Everything we are is embodied in our name: Spirited Adventures.
We are not just passionate about wildlife, wilderness, conservation and adventure, but also about the deep and powerful impact these things have on the human spirit. It has been proved decisively that time spent close to nature brings huge life benefits, including a reduction in stress and anxiety, more peace and contentment and greater productivity and well-being. We have always felt it was our responsibility to guide our clients to these things as well as to a closeness with nature and wildlife.
More than anything else it is this duality that defines us as an organization and makes us unique. This acceptance that we always walk in two worlds - the one we see and the one in our heads - and the understanding that the state of each of these worlds can profoundly affect how we experience the other.
This is why we have slowly grown our business, to not only encompass a very high level of guided hike safaris, but also to include deeper experiences like mindfulness, self-mastery and women-only safaris. Experiences that have a greater degree of influence on our inner world and that use the bushveld as a backdrop for transformative and potentially life-changing experiences.
We deliver exceptional:
bushveld based leadership and team interventions.
skills development within the conservation and guiding arenas.
Your experience will be active, exciting, immersive, connective, safe and impactful as we take pride in offering first-rate adventure delivered by highly experienced, qualified, trusted and committed professionals.
How are we different?
We only promise what we can deliver. Our service is earmarked by absolute professionalism and a high level of unpretentious, sophisticated and personalized service. We only cater to small groups because only in a small group can you move through the wilderness unobtrusively enough to really feel like you are a part of it all and not just an outside observer.
We are more than happy to customize a unique experience tailored to suit your specific needs if that’s what you are looking for. We are definitely not one of those high-visibility, one-size-fits-all operations.
We fully understand how important and meaningful a trip like this can be to you. So whether this is a once in a lifetime experience, an intervention focused on creating a personal transformation or an annual pilgrimage to your special place, we are confident that we will exceed your expectations. We believe our references speak for themselves.
Conservation is fundamental to our purpose.
15% of African wilderness has been lost in the last 20 years.
Our philosophy is to tread lightly on earth; so our focus is always on low-eco footprint safaris and leaving no trace. Many of our team are involved in conservation and whilst on safari we are sure to talk about this. For future generations to enjoy what we have, we choose to work in reserves where a percentage of the earnings from your trip results in wildlife habitat protection and community upliftment.
Where our story started.
Back in 1989, Lutz Otto had already guided his first group on a multi-day wilderness, self-sufficient backpacking, experience. In June 2001, whilst in London, he journaled that he would like to create a business to share his passion for adventure, wilderness, wildlife and habitat conservation, leadership and psychology. Spirited Adventures was founded in 2005, initially as a “side-hustle" to express a passion for wilderness in parallel to a traditional corporate career.
We look forward to spending time with you; Creating active, exciting, immersive, connective, safe and impactful experiences that will result in your eagerly planning your next adventure on your journey home.
