An educational adventure for the Ecowise
what is ecowise?
ECOWISE is a concept that has been developed by the Ivy family who have been involved in conservation for many years.
The word ECOWISE is derived from "Ecological Wisdom"which is what we hope to instill in each person who comes to enjoy the "ECOWISE" experience with us.
The ECOWISE adventure has been specifically designed by the Ivys using the advice of teachers and university lecturers, and can be enjoyed by people of all age groups.
It is a comprehensive study of the Southern African environment, emphasising the sustainable utilisation of natural resources thus resulting in a well-conserved ecosystem. ECOWISE concepts are easily adapted to all environmental types, therefore ECOWISE will be relevant anywhere in the world.
A book entitled “Ecowise - a holistic guide to the South African bushveld” written by your IVY hosts detailing all relevant background information pertaining to the ECOWISE concept is available for purchase.
ECOWISE is a 14-day educational adventure, starting and ending at O.R. Tambo International Airport in Johannesburg.
