The world is Wilfred's playground
This is Wilfred. He’s 25, from the Warm Hart of Africa (Malawi), and doesn’t mind working up a bit of a sweat if it gets him a little further away from the ordinary. He’s hiked most of the mountains in Malawi. His philosophy: If getting there is only half the fun, you’re doing it wrong.
"A challenge, whether it’s climbing a mountain or meeting people who don’t speak your language, is an opportunity to change yourself. The more things you try, the more interesting your life gets".
Go big or stay home
Active types like Wilfred travel for experiences that engage the muscles as much as the mind or the heart. Whether that’s a leisurely bike ride through remote villages, a trek to the top of Mulanje, or physical pursuits like rock-climbing, ziplining, or dogsledding, Active tours deliver as much or as little action as you need.
Our group was a mixed bag in terms of skill, but our CEO set the pace and nobody felt like they were being left behind or holding us up
Local transport powered by you
Wilfred doesn’t travel to merely see the world; he wants to get out and meet it. He knew he’d never get that kind of deep, personal access to Malawi from a tour bus. By biking between cities, he got a glimpse of how rural Malawi lives every day that he’d never have seen from the expressway.
Your world, your terms
Your world, your terms
Wilfred’s been to 22 countries on three different continents, and he’s learned that going with a small group opens up the world in a way going solo doesn’t. All the stuff you don’t want to do – reservations, train tickets, logistics – are done, which means more time to do what you came to do.
See it through Wilfred's eyes
We kept Wilfred busy for 15 action-packed days in Zambia, and we could’ve kept him occupied for several weeks more. Take a look at some of the highlights of his adventure here. (Don’t be surprised if you work up a sweat just looking at them.)
