Trainer’s Profile

As the director of Savage Wilderness and founder for Adventure First Aid, James Savage has been involved professionally in the outdoor industry for over 20 years. As a kid, he grew up camping, rock climbing, whitewater rafting, mountaineering and everything else in between. He often says he feels more at home living under canvas than he does when living in an actual home. Being the son of an adventure pioneer from Kenya, James first attempted Mt. Kenya when he was 5 years old, successfully walking the entire way. Adventuring is in his blood and bones and every workday he’s outside is another opportunity to explore. As an experienced Instructor, James holds outdoor qualifications as an International Raft Federation Trip Leader class 4/5, BCU Level 2 coach in 5-star whitewater Kayaking, as well as Summer Mountain Leader qualifications.
