Here what others have been saying:
"A mindful pilgrimage indeed." ...a Mindful Pilgrim from Oregon
“Africa looms large in our collective imagination: the vast expanse, the untamed wildlife, the endless possibilities. The beauty is limitless, but with Troy Snyder as your guide, the most incredible discovery might just be yourself. Certainly the opportunity to see hyenas hunting, giraffes galloping and elephants carousing is thrilling, but it soon becomes apparent that safari is less about what you see than it is about weaving the epic sights sounds into our own reality. The interior mediation that comes from spending hours each day immersed in the wildest of environments will inevitably change your perspective not just on the world but also, on yourself. And since you will be spending your time with a new band of brothers, you may find that the most interesting animals of all are your traveling companions, as the bonds you will forge with them could very well end up being the trip's most enduring gift.”... a Mindful Pilgrim from Washington
"I will never be able to say enough about a trip I took with Mindful Pilgrimage and our host Troy Snyder. I love to travel, meet new people, experience new cultures. But this was beyond any of my expectations. This trip was to South Africa and Botswana. With a group of guys I had never met, but hopefully will always be brothers going forward. It was a journey not a trip. Full of fantastic memories and stories that I will always be grateful for. And a year prior I would have never seen myself there. Sometimes when presented with a decision. It’s always better to say yes and not think to much about why you did. Our Pilgrimage this past April is a reminder to me that only good things can happen when you do. Troy managed not only to put together a fantastic trip and experience, but also limited the group that went to people he thought would match up well for the 3 week experience. That was necessary, because we spent a lot of time together. Traveling to some very private and remote areas, only shared by very few. Private camps not open to the public. Guides not working for large game reserves but native people who’s families had been caretakers of these special places for decades. In many cases we were able to do things that only private landowners would be able to do. We need not ask for permission most places as we controlled our own destination. And I wouldn’t have wanted it any other way. I can sit here and tell you about all the animals we saw, the beautiful scenery we encountered. But that’s what you need to see for yourself. What I wanted to make sure I wrote about. Was the life changing experience I had, and I believe 6 others as well that wouldn’t have happened without just saying yes. I am already looking forward to my next trip with Troy and mindful pilgrimage. Wherever it may be." ....a Mindful Pilgrim from New York
"Mindful Pilgrimage to Africa was unforgettable. I’m so grateful to have been able to go. It was a pleasure to go to different beautiful locations with Troy, Parth and the guys. We were in good hands with our guides. Each one of the places we visited worked well together as a whole. I loved each one of them. It was good mix of fun, leisure, safari and thoughtful group discussions. It was nice to practice living in the present and going with the flow. I look forward to another Mindful Pilgrimage." ...a Mindful Pilgrim from Washington D.C.
"Thousands of words are not enough to tell the story. Hundreds of photos are not enough to paint the picture. And 2 weeks with Troy on safari is only a bare beginning of an appreciation of all that Africa offers. So perfect was the organization, pace, company, I would do the entire trip again despite the many other areas of Africa I want to and have yet to explore. I have several friends who have been on safari and not one has related experiences anywhere near as authentic as we had on our trip. I can’t recommend Troy highly enough. He is a seasoned traveler with a unique eye for authenticity. You will not be disappointed." ...a Mindful Pilgrim from California
