Trek through the wilderness of Africa to track rhinos, elephants, and other animals. Accompanied by an expert wildlife guide, you will observe and note the location of every animal you see. You may also have an opportunity to go on a night drive with research staff during the two weeks, which offers a great chance to see nocturnal animals out and about. On your recreational day, you could take a trip to Simangaliso Wetland Park, possibly join a boat tour to look for hippos, crocodiles, and birds and experience the St. Lucia Estuary, snorkel and swim at the beach and lunch at a local restaurant, or stay in camp and relax.
You also may visit a school on one afternoon, in a poor, rural area that has struggled over the years to receive support. Many of the children attending the school have been orphaned by HIV/AIDS. If you would like to visit the school and see what a community effort can achieve, the staff will gladly arrange a visit.
