Learn to connect more effectively and achieve lasting change through the power of storytelling in Botswana.

Learn to connect more effectively and achieve lasting change through the power of storytelling in Botswana. This magical bush adventure is led by Manley Hopkinson, an acclaimed explorer, mentor and compassionate leadership guru. Under his guidance, you will learn to re-energise and reconnect with yourself and others, whilst also experiencing a deep connection with our beautiful planet.

Based on a luxury mobile camp situated in the remote ancestral homeland of the Kalahari Bushmen, you will experience wide open spaces which are home to a vast range of game including cheetah, caracal, honey badger, eland and oryx. Take part in the extraordinary trance dancing of the local San people and experience a thrilling, wild sleep-out beneath the stars, guarded by the everwatchful San.

While Manley steers your spiritual path, his brother Neil will take care of the physical. With over twenty-five years’ worth of experience hosting safaris, and as a professional driver for Land Rover and Porsche, his are the safest hands in the business. Together, the brothers will weave the various strands of your individual stories into a tapestry that will become your group’s blueprint for connecting in the future. Their intuitive connection will inspire deeper relationships and a renewed sense of meaning and purpose.

It’s not just adults who will find these experiences rewarding. If you come as a family, your children will be utterly absorbed and will gain life skills to treasure for a happy future.
