Experience Fundamental Belonging

 

We connect people to nature, through week-long facilitated journeys in extraordinary African wilderness areas.

 
 

African Wilderness

 

With its immense scale, beauty and potentially dangerous wildlife, African wilderness inspires the vulnerability needed for profound personal growth.

 
 

Powerful Faciliation

 

We combine industry-leading experience in wilderness with best practice facilitation skills and relevant indigenous knowledge to provide a powerful deep nature connection process.

 
 
 

 

“Something happened over there for which I was not prepared and which was tremendously powerful for laying out the rest of my life.”

 
 

— Jan Ernst de Groot, Chief Legal Officer, Ahold Delhaize

Our Journeys

 
 

Every journey includes a night in a lodge or camp to start and finish the wilderness immersion. On trail, we drink safely from rivers, prepare and eat the food we carry together, keep watch by a fire at night and sleep under the stars or in simple tents. The facilitation support we provide includes a 45 minutes consultation call prior to your journey, reading materials, our powerful deep nature connection process, a 30 minutes follow-up call and membership to our global alumni community.

 
 

“I would not exchange the immensity of the experience I had for any of the luxuries I left behind.”

BOTSWANA

Okavango Delta

The Okavango Delta is the largest inland delta in the world, is surrounded by the Kalahari desert and is a haven for abundant animal and plant life. It is wild and remote. Moremi Game Reserve, the first reserve in Africa to be proclaimed by a tribal authority, protects much of the deltas rich and breathtakingly beautiful habitat. 

Our wilderness journey takes place in a secluded southern corner of the world famous Chief’s Island within Moremi Game Reserve. Seasonal floods transform the area into a wonderland, with large tree-ringed islands connected by lush floodplains and channels filled with crystal clear water pure enough to drink. The region is home to high densities of wildlife, including elephant, buffalo, hippo, crocodile, giraffe, numerous antelope species, lion, leopard and wild dog.

SOUTH AFRICA

Kruger National Park

The Makuleke is located in the far north of the Kruger National Park, between the Limpopo River to the north and the Levuvhu River to the south. Owned by the Makuleke people, this concession is one of the last remaining outposts of true wild-land in South Africa. 25 000 hectares of uncharted valleys, lush riverine bush, rugged gorges, fever tree forests and remote floodplains hold more than 75% of the biodiversity of Kruger National Park. With large free-roaming herds, a rich archaeological footprint and a tangible sense of solitude, the Makuleke is an ideal wilderness journey destination.

Truly Sustainable Conservation

What we leave behind is as important as what we gain from our time in wilderness. We only leave footprints in the areas we operate in. We select areas where our operation can prevent other, potentially damaging, economic activity form taking place. We employ and train people from local communities to deliver specialist indigenous knowledge and guiding services on our Journeys. Consistent impact is important to us, so support for essential community and conservation development initiatives is built in to our business model. Financial contributions go directly to community and conservation initiatives overseen by our facilitators.
