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.

Ken Muturi was first exposed to the outdoors while attending Brookhouse International School in Nairobi. With a natural flair for athletics from playing rugby and extracurricular activities, participating in the President’s Award earning Bronze, Silver, and Gold, Ken’s natural inclination to be outside translated perfectly to working in the Outdoor Industry. After secondary school, Ken graduated from a graphic design course and pursued a career. However, a few years trapped behind a desk had him reconsider how important spending time outside is. Soon after that realization, Savage Wilderness offered Ken a chance to work in the outdoors. In 2014 Ken became proficient in many outdoor disciplines such as rock climbing, mountaineering, whitewater rafting, and kayaking. In 2017 Ken became a Trainer for Adventure First Aid. Holding qualifications as a BCU Level 2 instructor and first aider Ken has established himself as a competent outdoorsman and first aid facilitator.
