You can trek into remote areas and spend time with indigenous communities. You could use blowpipes with the Penan in the heart of the Borneo jungle, observe a rare spiritual dance with the Baining people of Papua New Guinea, or ride a camel with the Berbers deep among the sand dunes and deserts of southern Morocco.  You can go to China to study the pandas and the Asiatic Black Bear, go skiing in Japan, or gorilla trekking in Rwanda.  Baobab can create an exploration specifically dedicated to your taste for adventure and turn your dreams into reality.

Kim Houk recently enjoyed such an experience. She told us the following: “I’ve done a bit of traveling (Ireland, England, a few Caribbean cruises) but had never taken an excursion trip prior to the “Dian Fossey and the Big 5” through Baobab Expeditions.  I chose this trip because I had followed and been a contributor to many of the wildlife conservation organizations listed in the itinerary. One word to describe this excursion was ‘epic’.  Not only was this a first-class safari where I trekked gorillas and saw the most amazing wild animals I had only seen in nature TV shows, I met many prominent individuals who have been at the forefront of animal research and conservation.  One of the highlights was meeting one of my heroes, Dame Daphne Sheldrick, and having the opportunity to spend quality, private time with the baby elephant orphans both at the nursery in Nairobi and the Voi Stockades.  Not only was I able to feed the babies but I gained a greater depth of knowledge of elephant behavior and witnessed the strong, trusting relationships they have with their caregivers.  To anyone contemplating a trip to Africa I’d recommend to JUST DO IT!  Baobab Expeditions provided first-class accommodations at every destination and extremely memorable experiences with Clare Richardson and Lynne Leakey as our guides.”

We also reached out to Richard Pfaffli, the Founder and CEO of Baobab Expeditions, who is passionate about the opportunities his inspirational journeys provide to travelers who want to support wildlife conservation and local communities in remote spots around the world.  He said, “Our partnerships with organizations such as the Dian Fossey International Gorilla Fund, the Africat Foundation, Friends of Conservation, Born Free, and others, enable us to offer our clients an ‘inside track’ and a greater in-depth experience on our tours than most companies are able to provide.  We donate funds from every booking made to one of these organizations.  It is a win-win situation.” So, while you are having a great time in your learning vacation, you’re supporting wildlife conservation and local community enterprises.
