Unique leadership trail in Botswana with Dutch writer and wildlife expert Martine van Zijll Langhout
Next trail: June 19 – 24
In the middle of the wilderness, you come back to yourself, to your origins and to your connection with everything that lives. That is why we can learn so much from the wilderness and wild animals, including focus, resilience, leadership and the importance of challenges. Back in nature, everything becomes clear and there is a wonderful opportunity for reflection, awareness, new insights and the discovery of your personal motives.
During this ‘Over Leven in het Wild’ (all about life and surviving in the wilderness) leadership trail we stay in the vast wilderness of the Central Tuli, in Botswana, famous for its large herds of elephants and leopards, under the enthusiastic guidance of wildlife veterinarian Martine van Zijll Langhout. Supported by a team of professional local guides and trackers, we make walking safaris in nature.
Martine has worked with wildlife for over 30 years, including lions, rhinos, elephants and gorillas. She ran a busy wildlife practice in South Africa and lived in the rainforest of Gabon, where she worked with gorillas. During her challenging and dangerous work in the wilderness, she discovered the great influence of our mind-set, our intuition and what we tell ourselves. She wrote the book ‘About Living in the Wild’ about her experiences and what we can learn from wild animals. She is also head of the veterinary department at ARTIS, a veterinarian with the AAP Foundation, a much sought-after speaker and life coach. With great passion and pleasure she shares during this unique adventure the life lessons of wild animals and the impact we humans have on nature. There is also room for personal conversations and she will inspire you to look differently at nature and yourself.
All profits of this trail will go to the Dutch Timbo Afrika Foundation for its projects in Botswana, which focus on restoring wilderness and wildlife habitats and increasing biodiversity.
