The Real World Conservation Trust (formerly Real Africa Trust) works with leading conservation organisations to raise awareness as well as raising funds for specific projects. Partners include Save the Elephants, Save the Rhino, The Sheldrick Trust, Rhino Conservation Botswana and Animals saving Animals. You can find out more on our Conservation pages. On behalf of every client travelling, Real Africa makes a donation to the Trust. Our aim is to raise awareness about the plight of endangered species and to promote sustainable, socially responsible travel which benefits the wildlife and communities you choose to visit. The Trust's current campaign, Explorers against Extinction has successfully raised enough money to fund a brand new canine unit for RCB. Two pups were trained with Animals saving Animals and deployed to Botswana in summer 2018 as rhino protection dogs. Visit our News and Conservation pages for more info! African Bush Camps runs its own charitable Foundation which you contribute to when booking a stay with them. Water and energy are precious resources that are too often in short supply in arid Africa. The Foundation seeks to assist in putting the best environmental methods into practice in each African Bush Camps safari camp, from solar-powered waterholes to basic energy conservation programmes. Outside the camps, they work with the surrounding communities to implement human-wildlife conflict mitigation techniques and work with both elders and children to learn and understand innovative ways to conserve resources whilst implementing sustainable land-use practices.

Safari Itinerary

DAY 1 - 3

Hwange National Park
On arrival at Victoria Falls Airport you will transfer to your next flight to Hwange Manga Airstrip. On arrival in Hwange you will be met and transferred to Somalisa Camp. Activities over the next few days include guided bush walks accompanied by qualified and professional guides as well as game drives, spot lighting and game viewing from hides. Guests can expect to see elephant, kudu and sable antelope, zebra, wildebeest, gemsbok, the rare and endangered roan antelope, buffalo, giraffe, white rhino, lion, leopard, hyena, and other wildlife species. Hwange National Park: A haven for over 100 mammals and 400 bird species, the park protects populations of all of Zimbabwe’s endangered species, elephants numbering in excess of 20,000 (up from around 4,000 when the park was proclaimed), and what is thought to be one of the largest populations of African wild dog left in the world. Large prides of lion and buffalo are frequently seen here and you have a good chance of spotting leopard and rhino in addition to cheetah and spotted hyena. The wild and woolly brown hyena also occurs here and is something of a rarity.

DAY 4 - 5

Victoria Falls
On arrival at Victoria Falls International Airport you will be met and they will transfer you to the Zimbabwe/Zambia border then onto Thorntree River Lodge. Most visitors come to see the falls, a UNESCO World Heritage site and the world’s largest curtain of falling water. There are a host of clearly marked and well-kept paths that wind through towering forests, and from the Zambian side of the falls, visitors can cross Knife-edge Bridge for spectacular views of the main falls. Outdoor adventurists can make the steep descent into the Boiling Pot and watch white-water rafters board for a wild ride on the Zambezi River. While the waterfalls are certainly a highlight of the national park, there’s also an entire section dedicated to wildlife-spotting. Depending on the time of year, it’s possible to spot zebras, giraffes, antelope, warthogs, many species of birds and rare rhinos. The national park also serves as an important point for elephants to cross the Zambezi River, so they’re often sighted as well.

DAY 6 - 8

Linyanti, Chobe National Park
Today you will be transferred by road to Kasane where you will then fly to Linyanti in the Chobe Region of Botswana. On arrival at the airstrip you will be met and transferred to Linyanti Bush Camp. You will arrive in time for lunch or tea and an afternoon game drive. You will spend the next few days doing two game drives a day with your expert guides. The Kwando-Linyanti river system is home to a series of private game reserves, known for their exotic animal species and luxury safari options. An abundance of wildlife roams freely between the woodland habitats, ancient floodplains and forests that make up these lush, unfenced reserves. The big game in this area increases dramatically during the dry season when the area hosts large herds of impala, blue wildebeest, giraffe and buffalo as well as the world’s highest density of elephant. Several packs of wild dog are found in the area and lion, leopard and cheetah are frequently sighted. Night drives allow for the discovery of nocturnal creatures such as civets, genets, honey badgers and spring hares. This vast, untamed wilderness is the perfect location for these seeking a unique African adventure in an exclusive and remote big game habitat.
