Wilderness Trails

Wilderness Expeditions and community programmes for young people and students to South Africa and UK.

“In the beautiful, untainted realms of the iMfolozi, I experienced something special: calmness, serenity, and an escape from urban trivialities as I wandered in the open.”

For over 60 years, the Wilderness Foundation has provided inspirational Wilderness expeditions for schools and other groups. See below for essential information on all aspects of our expeditions. Call us directly if you have any other questions 0300123373.

“This expedition gave me a permanent appreciation for Wilderness.
Digging for water, leaving no trace or ensuring we were quiet when needed, and simply sitting and listening to the world around you, made me so much more satisfied, appreciative of and perhaps even happier with life. Absent from modern technologies.
I learned of a new way to live not simply in nature but with it, which I feel is unbelievably special.”
