This journey is a very special one as it focus not only on conservation initiatives, but also on sustainability and community as these elements are all inter-related. Therefore, throughout the itinerary you will be exposed to ‘Environment is at the heart’ along with a number of meaningful themes.
‘Our journeys change lives.’ – An itinerary like this will allow everyone to understand the challenges faced in conservation. You will return home thinking differently about conservation. ‘A light camp footprint.’ – as part of the sustainability theme, the luxury lodges you will be staying have light camp footprint. There is no better way of showcasing this than at DumaTau. The camp was re-built in a different location in 2012. One of the game drive roads passes through the main area of the old camp but you will not realise that because there are no remaining signs of a camp.
‘Mega-moves of mega fauna’ – this is largely linked to the Botswana Rhino reintroduction programme run by Wilderness Safaris Wildlife Trust. You will be exposed to this at Mombo Camp, the heart of where this project has taken place. ‘Hwange – against all odd’ – at Little Makalolo, you will have chance to learn the conservation projects happening there. This includes pumping waterholes, elephant research and visiting a local community. There are many more stories to share including recycling, solar energy initiatives at DumaTau and Mombo.
