Walking safaris, leadership trails and expeditions in unspoiled Africa

Ubuntu means ‘humanity’: open yourself by connecting to nature and those around you. Ubuntu is an ancient African philosophy based on tribal culture and nature. UbuntuTrails offers walking safaris, leadership training and expeditions based on these Ubuntu principles in pristine wilderness in Angola, Botswana, Mozambique and South Africa. We offer close interaction with wildlife and local cultures in a safe and ethical fashion.

When you choose to join us on a leadership training, walking safari or expedition,  you automatically join our Tribe – our online community. And part of the money for your trip is invested into the local communities via our Trust. If you so desire, you can be actively involved in our communal projects.

Leadership Trails: Leading by nature

We offer leadership development based on trails guide training. Our programs are designed to develop and hone your leadership skills. Our trails are open to all adventurous individuals or teams who want to develop their personal and team leadership skills.

 

Walking Safaris: Get out of your comfort zone

There is no experience more humbling and mindblowing than walking in an unspoiled Big 5 wilderness area in the African bush. Many of our guests are seasoned Africa travellers who want to get closer to nature and more personal in their interaction with wildlife.

Expeditions: Explore the unknown

Our Expeditions can be one-offs with a real adventurous character allowing us to explore new frontiers in Africa, or trips with regular departure dates to areas we know well. These expeditions are based on small (often private) groups and require your active participation.

Walking Safaris

There is no experience more humbling and mindblowing than walking in an unspoiled Big 5 wilderness area in the African bush. As the bush gives us no time for rehearsals, replays or second chances. There is no greater place to be out of your comfort zone either. And being out of your comfort zone means you will be open to see yourself for who you really are.

When all around you is foreign, or vaguely familiar in your reptilian brain, your senses start to become alive again. Smell, hearing, sight, touch, taste and sometimes even your sixth sense might kick in. Your re-awakened senses will force you to be situational aware. In the ‘here and now’ or ‘feeling alive’ as many of our guests have told us. Many of our guests are seasoned Africa travellers who want to get closer to nature and more personal in their interaction with wildlife.

Activities on Leadership Trails

Our leadership developing activities are based on the training of professional trails guides. Each person will take turns as a leader and as a follower. We will teach you to plan a trail based on your team's needs, capabilities and expectations, to communicate your plan to them and get their support, execute your trail including handling unforeseen situations (sometimes called 'problems'). After each (part of the ) trail we will do a 'post mortum' in order to maximize learning from doing for all participants. Our guide and facilitator will make sure we will be safe at all times.

Let our tribe members lead your decision

Many of our participants are so enthusiastic about our leadership trails that they have joined us several times and brought their colleagues or friends with them. Others are kind enough to share their experiences with us and with you.
