When To Go


The intention behind these trails is to take nothing we want but everything we need – getting back to basics. We become a modern tribe of explorers returning to wilderness. The experience is an incredible reset and reconnection with nature.

Manyoni Private Game Reserve, South Africa

Nights 1 – 4

Imagine a world where people are raised rooted. Connected to ancestral wisdom; moving forward with a sense of belonging to the earth. On trail these parts of ourselves are given the chance to awaken.


Trails are led by two professional Wilderness Trails Guides on Manyoni Private Game Reserve and you have the option of spending three nights (four days) or four nights (five days) in the wild. There are no demarcated campsites or routes for these trails. You set your own pace and explore according to your interests and capabilities, sleeping at a pristine site under the stars each night (no tents) and packing up in the morning to leave no trace.

These trails are run for groups of minimum 4 and maximum 8 guests. It’s important to note that our trails differ in that you receive luggage support. This means that you can walk with a daypack and receive your larger pack in the evening, leaving you to enjoy your walking and wilderness experience without being heavily encumbered.

Trails run from the start of May till the end of October.


Guests are required to provide their own food and equipment and we have a comprehensive list to make sure that you have everything you need to be safe and comfortable. We sleep out under the stars and each take turns for a night watch shift, which is a high-light experience for guests.

Manyoni Private Game Reserve offers 23 000 hectares of big five wilderness where over 70 species of mammals, including cheetah, wild dog and hyena roam free.

Why It’s a Wild Again Favourite

Quite simply, a primitive trail is the purest wilderness experience you can have. It removes all the frills of a safari so that you can experience the bush the way your ancestors did centuries ago.
