If you are particularly interested in one species, or would like to find out more about conservation and tracking, we can organise a safari with a wildlife specialist, zoologist, conservationist or researcher, where you can spend your safari learning in depth the ways of the wildlife in Africa. You can take a day to do this, or even a week, whichever suits you. Bird watching and big cat safaris are incredibly interesting, as are elephant research projects.

Current Research Projects Which You Can Get Involved With…..
Please bare in mind that almost all camps and lodges will have community development projects which you are more than welcome to take part in. If you have a particular animal which you would like to study in more detail, just let us know and we’ll hook you up with the resident conservationist or specialist. We simply list a few of our favourites below:
