Leadership Trail Botswana


Leadership Trail Botswana

Invitation to the journey of a lifetime….




The New Financial Forum Foundation would like to point out the most special journey you can make in your life. This very special leadership trail will be organized in June 2022. Then we will trek with a small group for five days, led by experienced South African wilderness guide Alan McSmith, through the very last primeval wilderness in the world: the Okavanga Delta in Botswana.

Nowhere else will you feel the power of nature as strongly as in the Okavanga Delta. Nowhere else you are able to make a real connection with nature, yourself and your purpose in live. Or as Alan McSmith puts it: “The more you explore the wilderness, the more you explore yourself.”


The number of participants is limited: a maximum of ten. You can register or express your interest by sending an email to willem@newfinancialforum.nl before the end of this year (the sooner the better). We need to know at an early stage whether the trip can go ahead. If this is the case, we will organize an extensive information meeting in May 2022 (hopefully with wilderness guide Alan who might be in the Netherlands) and give all information about the trip (what exactly can you expect, how do you prepare, what clothes do you need, and so on). In view of the high costs of this trip, we have to ask you to make the payment by the end of 2021 or at last in January 2022. If the trip is unexpectedly canceled, you will get your money back.


I hope you are able to join this once in a life time journey.
