Every year we highlight our newest safari programs and for 2010-2011, Voluntourism is the forefront of adventure travel and is seeing incredible growth across Africa! The opportunity to expand your horizons beyond a traditional safari experience and work hand-in-hand with local conservationists and communities is unforgettable.
These programs are exclusive to Africa Adventure Co. We know our continued business journey is “Supporting Africa”, exemplified by our sponsoring school students living in communities near parks as they are the next generation conserving their wildlife heritage. Join up for week-long, life-changing experiences. Perfect for college students, teachers, medical professionals and anyone with a love to help out.
8-Day Research at Mashatu (Botswana)
David Evans, Business Manager to the Rattray Camp portfolio (which includes MalaMala, Sable Camp and Rattray’s) has admitted during our decade-long friendship that his true passion lies with Mashatu. This hidden gem in the Tuli Enclave is different from the other MalaMala properties as it is a bit remote and oh so scenic!
If you have stayed in Vundu Tented Camp or canoed on the Zambezi River, then you’ve probably met Nick and Des Murray. For over 15 years they have dedicated their lives to preserving the wildlife and integrity of Mana Pools. During a week stay your days will be filled tracking wild dog, recording elephant sightings and donating time to the Bushlife Conservancy and its ongoing work with the park rangers. In addition, guided walks, game drives and canoeing will be offered.
