Our Focus

The Nature College specialises in natural history and cultural ecology based experiences in the fascinating western sub-region of southern Africa. We have selected this region for our scientific nature tours primarily for the following reasons:

  • It is a safe destination – free of diseases such as malaria, and the area has a very low crime rate.
  • It is a region consisting of fascinating diverse ecosystems, ranging from the fynbos of the Cape, to the desert of the Namib.
  • It is rich in cultural history of the Bushman, Nama and pioneer Afrikaner communities.

We combine this focus with our skills in the grassveld and savanna regions to produce fascinatingly diverse study experiences.
