On this #WorldRhinoDay today, we reflect on the tragic fact that there are approximately 27 000 rhino left on Earth – a figure that was once close to a million at the beginning of the 19th century.

The challenge to conserve these populations and reintroduce more to other areas is immense – but we see this challenge as one of our reasons to believe in the work that we do.

We have been involved in rhino conservation for more than 20 years and have assisted with both white and black rhino introductions in six African countries (Zimbabwe, Namibia, Malawi, Botswana, South Africa and Zambia). How we do this depends on the country, the people and the local conditions.

Today we celebrate these magnificent animals by sharing the highlights of the rhino conservation projects that we run in Namibia, Botswana and Zambia.

Mary-Anne Van Der Byl spent time in Toka Leya's tree nursery seeing first-hand the results of nursery manager John Yombwe's passion and commitment. In the video he elaborates on the wonderful work he does here.

Mary-Anne then had the privilege of planting a red milkwood sapling - which she has named 'mulanfu', meaning 'tall'.

Read her inspiring post!
Mary-Anne enjoys a back-of-house tour at Toka Leya. Her highlight? Planting a tree! Find out why...

The extra special at Shumba Camp is a free flight* in the hot air balloon. Taking off at dawn in the almost still air and skimming over the plains to see the animals from a very different perspective.

This is the time of year to see the Victoria Falls in all their geological splendour!

#Zambia #safari #Livingstone #VictoriaFalls


As the Zambezi River commences its seasonal drop in water levels, everyone starts to wonder what the water levels are like going over the Victoria Falls...

The name of our latest ecotourism endeavour – Bisate Lodge in Rwanda – means ‘pieces’ in Kinyarwanda and describes the eroded nature of the volcanic cone on which the Lodge will be located. It's all about location and luxury – but what makes it different from all the other gorilla trekking experiences in this extraordinary country?

What to do on a 24-hour stopover at Toka Leya...

No trip to Toka Leya in Zambia is complete without dropping in on the white rhino population that is so lovingly taken care of by ZAWA (Zambia Wildlife Authority) scouts.

"Epic Etosha"

As I am preparing slowly but surely to return to Etosha in a little over a month's time, here's an image I captured there a couple of years ago. The low angle perspective really helps emphasise the size of this elephant eh?

As the sun and hot-air balloon rise above the waking wilderness of the Busanga Plains, another day prepares to deliver its surprises.

This is a free activity for guests who stay three or more nights at our camps!

"The Machine" is a formidable huntress, missing both her left canines! Guest Don Hunter shared even more amazing pics from the Busanga Plains, along with this comment: "This amazing "mini-Okavango" floods and dries every year and teems with puku and red lechwe - an exceptional wilderness area. The incredible concentration of fish eagles, grey crowned cranes and wattled cranes and fish as the water recedes." http://www.wilderness-safaris.com/blog/safari-albums#gallery-2027_Busanga+Plains

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.
