"Everyone on the Spirit of the Wild Programme is treated equally and there is no skin colour here. It has really helped to heal me and to know I can hold my own in this world."

Spirit of the wild course in action

“My first visit to Bergplaas in 2013 was a stepping stone that enabled me to better understand the role of the natural environment in our lives and life in general. My ongoing engagement with Bergplaas has allowed me to see the wild, natural world in a whole new dimension, and this has enriched my capacity as a professional to understand value and to better grasp the major sustainability challenges we face and how to tackle them more effectively.”- Guillaume Taylor, Managing Partner of Quadia and Trustee of Bergplaas Private Nature Reserve.
