The region offers unique fauna and flora, all the Big Game of Africa with 42 mammal varieties and approximately 350 bird varieties.

At most education institutions, the campus is merely a backdrop to the program. Our campus is an integral and deeply rewarding part of the Eco Ranger Academy experience.

Eco Ranger Academy's Campus offers students a unique and vast ‘classroom’. 

Whilst the main Campus is located at Klaserie, practical training is conducted over the entire Kruger to Canyon Lowveld and Eastern Escarpment.

The Main Campus of the college is a place of intellectual stimulation and discovery, where ideas foster change and awareness will inspire commitment and success.

The student village is in harmony with the environment and aligned with eco-friendly building principles.
