"Bhejane Nature Training was an unforgettable time in my life. It gave me the chance to grow as a person and make friends that I will have forever. They have a unique style of interacting with everyone, to make sure they get the full potential out of a person. I enjoyed every aspect of the training, but Trails was the best for me. The way the instructors mentored and conducted trails gave me a huge knowledge of how to read the bush. I had amazing instructors who helped me and whom I look up to. It was a wonderful journey." - Jason Gipson - Adv Course 2016/2017
