Take education out of the classroom by experiencing the African bush with us through our Environmental Education & Awareness Programs in KwaZulu Natal – South Africa.
Aimed at youth groups of all ages we offer fun, exciting and educational trips looking at the various aspects of conservation directly here in the field. Basic bush craft, reserve management, wildlife rehabilitation and community sports projects are amongst the many areas we cover.
Albizia Environmental Camp is a tented accommodation set on an 800 Hectare Wildlife Conservancy known as ‘Ukuwela’ which is home to various game species such as giraffe, Zebra and wildebeest. This ecosystem provides guides with the ideal platform to teach about all the facets of wildlife, conservation and the surrounding Zulu community.
