Learn how to travel quietly and safely through the African bush, live out of your backpack, develop orienteering and navigational skills, tackle some wilderness first aid, interpret the tracks and signs of both man and beast and learn the traditional medicinal uses of plants. Cook and eat around an open campfire and sleep out under African skies. This is just a taste of our wilderness tour activities.

The S.O.N Wilderness Experience offers opportunities to gain a number of specialist bush skills certificates that will make a unique addition to your C.V.

Learning how to safely target shoot using big calibre rifles (under supervision) is an additional option that can be requested.

This itinerary would be ideal for Air Force & Army cadets (CCF) and Duke of Edinburgh (DofE) students in particular.

All tours can be tailor-made to your specific requirements and budget.


Best enjoyed over 16 days (14-day period in country). Longer tours available. Please request a tailor-made itinerary.
