Expedition Class - 'Safari Style Base Camp'
The Wilderness Programme only ever operates in wild and remote destinations - far away from the everyday distractions of life, so as to (1) create a sense of space and help participants relax, release tension and unwind, and (2) take maximum benefit from the positive effects of being immersed in the natural environment (Read more about Nature's Benefits).
Creating a safe environment for participants is crucial to the outcomes of the programme, so over a period of many years, we have have developed and refined our 'expedition class' operation to provide a unique, luxurious and fully mobile 'Safari Style' base camp set up. This not only provides a safe, warm and dry refuge from the elements whatever the weather, and at anytime of the year but which is ecologically sound and low impact on the environment, whilst providing for all basic human needs to a high degree of comfort.
We continuously invest in high performance equipment and accessories from leading brands, combined with an array of innovative gadgets we've designed and developed ourselves, to bring a high level of comfort and hospitality to the experience no matter what the weather conditions.
As a matter of course we leave our destinations in the same way that we found them and operate a strict leave no trace policy at all times. The Safari Style Base Camp and The Wilderness Programme is an all inclusive package experience, which includes: Personal accommodation, a shared 'HAB' living space, toilets, hot showers, all meals, snacks and refreshments, all transfers during the programme, Coaching Psychology, coaches, guides and highly experienced staff.
"Staying in a safe space and trusting said space was priceless!! I thoroughly enjoyed the solitude and the 'just being'. One is surrounded by the natural environment and the peace that that offers. From here I was able to take stock and find my bearings and was able to make some decisions within that safe space". - James
