Wildlife Care Safari

A 14 day Expedition. Our hands-on, behind the scenes safari takes wildlife enthusiasts of all ages on an adventure, interacting with wildlife conservation experts and wildlife veterinarians in the wilderness areas where they are performing their day job. The purpose of this program is to provide an opportunity to Animal, Wildlife and Nature lovers to learn, experience and participate in wildlife management and care interventions in Africa. In the words of Baba Dioum - "In the end we conserve only that which we love, We love only that which we understand, We understand only that which we are taught"

Overview

Meet and learn from expert rangers, conservationists and wildlife veterinarians. This expedition forms the basis of understanding ecology and the economics that is fundamental to the management and conservation of wildlife. The Safari also goes to rural communities on a one-day visit where participants join an outreach project, supporting the wellbeing of their domestic stock and pets. Two to three days will be spent participating in actual wildlife darting and capture operations for the purpose of relocation, diagnostics or radio collar installing. A helicopter is used in this activity and participants will have the opportunity to fly with. A further objective is to provide an opportunity to learn and experience a different side of conservation that can broaden one’s outlook and personal development.
