It is so wonderful to be able to put the pandemic behind us and to see that people are again booking safaris in Africa. Africa is ready and waiting for you, so what are you waiting for?
I have 2 places available for my Rwanda safari from 5-15 December this year (2022). All of our safaris make a difference in conservation and local communities, but this one really goes the extra mile! You will be helping me and the local guides in Akagera National Park to collect vital data on the elephant population and get to know the elephant families in the park. Of course we'll also be on the look out for all the usual suspects on safari, from lions and leopards to giraffes and rhinos, all of which are thriving in Akagera since African Parks joined the Rwandan Development Board in a unique conservation parntership that manages the park. Tourism is essential to help fund park management activities and that's where most of your funds go on this safari, but it also pays for the elephant research on this trip. Then it's off to trek with the mountain gorillas, an experience that many dream of but never get around to doing. Those who've done it with me describe it as up there with the ultimate wildlife experiences in their lives. Going with one of my small groups is the perfect way to do it if you love animals as much as I do and life's too short to have bucket lists you never fill!
I also have 2 places available on my Serengeti Green Season safari in Tanzania from 23-30 May 2023. This safari is a REALLY good price and includes two extraordinary safari camps in central and eastern Serengeti. The focus of this safari is looking for cheetahs and other big cats at the newly refurbished Namiri Plains Camp and spending time among the wildlife and awesome team who run Dunia Camp, Tanzania's only all-female run safari camp. It's a total nature immersion in perhaps Africa's most iconic wildlife park. Both areas are renowned for wildlife in vast open grasslands. Serengeti is great for wildilfe all year round, but going in green season we have the chance to see the occasional big African thunderstorm sunset (nature in all its glory!), lots of baby animals on the plains after the baby boom of the first few months of the year during the rains, and the park with verdant green grass! This one remaining room has only recently become available and it won't last so get in touch if you've always dreamed of going to the Serengeti!
Please get in touch if you're interested in taking these few limited places on my safaris for next year.
We also have some options for you if you're keen to go to Botswana or Namibia with me in 2023, so please get in touch to register your interest now!
