Our Story

Great ideas are born when friends gather over a meal. At such a gathering of friends, a conversation led to an idea of creating a company that would leave behind a legacy to be proud of. These friends searched for the right product and partner that would match the ideology, passion and enthusiasm of Woodland Africa

We are passionate about our country and we are very proudly South African! We are passionate about the OUTDOORS and the adventures that can be had in the diverse plethora of terrains in Southern Africa. The adventures that can be had in our beautiful part of the world are only limited by our own imaginations and our gear! 

Notice how we have named our products after trees…. Ask yourself will Gordonia or will Rosewood go with me on an adventure today! 

Enter the “Explore More” adventure gear made from Woodland and a wonderful partnership has begun. 

For genuine products, do purchase Woodland merchandise from exclusive Woodland showrooms and authorised dealers only.

Woodland’s parent company, Aero Group was founded in Quebec, Canada in the early 1950’s and has been a well-known name in the outdoor footwear industry since then. Initially, Aero Group focused their exports to the European and Russian markets. 

In the early 1990’s The Group decided to launch some of its products in India. This is when the first hand-stitched leather shoe was introduced, which took the entire shoe market by storm and launched the brand “WOODLAND”. 

Ever since the beginning, Woodland has successfully brought together the power of the human will and the rewards of discovery. 

Woodland began its journey with a single store in India and is now a recognized lifestyle fashion outdoor brand with retail outlets in countries like Hong Kong and Singapore and is represented in 23 different countries. 

Woodland now extends the rewards of discovery of outdoor adventures to the Southern African Region. A region synonymous with the outdoors and its diverse choices of terrain to explore.
