EXPEDITIONS 

Every few weeks on the programs there is an epic expedition to a different conservation area. These are exciting and fun trips, learning about wildlife in different environments and the challenges faced by running conservancies as well as getting involved with different projects. 

Here are some examples of current expeditions, these may slightly change from group to group.

Kenya Expeditions

 

  • Ragati conservancy in the Mt Kenya forest. Checking camera traps for endangered species, fly-fishing and exploring the forest. Helping the rangers catch trout fingerlings and moving them into rivers where they can breed. 

  • Ndoto Hills, Chalbi desert and Lake Turkana. Learning about different tribes, their cultures, and very traditional way of life in the remotest of locations which would otherwise be inaccessible to young people traveling in Kenya, this journey has a profound impact on everyone who visits Turkana and these remote areas. 

  • Finally, climbing Mount Kenya with a team of professional mountain guides, cooks, and porters to point Lenana is a great achievement and serious challenge in extreme conditions. 

  • There is also an additional option for experienced riders to do a 3-day riding and camping trip, visiting a famous stud, riding on a conservancy, and riding up Mount Kenya through a forest and onto moorlands.

 

 

Zimbabwe Expeditions

  • Matopos Hills hiking in this incredible landscape to see ancient Rock Art. Some of the best cave paintings in Africa depicting wild animals and early hunters. Matopos is on our route to Victoria Falls and we spend one or two nights here 

  • Victoria Falls 

  • Mana Pools National Park. This is the most beautiful park in Africa! Right on the banks of the River Zambezi, under huge acacia trees with blue mountains behind the Zambezi and animals feeding along the river especially in the dry season, this is an unforgettable safari experience. Some of our Zim programs include time spent on Lake Kariba and from here we run a Mana Pools expedition.
