The Guardian newspaper in the U.K. recently ran a story on “20 of the Best Group Trips for Solo Travelers” — a list that includes including the EcoTraining Guides & Guardians experiences in southern Africa.
Quotable quote: “The Wilderness Trails Skills course for adventurous travellers is great value, offering a stripped-back safari at a fraction of the usual cost. The setting is the Makuleke Concession, a remote part of the Kruger national park in South Africa, or the Mashatu game reserve in Botswana; sightings may include lions, leopards, elephants and rhinos. Guests walk up to 10km a day, carrying their own supplies, and learn to track animals, navigate, set up camp, make fires and leave no trace. Nights are spent wild camping under the stars.”
