There’s no denying it: travel can be one of the most transformational things we can experience in life, and all the more so when we know we’re making a difference! Travel and giving back to nature can go hand in hand, especially when in the hands of both trusted operators and professional conservationists.
When it comes to tracking down some of the most unique and meaningful safaris Africa has to offer, Zimbabwe is a standout. Sustainable tourism takes on many forms, but not every destination offers the kind of education, activities and adventure that Global Basecamps and our partners in Zimbabwe do! Through learning, service and unique ways of experiencing this marvelous country, our Zimbabwe safaris are an opportunity to make a difference while having an experience you’ll cherish for the rest of your life. We’re excited to invite you on our Conservation & Cultural Group Safari this upcoming late October - early November 2019, along with another departure in 2020!
A nation of nearly indescribable historic significance linking Africa and the Middle East, Egypt continues to capture the wonder of the world as it has for millennia! Truly a cradle of civilization, Egypt has one of the longest recorded histories of any country in the world. It boasts among the earliest innovations in writing and agriculture, as well as organized urban cities, religion and central government. Egypt tours survey some of humanity’s most renowned architectural achievements of antiquity, visiting a sophisticated and multicultural civilization that - while having been assimilated by many others - has stood strong for thousands of years.
Of all the travel experiences the world has to offer, the African safari remains a top choice and lifelong dream for many travelers. The continent of Africa hosts innumerable cultures and a kaleidoscope of wildlife biodiversity, and a safari is the perfect way to experience this dazzling part of the world.
Are you looking for a truly unique and meaningful safari experience? Do you want to give back to the wildlife and communities that make East Africa like nowhere else on Earth? Quality safaris are built on healthy ecosystems and the wildlife that inhabit them, and for the third year running we are offering our Kenya Conservation Safari. Exploring the less visited northern Lewa, Ngwesi and Borana Conservancies, as well as the classic Maasai Mara to the south, this safari offers opportunities to participate alongside rangers and other conservation authorities. These places and wildlife are at risk, and supporting their conservation as part of your safari can be a profound experience and means to give back.
