After knowing Robin as a guide and coach for many years, I can say he is one of the most calm, knowledgable and approachable leaders I know. His ability to help you see the smaller details within a bigger picture is a real skill. I have learnt a huge amount from Robin and will continue to do so with each meeting.

Robin van den Berg is not only a highly professional ranger and attentive host but also a great coach and trainer/teacher. I admire his love and passion for nature. Be it in the French Provence observing hundreds of beautiful vultures, getting to know the magnificent South African bush, visiting the residents in the Zurich Zoo or spend time in the near forest - he just seems to know everything about every creature. His huge knowledge about nature also makes him a powerful nature coaching trainer. I had the honor ot attend one of Robin's trainings. I took along many insights about my own - as well as others' - thoughts and behaviors through learning about animals and plants and thouroughly observing them. I am dreaming of travelling back to South Africa for another Safari Retreat!

Over the last 8 years, our teachers and students have been fortunate to have a true and genuine African bush and safari experience with Claudia and Robin. Their knowledge, wonderful personalities, and most importantly, safety of my students, has made our visits to South Africa memorable.

Robin and Claudia not only have a passion for Africa and a deep understanding of the bush. They also know what powerfully insights can arise when we immerse ourselves in nature. Combined with their skills in the area of leadership and team development, they offer a unique opportunity for organisational and personal growth.

Robin and Claudia organized an extraordinary itinerary for Stanford University, with the goal of learning about African wildlife, the management of private and public reserves, threats to habitats and ecosystems, and the role of local communities in conservation initiatives. Not only did Robin and Claudia identify accommodations that were comfortable and safe in spectacular reserves, they also lined up an outstanding set of speakers on wildlife management, community initiatives and anti-poaching efforts. All this layered on top of game drives and bush walks in which we observed a stunning variety of wildlife. I recommend Robin and Claudia with the highest possible degree of enthusiasm!

Learning from an experienced Ranger like Robin is a great opportunity to deeply connect with nature, life and yourself. It is what I recommend to every leader around the globe: Leave your comfort zone and dig into the eternal laws of life, love and leadership. You will grow personally and professionally beyond your imagination.
