Saving The World - One Black Rhino At A time In June 2015, we are thrilled to be able to say, we did it. Again. In a humbling collaboration of the private and public sector, governments and private individuals, along with pure determination, grit, negotiation and commitment, the largest cross-border move of black rhino ever was completed. Map Ives, Botswana’s #1 rhino conservationist, takes a breather to update us on the project's recent successes…http://www.wilderness-safaris.com/blog/posts/saving-the-world-one-black-rhino-at-a-time

Serra Cafema's local Himba ladies had a lovely surprise this month when one of the Serra Cafema guests who visited their little village decided to donate a goat to the villagers. As all of their livestock is kept in the mountains where more grazing is found, this was a real treat for them.

African Wild Dogs / Painted Dogs
Kruger National Park, South Africa

I was fortunate to spend time with a den of 17 Painted Dog puppies on our recent Kruger visit - it was so special to see the interaction and social structure of these complex and endagered predators up close...

How does an elephant descend a sandy slope? Have you read +Susan Portnoy's description of Papa G's hilarious attempts?  http://theinsatiabletraveler.com/2015/05/22/postcard-how-does-an-elephant-walk-down-a-sandy-hill-in-namibia-he-doesnt/

"Papa G tested the edge, placing his large round front foot in the sand. It instantly fell away resulting in a miniature avalanche spilling down the hill. Hmmm.. that didn’t look too promising. He moved 20 feet to the left where the incline was a tad less formidable and began again. This time the border held and he walked his front feet down the slope until he was splayed in a hilarious elephant version of downward facing dog. Ever so slowly the sand began to collapse beneath his weight, moving his front feet forward until he was on his knees and then with the grace of a dancer he slid down the embankment."

"I was rescued by a tiny, bolshie little striped kingfisher, by far not the most famous, nor the most gregarious (woodlands or the pied) or most beautifully coloured (malachite) of the Delta kingfishers. But to me these will forever be my favourites… my tiny striped blue, white and brown knight!"

Our journeys change lives - helping Africa, its wildlife and its people through ecotourism and our conservation and community projects
Introduction

Wilderness Safaris offers luxury safari experiences in nine African countries, promoting ecotourism and conservation at the same time.

A tour operator and destination management company dedicated to responsible tourism in Africa, its travel divisions – Wilderness Safaris, Wilderness Touring, Wilderness Collection and Wilderness Air – operate a portfolio of some 70 lodges, camps and safaris in nine countries: Botswana, Congo (Brazzaville), Kenya, Namibia, Malawi, South Africa, Zambia, Zimbabwe and the Seychelles.

Wilderness Safaris’ wildlife, marine and cultural safaris in remote, pristine wilderness destinations are specialised, explorative and fun. Wilderness offers guests private access to over eight million acres (three million hectares) of Africa’s finest wildlife reserves, while remaining fiercely committed to protecting the planet’s precious natural and cultural resources.

This Wilderness vision is encapsulated by its 4Cs concept, namely Conservation, Community, Culture and Commerce.
