The Team

Colin Wylie on a trek by the sea

Colin Wylie

Operations Manager

Colin Wylie, a born and bred South African, grew up travelling the game reserves and wild places of Southern Africa which instilled in him a strong conservation ethic and a passionate love for the outdoors.

A registered Nature guide with extensive experience guiding guests from around the globe Colin has grown his skill set to include logistical planning and execution of premier Mountain bike and Trail running events.

His love for the outdoors and his belief in its impact on young lives led him to design and manage expedition style trips for learners from some of South Africa’s most prestigious private schools.

When Colin is not scouting route maps and accessing safety aspects of these routes you will find him out fishing, birding, mountain biking or hiking with his wife and daughter in the beautiful areas around his hometown.

My motto: Explore, share, protect!
