EcoTraining Guides & Guardians
Based in South Africa, EcoTraining offers accredited career courses, gap year opportunities, inspirational wildlife courses and high school programs with the ultimate goal of creating highly skilled guides and guardians of the natural world.
The company traces its roots to 1993 when a small group of guides from Londolozi and Sabi Sands came up with the visionary concept. Since then, EcoTraining has coached more than 10,000 people and many of its graduates now work for more than 150 safari lodges and operators around Africa.
Courses are taught 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. EcoTraining hopes that all participants, armed with this knowledge, make a difference to the way we look after our planet.
