Durban, SouthAfrica: Green Corridors will begin eThekwini Enviro Week with a Pop Up Camp and Campfire Stories hosted by Matata Adventures and renowned wilderness guide, author and coach, Sicelo Mbatha on Saturday 18 March.
This is a rare evening of campfire stories and experiences from the wilderness at Matata Adventures, a Green Corridors Wild Camping area in the Valley of 1000 Hills, managed by Mlu Mthembu, a highly experienced Durban-based nature guide.

His teachings and wisdom are world-renowned and this is an evening not to be missed.
“I invite you to connect with the indigenous wisdom of my people and find your soul through the spirit of our collective humanness, or ubuntu. I am the black lion who helps people discover the wild animal within. I am the black lion who roars for peace and harmony on the great mother earth. I am the black lion, alive in the wilderness,” says Mbatha.
