Expedition Highlights

  • Visit remote, varied, and pristine habitats to observe nature operating as it has since time immemorial and largely undisturbed by man. 
  • Explore the winding channels of Botswana’s Okavango Delta by mokoro (dugout canoe) in search of the many water-adapted plant and animal species.
  • Photograph the dunes of the Namib Desert, a surrealistic landscape of massive ochre-hued dunes canopied by indigo skies. 
  • Search for abundant wildlife in Zambia’s South Luangwa National Park—famous for its leopards—where you will find the endemic Thornicroft’s giraffe, among many other game animals.
