closely with the client and the team on the ground in Africa to devise a comprehensive aftercare journey. Locations, activities, therapies and duration are chosen individually together with a team from a pool of trusted professionals and experts in their fields. Expedition Discovery can be designed to be relaxing, or mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually challenging. The trip can also be a combination of both to make the client a more resilient person by the end of this journey.

Self-discovery This journey of self-discovery aims to open up new perspectives in life through new experiences, impressions and challenges, providing essential strategies that allow people to cope with life’s difficulties and uncertainties in a more flexible and adapted way. The journeys can be organised for individuals or for small groups, but in all cases, every detail of care and security is considered to give the client a broad perspective of the African continent. “Africa”, says James Otigbah, “works on its own time and rhythm.” 

Africa works on its own time and rhythm

–­ James Otigbah, Expedition Discovery

A unique feature of Expedition Discovery’s offering is that each client has a dedicated executive protection specialist at their side during the entire journey, who acts as a mentor, helps with logistics and takes care of the client’s protection. As James Otigbah explains, “Expedition Diccovery is a follow-up program for anyone who has been through clinical rehabilitation to cure an addiction or a mental health issue such as alcoholism, drug and/or nicotine addiction, sex addiction, gambling addiction, depression, trauma or burnout. “Leaving treatment or a treatment facility and returning to the old environment with possible toxic temptations is a challenging time,” he says. “The goal-oriented Expedition Discovery is centred on preparing clients to face the world by giving them new perspectives in life. It is a bridge between a treatment and the return to a familiar environment.” Expedition Discovery’s journeys within Africa begin in Kenya’s capital Nairobi two to three days after completing the Calda treatment. Kenya features an unbelievable variety of different climate zones, landscapes and cultures, and on the threeweek journey, clients will have plenty of time to relax, travel on the road and staying in luxurious as well as simple accommodation. The routes and activities are put together according to the client’s wishes, needs and physical fitness.
