Join a once-in-a-lifetime safari with AdventureWomen and the African Wildlife Foundation! Enjoy many opportunities to spot wildlife while you learn about the great conservation work of the African Wildlife Foundation and meet some inspirational women who focus on projects that empower women and young girls in the region.
After landing at Johannesburg International Airport in South Africa, you will meet your private guide and the rest of your group of AdventureWomen travelers. You will also be joined by Judi Wineland, AdventureWomen Ambassador and owner, and Carter Smith, African Wildlife Foundation program manager and author of the children’s book African Tea. Once everyone is together, you will board a flight for Victoria Falls, an amazing natural spectacle of power, beauty and grandeur. After arriving, you will head to the hotel and settle in before enjoying a beautiful sunset during an evening cruise along the majestic Zambezi River.
The following day will be filled with exploration, as you visit Victoria Falls and enjoy tremendous views of the main falls while feeling the refreshing mist of the water sprinkle upon you. Then make your way to a local school that was rebuilt as an initiative of the African Wildlife Foundation’s Classroom Africa program. Next you will journey to Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park where rhinoceros were reintroduced as a part of an African Wildlife Foundation project. Hop into your 4×4 and embark on a safari before you will try to spot the endangered white elephant while on foot. After a day full of discoveries, you will take part in a festive dinner hosted by Aunt Flatter, a Zimbabwe local with decades of wisdom on the country. This unforgettable woman and her stories will surely be one of the highlights of your trip.
The following day, you will fly to Hwange National Park where you will head to your camp and have some time to walk the grounds. During your stay, you will take part in many different activities such as bush walks and game drives, and you will have the opportunity to meet with Sharon Stead, who founded the Mother Africa Trust which supports many projects throughout Zimbabwe.
The next stop on your safari will be Lake Kariba, which is the world’s largest man-made lake. While at your next camp, you will enjoy exclusive sundowners, private game drives, and intimate discussions with several women leaders from the African Wildlife Foundation. You will also bask in a glowing sunset during a late-day cruise on the waters of this spectacular lake.
End your journey in Mana Pools National Park, where you will fly following your stay at Lake Kariba. At Mana Pools, you will have the chance to take part in game viewing on foot, on the water, and from safari vehicles. Be on the lookout for elephant, leopard, hyena, and cheetah – oh my! Enjoy discussions with AdventureWomen owner, Judi Wineland, and AWF Director Simon Muchatibaya during your stay.
