Sanctuary Botswana Explorers against Extinction Safari

Visit majestic Victoria Falls, staying at a wonderful river lodge on the banks of the Zambezi and experience the thrill of walking, boating and big game 4x4 safari, visiting both the Moremi Game Reserve in the Okavango and Chobe National Park. You have the chance to learn about the rhino's return to the Okavango during your stay at Chief's Camp where a rhino monitoring team is based.

Via the Sanctuary Retreats Philanthropy programme your stay will help to contribute to Rhino Conservation Botswana - a project to translocate 20 rhino, both black and white, from South Africa into the Moremi Reserve in Botswana where they will be safer from poachers. In addition, Real Africa will donate the net profit from this safari to the Real Africa Trust's Explorers against Extinction campaign. The campaign has already successfully raised enough funds for two rhino protection dogs for RCB. The pups are just going through their first stage of training with ASA - we hope they will be ready for deployment to Botswana in summer 2018. You can find out more on our Conservation pages.
