About Us

About Us

Eko Tracks was founded by Werner Dörgeloh as a result of his passion for and knowledge of Africa. Born and raised in Namibia, he studied and practiced wildlife management in South Africa for 20 years through teaching and research. Now based in the USA, he teaches at a university in North Carolina and directs study abroad programs to Namibia. His extensive travel experience in southern Africa and his exceptional knowledge of the African savanna and its wildlife, have resulted in adventure tours that ensure a memorable experience.
