The Team
“Our goal is to offer people a place where they can not only grow and develop, but also to recharge, reconnect with life and find clarity in themselves. We offer a springboard from which people can confidently enter the job market and conservation sector, equipped with a greater understanding of wildlife and the natural environment, and of who they are and what they offer.”

“Many traditional cultures use simple, powerful activities to heal people and help them release emotional and psychological problems that block their true potential. We draw on some of these activities during the retreat.”

“We are experiencing an inspiring growth phase on Bergplaas and with the Spirit of the Wild Programme, which has come into its own in this era of environmental sustainability and climate change.”- Wayne Maspero
