SAN SURVIVAL AND TRACKING

A completely different tracking and survival course awaits

So, we already offer a week long tracking course, what is so different about this one? Well, it is quite simple. On this course we learn tracking not from experienced guides but from the original masters of the art. But, it is more than just the tracking aspect. We have a rare window into the culture of one of the most fascinating indigenous people.

We explore so much more than that of track and trail. The San have a legendary ability to get into the mind of the animals they are pursuing. Almost everything out there can be used for something. Come and walk the wilderness with these incredible people and immerse yourself. What are you waiting for?
