As South Africa celebrates the good news that the strict Covid related lockdowns have had a positive effect on the slow down of rhino poaching in this country, conversely we should be aware that this translates, sadly, to an anticipated increase in appetite for the illicit trade in rhino horn and other illegally traded species.
Our Wilderness Leadership Guides who many of you may have met on trail are a special group of people with a collective 100+ years of experience of taking people safely into the Wilderness. Passionate conservationists, amazing human beings and the backbone of our organisation.
Does this scenario seem familiar? You go on an outdoor adventure and have an amazing connection with nature. Perhaps it's a school excursion, a camping trip, or even one of our wilderness trails. You feel connected, awake, aware. The less important aspects of life - those everyday worries, somehow fall away and you gain a fresh perspective and appreciation for life. You leave a new person. Refreshed and inspired to keep up that connection with nature, and the regenerative effect it has on you. And then…Nothing…
