why travel with us?
Traveling with Wild Ecotours is different
Our tour groups are small, and we pride ourselves in having a casual atmosphere. While some places we stay have specific mealtimes, other venues are small camps where we are the only guests. Our accommodations often include local handmade furnishings that reflect the nearby cultures. It’s typical to relax around a campfire in the evening, getting to know your fellow travelers and sharing stories about the great places you have visited.
We do provide some high value items that you don’t find on other trips. A private ranger and expert wildlife guide accompany us during our game drives, a private chef prepares our meals, and we arrange meetings with conservationists on the front lines. Unlike other bush experiences, our trackers are constantly scanning the ground for prints, which we follow to many surprising sightings.
Our intimate conservation minded Eco-adventures are truly unique experiences that create memories for a lifetime.
This is the homey atmosphere of South Africa we love, and we delight in sharing it with each of our tour participants.
We limit the size of our tours to 8-12 people.
Local trackers and rangers accompany our game drives.
With Wild Ecotours, you’ll meet conservationists on the front lines working to prevent extinction.
