Meet John Kahekwa tuskawards.com/john-kahelwa/
It is a testament to his dedication to these amazing animals that he has experienced a growth of 13% of the population since 1993. There has been incredible turmoil in this area during this time and John and his family have remained steadfast in working with the communities to help protect these amazing animals. John and his team have obvious mutual love and respect for these magnificent close relatives of ours.
This is an intrepid trip hosted by John and his family.
A real bucket list item.
South Africa – Zimbabwe
24th July to 9th August 2020
Beginning in the world renowned Kruger Park, South Africa we spend three days driving the length of the park where we should see an extremely wide range of Africans birds and animals, then we head into the remoteness of Gonorazhou game Reserve in southern Zimbabwe.
The abundance of wildlife here soon becomes obvious although it is the landscape that will take your breath away. It seems like a journey back in time especially given there is no cellphone coverage. Leaving the majesty and solitude behind we head to the Mountains of Chimanimani for hiking and birding. This unique area is the water reservoir of both Mozambique and Zimbabwe. Previous travellers have loved the exercise options and the chance to spend quality time with the local guides that we are helping finance into sustainable wildlife careers.
Following this we drive up to the incredible Mana Pools Reserve one of the most picturesque and unique game reserves on the banks of the mighty Zambesi.
Namibia – Botswana
17th September to 4th October 2020
The very best place to start your African adventures. This trip has it all without being too intense. Ideal for first time visitors to Africa.
We begin with Namibia's incredible scenery, the vastness of the desert landscape, amazing night skies, warm and friendly people, wildlife and end in the riverine area of the Kavango, on the last night enjoying, what we believe is, the best River cruise in the world on the Chobe river. The trip builds up from Sossusvlei Sand dunes, desert landscape to big game with plenty of off road driving.
