in Africa. EcoTraining is widely recognised by the safari industry for its credibility and standard of excellence in nature guide training. We offer accredited career courses, gap year and sabbatical programmes, nature programmes, high school and university study abroad programmes, custom courses and on-site professional guide training at safari lodges. All courses are run directly from EcoTraining’s unfenced bush camps in prime wilderness areas across South Africa, Botswana, Kenya and Zimbabwe. To date EcoTraining has trained over 11 000 people from 33 different countries around the world.

What we offer is highly exclusive and only limited to 20 people per venue. It is a naturalist experience with big game roaming among our students in our unfenced camps. We have had many people attend our wilderness courses to either learn more about ecology or to detox from the fast paced city lifestyles as a retreat and to even learn more about conservation efforts. We maintain our exclusivity by keeping our numbers small to ensure the best wilderness experience.
