Each trail group is accompanied by a Lead Trails Guide and a Back-up Trails Guide who are both highly trained and experienced. Both are trained and competent in the use of the rifles they carry, and your safety is their primary focus on the trail. It is essential that trailists obey any instruction issued by either one of them.
All trails must have a minimum of six participants otherwise Wildside Trails Co. reserves the right to cancel the trail. If a trail is cancelled by Wildside Trails Co., either a full refund will be given, or trailists will be given the option to book for a future date.

We will do all possible to accommodate special dietary requests however this cannot be guaranteed due to the remote location of the camp.
