Some of the best bits
Survive in the Kalahari
Learn how to find water, track wildlife, build a shelter, skin an animal and survive in one of the world’s harshest environments. Get involved with the experts, working alongside the indigenous Bushmen tribes to understand their tribal culture and survival skills.
Help rhinos make a comeback
Hear about Botswana’s most successful rhino breeding programme and get involved with precious conservation efforts. Working alongside a community-run sanctuary, help mend fences, hop on a game drive to track down the residents and spread the conservation word to visiting school groups.
Explore the Okavango Delta
One pole stroke at a time; paddle deep into Africa’s largest delta, floating past papyrus waterways to see giraffes, elephants, zebras and warthogs. Sit back in traditional wooden, dugout mokoros (canoes) and keep your eyes peeled for game. Sleep under the stars in the middle of the Delta with a local community.
Wake up with elephants
Find the Big 5 on safari in Chobe National Park, home to the world’s largest concentration of African elephants. Hang out with the pros and you’ll no doubt track down one of the estimated 120,000 elephants in the park. Stay alert and you might catch a glimpse of leopards, lions, hippos and huge herds of buffalo.
“It felt raw and wild and amazing. I never thought that’s how I’d actually feel, in awe, just meters away from these endangered rhinos!”
“Canoes into the delta. Survival in the desert. Safari, conservation, building a library, BBQs, sunsets, friends, new friends. It was packed and I think about it all the time. Take me back.”
