The Namibia Crossing
"It is an experience of a life time. So well organised and you meet people from all over the world and you get to see apart of the world that not everyone gets to see and appreciate. You leave there feeling part of a second family."
"Thank you so much for another life-changing event. It's is truly a privilege to get to explore such a remarkable area, whilst making memories with my dad that will last both our lifetimes. If it weren't for your time and dedication to bringing incredible adventures to everyday people, we would never be able to experience something so unique. Can't wait for the next adventure!"
"Simply the most amazing running experience I've had."
'Thank you, thank you for the most magical time last week. It really was the best event I’ve ever been to, and by far the one that I’ve enjoyed the most. Initially I was worried that I hadn’t done enough training blah blah, but as we got further into the run I realised more and more that its really more about the people than the running. You guys and all the runners.
So – to you guys and all the unrelenting hard work you and your team put into looking after us – thank you again.'
"I just want to say a huge thank you to you and Owen and your entire caring professional team. The attention to detail in making this a memorable life experience didn't go unnoticed. I am super grateful for the amazing goodie bag and the kit bag! How you guys managed to make the camping so very liveable in such a remote place, I'll never know! Thank you for creating an experience which allowed me to experience what could easily be the most beautiful place I've ever been."
'I just wanted to tell you how super impressed Andrew and I were with you all and the whole organisation and efforts that you put into this event. You are very special people and you organised a very special event and did so in the most charming and delightful way! You clearly have the knack of getting a great team together! We still cannot believe the venue and surroundings that you took us to and I so grateful that people like you make the effort to organise such events! It was the trip that exceeded all of our expectations by a million miles (or kilometres) and despite previous great holidays and trips - Andrew and I feel that this one outshone them all.'
"The event is in a superbly stunning unique environment.. complemented by an abundance of expert education by those who know the land, its history and its ecosystems so well. As Stephen (Granger) put so well .. the visual, physical and educational elements instill the understanding of how privileged we are to experience those areas. Owen and Tamaryn and their team of hardworking crew have EVERYTHING covered, our safety, comfort, delicious hot meals, entertainment and overall experience were meticulously planned and catered for, nothing was too much trouble. Absolute value for money, compared to similar styled international events, Wildrun® excel at delivering a first class experience at a very reasonable cost."
"I really just wanted to send both of you a huge Thank You to you and your team. Last week was truly a remarkable experience that I am battling to describe to anyone who asks – closest word is EPIC and that doesn’t do it enough justice. It is 5 days that shifts every person that attends. Your professional team, service and approach to every detail certainly made it that very special. So big up to you both – big thanks to your whole team and look forward to seeing you at many future events."
'Now that I’ve had a weekend to relflect I just wanted to thank you, Owen and the whole team (cleaners, tent setter-uppers, donkey-boiler heaters, drivers, checkpoint teams, National Park staff, cooks, rubbish collectors etc etc) - so much work by so many people to allow a privileged few of us to experience a really wild place.
The running went better than I had thought it would and I’m sad it’s over. I went for a long mountain hike at the weekend (amazing how bodies can recover).
Wildrunner is a fantastic outfit.'
"Your organisation of the event was out of the top-drawer and the Richtersveld will surely become a race of choice among international adventure seekers, and some international elites. Your formula is a great one and the personal and family touches rounded off the perfect way to spend five days."
