Nature feeds my soul. It calms my mind. It warms my heart. Our beautiful wild animals roam the Land without a voice, never taking more from the Earth than they give back. This harmony is so pure. It’s truth runs deep within me. I love to run to this beat of the Earth; its rawness. It’s such a privilege to roam these open spaces that our beloved animals share so freely with us. The energy of those I meet along this journey radiates such warmth; it’s a beautiful Life when we open our eyes to the things that matter.
Wildlands, a leading environmental NPO, aims to underwrite the sustainable development of all South Africans. Central to their work is a focus on unlocking the potential of the underprivileged - they have an incredible contribution to make, if they’re only allowed to do so.
A Wildlands initiative, the Wild Series was established to profile South Africa’s spectacular natural heritage while raising funds for key conservation projects. These events provide participants with the opportunity of running or mountain biking through some of our most beautiful, wildness location and have raised millions for conservation in the process. From protecting the African Wild Dog and the Bearded Vulture to incredible adventures through awe-inspiring landscapes – the Wild Series challenges are about more than just sports.
