This unique six-day Wilderness Trails Skills course provides a perfect platform for aspirant or qualified guides or nature lovers to discover and reconnect with meaningful wilderness encounters and the wilderness itself. The course may challenge some personal boundaries as you'll sleep in the wild under the stars, share wilderness experiences, and travel light with minimal supplies. It’s certainly more about depth than distance! The backdrop, of course, is traversing some of the finest and most remote wilderness regions of southern Africa on foot. While there are no formal subjects or lectures, the emphasis of the course lies in meaningful wilderness philosophy, low-impact guiding skills and bush lore.
The adventures are instructed by some of the most experienced trainers/guides in Africa, with a choice of stunning venues within the Makuleke Concession in the Kruger National Park. Lessons taught will not be found in any book, but learning will be “hands-on”. Lessons include wilderness appreciation and the MIA (Minimal Impact Approach), situational awareness, setting up eco-friendly camps, and water purification and ‘leaving no trace’ are but a few of the advanced skills you will learn.
