The Story

This experience is operated by our education and travel partner EcoTraining. EcoTraining was established in 1993 and is the premier safari guide and trail guiding organisation in Africa.

EcoTraining’s mission is to educate people on the importance of the wilderness and especially the processes that drive the natural ecosystems of the world. With new understanding, the hope is that participants on an EcoTraining experience will go out into the world with the visions to make a difference to the way we look after our planet in their day-to-day lives.


Our tented camps are located in wildlife conservancies and we aim to minimise our impact on the environment. All accommodation is in two person tents including bedding. Our camps are unfenced meaning that we often have many different wild animals visiting our camps during the day and night. All meals are included in any stay including early morning breakfast, brunch, afternoon meal and dinner. Alcohol purchases are additional.

Specific details on what to bring to your experience will be provided.  We aim to ensure that you walk away from your experience keen to return again shortly.
