Ubuntu Leadership Trails


As a Tribe Member I’m happy to introduce to you Ubuntu Trails, the newest venture of my friend and business partner Peter van Houdt.

Ubuntu means ‘humanity’. It is an ancient African philosophy based on tribal culture and nature. Ubuntu believes in balance and in a universal bond of sharing that connects all humanity. Ubuntu Trails offers leadership training for senior executives and entrepreneurs by learning from walking safaris in pristine big 5 areas in Southern Africa. We help them understand and develop their leadership skills in a practical, fun and intense manner. When you choose to join and walk Trails with us, you also join our Tribe – our online community. And part of the money for your trip is invested into the local communities via our Trust. If you so desire, you can be actively involved in our communal projects.
