Passport DC: Miles Nolting & Dan Moss at the Botswana Embassy Open House
This past Saturday both Dan Moss & Miles Nolting served as the Africa Adventure Company’s “ambassadors” at the Botswana Embassy’s Open House.
Visitors were treated to interactive cultural and wildlife experiences, including overview of Botswana’s basketry, diamond industry and samples of local cuisine. The highlight was a collaborative effort with National Geographic: VR Headsets with incredible 360° video footage of lions, elephants, wild dogs and hippos!
We were ecstatic that more than 3000 people visited the embassy on Saturday, most of which stopped by our table inquiring about safaris to not only Botswana, but all throughout Africa. Dan & Miles passionately and authoritatively discussed the highlights of wildlife experiences in Botswana, like elephant river crossings at Chobe National Park, exploring the wetland-inhabitants of the Okavango Delta by mokoro, and the pursuit of cheetahs in the vast, arid plains of Nxai Pan National Park & the Central Kalahari Game Reserve.
The host of the Open House, the Botswana Ambassador to the United States David John Newman, was also kind enough to stop by our table. He thought it was quite amusing that our two tallest employees were AAC’s “ambassadors!”
