I had a great stay. I learned a lot of new things I didn't expect to learn. I have gained very useful knowledge that I can use in the future.

What is Edutourism?



Edutourism is the act of being a tourist and engaging in an educational activity or program while travelling abroad. The purpose is to learn something new such as a skill or activity found locally in your destination instead of walking or driving around completely oblivious to the nature and culture that surrounds you. Edutourism programs can last anywhere between one to four weeks and typically consist of a crash course that covers in-depth knowledge, and hands on learning about the nature and culture of the area where you are visiting.


What edutourism does Chrysalis offer?


We offer bespoke Conservation and Nature Education field trips for local and international schools and universities. We have various nature and conservation activities that include a short theory component, followed up with a large portion of time doing practical activities in the field. We work very closely with our clients to create a customised program to meet the needs of each group. Field trips typically take place in bush locations, some of which have the Big 5.

Activities can include but are not limited to:

  • Bush walks combined with focusing on tracks and sings in the bush
  • Field identification activities—an introduction to using a field guide to identify animals and plants
  • Conservation workshops—highlighting conservation issues in the area that we are staying
  • Field Research and monitoring activities– learning how to conduct a basic survey, and how animals are tracked and monitored using telemetry equipment and camera traps
  • Traditional uses of plants and animals
  • An overnight stay in a traditional village
  • Sleep out in the open bush
  • Learning the skills of camping in comfort
