WHY WE LOVE THIS
A life changing, real and raw experience that allows you to understand and connect with the wonderful and beautiful African bush. This is true bush living in Africa.
The EcoQuest Wilderness Experience 14 days provides you with the opportunity to experience two different game reserve locations across two weeks. Perfect for individuals wanting to truly immerse themselves in nature and the African bush. Every day is spent exploring the African wilderness either on foot with our experienced guides or on our safari trucks. During your EcoQuest experience, you will learn about the infinite variety of living organisms, understand the local species and see the charismatic wild animals that roam freely in their natural environment. The EcoQuest experience is an in-depth bush experience for nature lovers. The EcoQuest experience covers ecology, common trees and shrubs, animal tracks and tracking, bird identification and behaviour, animals and animal behaviours, astronomy orientation and navigation bush skills. Our highly qualified guides are more than happy to accommodate your specific requests to enhance your experience. Whilst animal experiences are never guaranteed, we have regular visitors to our camps every night from elephants to leopards and many, many different species. This will be an experience you will never forget and one that will have you yearning to return to Africa.
This experience operates in conjunction with our partner organisation, EcoTraining, in their wilderness camps in Southern Africa.
EcoTraining was started in 1993, when a few forward-thinking young guides from several safari lodges realised the need for a formal nature programme. The EcoTraining mission is to educate people on the importance of the wilderness and especially the processes that drive the natural ecosystems of the world. The hope is that participants, armed with this knowledge go out and make a difference to the way they look after the planet in their day-to-day lives.
EcoTraining has four permanent camps – three in South Africa and one in Botswana, collectively accommodating a maximum of 80 people at any one time – as well as temporary camps in Kenya and Zimbabwe. EcoTraining has hosted more than 10 000 people, young and old, from all over the world and from many walks of life. Our experiences are run in simple unfenced bush camps in the middle of great wilderness areas, where participants get to truly experience what it is like to live in wild places.
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 EcoQuest experience will be provided. We aim to ensure that you walk away from your EcoQuest experience eager to return again soon.
