Birding on the Run

There are many, many good reasons to run, and we’re adding birding to the mix. Birding is not a hobby owned entirely by people in long khaki socks, zip-off pants, floppy hats and big boots. In South Africa, we are blessed with diverse and beautiful birdlife just about everywhere we turn. As trail runners, we frequently come across birds in their natural environments; flushing out eagle owls from the scrub as we pass, spotting marine birds on our beach runs or spying birds of prey circling high above our mountain adventures.

Wildrun® Africa is a portfolio of bespoke running experiences hosted by Wildrunner. The heartbeat of the Wildrun® is exploring and experiencing truly wild places on the run. Be it on the Wild Coast of South Africa, the remote mountains of Lesotho, the geologically and botanically rich Richtersveld desert or the bushveld of Mapungubwe, each Wildrun® is unique, and each a potentially life-changing experience. No markers.  No massive crowds. Just you, your sense of adventure and a truly wild place.

You’ve heard the rumblings. In 2019, we add Rwanda.
