Nature insists on

whatever benefits

the whole

– Marcus Aurelius

We believe that nature holds the power to educate more than any classroom can. Joining a course or excursion with Pathfinders is not about mastering nature, it is about embracing it. This is how we become more at one with the world that we live in. And then we take you further on this incredible journey, because when you embrace nature, you start to understand it, and then we care for it, with all our might.

We want to share and celebrate this with every single person that joins us. We see the preservation of our world as a collaborative approach that starts with that first igniting of wonder in our surroundings, and the more we learn, the greater our passion to protect and live in harmony with what is so precious.

Pathfinders has been designed from a Passion. From a love of the nature, a passion for providing people with quality guiding experiences and a love for showcasing the amazing continent that is Africa. Every course we run is planned with this in mind.

Pathfinders is about quality, We don’t want to be the company that says we offer the most, we want to offer the best. Our promise to you is that we will give you the best experience and training possible. Whether you’re on a school group excursion, doing a Field Guide course, or you want to learn more about the bush, prepare to experience nature, to be humbled, and to leave different, more at one with nature, with a deeper understanding and respect.
