Discover a love of the wildlife and understand how you can protect them.  Time to let your guard down and totally de-stress.  Take time in quietude to reconnect.  You will be completely blown away by the deep emotional connections made with nature, the animals, with yourself and others through this incredible journey.  

Smell the African bush.  Hear the different and unique sounds of Africa.  Let your heart beat to the rhythm of the African drum.

It may be difficult to understand in our busy lives, that we are in the midst of the 6th mass extinction, but you can make an impact, NOW.  Most people experience a life lasting shift in perception on our unique wildlife adventure.

Martin Dell - your personal Wildlife Facilitator

My own personal journey in my love for wildlife and conservation began over 40 years ago when I first visited the Kruger National Park in South Africa. I was immediately hooked and overwhelmed by the sights, sounds, smell and the magic of the African bush.

I have had the pleasure and privilege to have visited many private and National Game Reserves all over Southern Africa and it is my wish to share my knowledge and experiences with you that will dramatically shift you in the most profound way, from this once in a lifetime guided experience.

It is in nature where I find my stillness in my connection to the Earth and the animals. With this incredible feeling of stillness and deep connection (away from the daily stresses of our fast paced and high-tech world), I am at complete peace and it is here where I am able to reconnect with myself.

By treating yourself to this life-changing experience, you will help save our Rhino's by contributing to the Rhino orphanage and rehabilitation centre.

What you can look forward to on your adventure :

Private transfer from Durban's King Shaka International airport to a 5 star luxury hotel in Umhlanga for your 1st night. 

Private transfer to the lodge with an early start on day 2. Here you will enjoy the beauty of the east coast of Kwa-Zulu Natal with your knowledgeable facilitator.

 

5 nights luxurious stay in a one-of-a-kind safari lodge in a Private 'Big 5' Game Reserve. 

Each day your magical experience will begin with an early morning game drive (lasting approximately 3 hours) with your experienced game ranger, stopping for coffee, tea or hot chocolate in the wilderness with breath-taking views.

 

A delicious full English Breakfast is served after every early morning game drive. After breakfast, enjoy exploring the lodge or simply enjoy some leisure time by the pool to reflect, before lunch. 

Your afternoon game drive will begin before sunset, where your experienced game ranger will take you on another exciting drive, tracking the wildlife. Just before sunset, the vehicle will stop for a special safari tradition, the "Sundowner". As the sun sets, take a moment to get off the vehicle and drink in the air, sights and sounds of nature.

 

A hearty three course dinner awaits you, weather permitting, under the stars around the campfire. Enjoy this special time and relax underneath the African skies.

Your Night Ride: Enjoy the African Bush by night. One of the highlights of your experience will be adventuring through wilderness with your experienced game ranger after dinner for a completely different experience which lasts approximately 2 hours. Here we hope to see those beautiful nocturnal animals that only come out after dark.

 

Experience a once in a lifetime Wild African Elephant Encounter with very experienced rangers. Get up close with Africa's Giants. This is truly breath-taking and a memory you will never forget.

Another incredible experience is a Rhino Dehorning:

Join our wildlife management team and our veterinarian on this unique and amazing experience. Dehorning is used as an effective method to deter rhino poaching. You will get hands-on experience participating in collecting DNA samples and assist with recording important information. This is a unique opportunity to get up close to a wild rhino whilst contributing to the protection of the species. I always leave this event feeling quite emotional and with a deep connection to this incredible animal. 

ALL of this from ONLY $11,777NZ per person!

Nature once determined how we survived, now we determine how nature survives.  The natural world is not just nice to have, it fundamentally impacts on the survival of each and everyone of us.  Impact of our ever growing population and our consumption, now directly threatens our own future.  96% of the mass of mammals on earth today, are us and the livestock we have domesticated.  Only 4% is wildlife.  70% of all birds on our earth today are domesticated poultry.  People and nature need to survive through protecting nature. (extracts from Sir David Attenborough - Our Planet).

The future will belong to the nature-smart, those individuals, families, businesses and political leaders who develop a deeper understanding of the transformative power of the natural world and who balance the virtual with the real. The more high-tech we become, the more nature we need.  By tapping into the restorative powers of nature, we can promote mental and physical health and wellness; build smarter and more sustainable businesses, communities and economies; and ultimately strengthen human bonds. (extract from Richard Louv)
