As I have traveled Africa, it has become clear to me that the “wild side” of the planet provides a unique healing experience for those suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and depression. Having battled both of these mental and emotional problems, I found that time in wild nature played an integral part in my healing process. The effect tracking a lion or approaching an elephant on foot has is worth future study by researchers. I have no data, but I do have the evidence of my own experience to relay. I found an easing of symptoms and level of peace wandering around in the wild parts of Southern Africa. From my experience sprung the idea to bring others here and provide them the same opportunity I had to heal.
I intend to purchase a property in the Moditlo area of the 17,000-hectare Blue Canyon Conservancy in order to build a small house from which I can take my brothers on Safaris. I am partnering with Judea Harvest, friends whom own game farms, and donors to give all expense paid trips to my military brothers who need time to find healing in a place that doesn’t continuously attempt to analyze them, question them, and push them.
Each guest or team will have the opportunity to participate in a community building project, and will then be taken on a safari.
In order for this to happen, I need to procure a property from which I can host each traveler. The $50,000 is enough money to purchase a 10000 sq. m property in a Big Five conservancy. Once this property is acquired and construction project can be funded to build a house with multiple separate rooms for guests to stay in.
Transportation, community projects and safaris will be coordinated by Judea Harvest.
