“Once in a lifetime trip”

As you all might know by now, FGASA (Field Guides Association of Southern Africa) have changed their required number of days allocated to a level one qualification to 60 days from next year. The EcoTraining 28 day FGASA qualification will be your last chance to do a 28 day course with the FGASA exam. We decided to make this a “once in a lifetime” opportunity.

 Participants will be trained in 3 different reserves as part of the 28 day program; the training will include reserves in South Africa and Mashatu Game reserve in Botswana. The staring date for this specialist 28 day FGASA course is November the 25th 2011. (Remember you don’t have to do this as a career, you can also do it as part of the adventure of a lifetime)

We started in 1993 with a mission to raise the standard of guiding in Africa.
EcoTraining is the oldest field guide training company in Africa. We
were one of the first companies to conduct formal training programmes for
nature guides. We are known in the industry as the pioneers and leaders in
field guide and nature training.

For more than a decade, we have been sending people of all ages into the African wilderness to learn about the environment in exciting, in-depth and sensitive ways and to find out what it really takes to become a game ranger or a field guide

Don’t miss the last opportunity to get both your EcoTraining as well as your FGASA qualification while exploring reserves in South Africa and Botswana. For more information contact or phone +27 (0) 13 752 5248. Space is limited on this course, visit for more information on the 28 day course.

Hello everyone!


Zipping Zebra is backed by a well established tour operator in the wonderful seaside village of Hout Bay, Cape Town. We draw on their extensive network and very competitive rates – making sure you get to see and experience the best southern Africa has to offer! We focus on providing great service with individual attention to detail. Do you want child-friendly accommodation for your children, romantic suites for you and your significant other or your own private villa perhaps? The wishes of every traveler are unique, pretty much like the stripes on a zebra’s back. That’s why we believe there is only one proper way to explore the region: yours!

SA tourism in conjunction with EcoTraining just finished a media tour with 8 international journalists focusing on sustainable tourism and as part of “The green product” tour. The journalists represented 6 countries and experienced the EcoTraining Makuleke camp in the private Makuleke concession in the Kruger National park.  We will do this tour again next year – For more information please contact Corne at

Hi Nayaz,

There aren't any flights between Nelspruit and Hluhluwe. Your best bet will be to fly from Nelspruit to Durban and then travel by road to Hluhluwe. Driving time is about 3 and half hours.
