Operating camps and safaris in six countries on the African continent, Wilderness Safaris is going into its 36th year in style by offering 8 life-changing Travel with Purpose journeys which will make an impact. Filled with exciting destinations, guided by local experts and with a unique behind-the-scenes access to conservation and the community processes of Wilderness Safaris and its partners, every journey promises to be unforgettable.
In Namibia the destination will be beautiful untamed Damaraland. The date for this exceptional experience is 16-21 June 2019 with an itinerary that will focus on conservation initiatives in this area supported by Wilderness Safaris. Furthermore, funds raised through this exclusive trip will go directly to the Save the Rhino Trust, a partner and beneficiary of this journey.
Ecotourism has been a fundamental part of Wilderness Safaris since its beginning in 1983, with the aim of conserving and restoring Africa’s wilderness and wildlife. A vision statement, embedded in the character of the company as well as in every one of its employees. What better way to experience this unique brand of ecotourism than through an itinerary that is designed to be a fun, enlightening expedition that takes you to picturesque Damaraland, with the added incentive of actually helping conservation efforts in the area.
Intended to not only showcase this remarkable part of the world, the itinerary is also designed to give first-hand exposure to remote rural communities like the Riemvasmakers, who form part of Namibia’s world-leading community conservancy system. Witness the impact of community-based conservation and how it has saved the black rhino and many other desert-adapted species. Guests will also get the opportunity to track the Critically Endangered black rhino on foot across the parched rocky desert of north-western Namibia. Accompanied by community and rhino conservation experts, they will be able to learn more about the last truly free-ranging population of black rhino left in the world.
Guest capacity is limited, so be sure to book your spot as soon as possible.
