The Expedition

We start at the Zingela Bush Camp on the mighty Tugela River. The focus here is on experiential personal development activities and training sessions to further develop your personal leadership and critical work skills.

You will then divide into 3 groups to rotate through 3 very different experiences with down-time between each one. This will include: a Game Ranger experience and Anti-Poaching course; A Wilderness Trail and threatened species research and monitoring activity; A Hippopotamus and Nile Crocodile conservation project.

There are five main locations:

  1. Zingela Bush Camp
  2. Mtunzini Camp, WESSA
  3. Hluhluwe-iMfolozi Game Park
  4. St Lucia, Isimangaliso Wetland Park
  5. Somkhanda Game Reserve

Each location is situated in the heart of KwaZulu-Natal. At each site we ensure you have a great, challenging and unforgettable time. Also, you will meet and witness the very best that South Africa has to offer.

The Accommodation:

Thatched and canvas huts, canvas tents and sleeping under the stars. The food is fantastic, the beer is cold and the environment is stunning. The people are the friendliest you could hope to meet and our expert guides are some of the best in the world.

The Safari

A safari is one of the ultimate experiences for anyone visiting South Africa and Odyssey Wild Trail will provide the most incredible wildlife sightings possible. You will go to wild places where you can view the Big 5; elephant, lion, leopard, buffalo and rhino. There are nearly 300 other species of animals in the South African bush so excellent wildlife viewing will be absolutely guaranteed!  The wildlife in South Africa is amongst the best in the world.
