Children in the Wilderness (CITW) is an environmental and life skills education program focusing on the next generation of rural decision makers. It is the grass roots initiative of Wilderness Safaris and one of the few programs aimed at bridging the divide that exists between communities and wildlife.

The programme is hosted through Eco-Clubs in the local schools and rewards their dedication and commitment with participation in annual CITW camps at Wilderness Safaris camps. The local teachers receive ongoing training for the CITW Eco-Club curriculum which complements the national environmental education syllabus.
