"I expected to feel calm, or maybe even bored without the technology I was accustomed to, but I cannot remember a time in my life when I have felt so alive. My mind buzzed, and I could not move my pencil fast enough to write down every thought. My brain was overwhelmed with stimulation of every observation." ~ Cara Symmes

A wilderness trail is not a hike. It is not a safari. It is not a personal endurance test. You do not need to be a super fit walker. A Wilderness Trail is a deeply profound experience that is very difficult to articulate. It is a chance to return to your natural habitat. A digital detox. A deep experience of our own connection to the natural world. A chance to re-wild yourself and get inspired by the rhythm of nature. Your experience is carefully facilitated by guides who are arguably some of the best in Africa. Our meals are beyond what you could imagine is possible in the Wilderness. An authentic  Wilderness Trail with the Wilderness Leadership School is unlike any other "trail" experience. Those who have been on trail return again and again. You simply have to experience it to fully understand the power of a Wilderness Leadership School Trail. 

"I’m no stranger to the bush. But never like this. I don’t camp, nor do I hike. But I love it, and I’ve always valued the peace it offers and the escape from my world. But this trail was something entirely foreign to me – nothing I’ve ever experienced before. You’re stripped down to you, with no interference between yourself and the environment. For me, it was like coming home." ~ Anne Schafer
