Learn bushman skills from the San people of the Kalahari

4 days

Based in the Kalahari Desert, you get to learn a host of traditional practices such as cooking, tracking wildlife, finding water, and building shelter. All of this is taught by San bushmen who are your guides. You camp under the stars each night and finish your trek with a friendly competition to show what you've learned.

Rest & Relaxation

Chobe National Park Safari

Game drives and boat cruises allow you to see Botswana's big game in their natural habitats, and you have the freedom to decide which safari package you wish to complete as a team.

Undoubtedly one of the most famous safari parks in the world, Chobe in northern Botswana is easy to fit into an itinerary and well worth the time.

Taking inspiration and guidance from the energy of the project host herself, teams get involved in helping to improve the lives of local children by providing funding and manpower on a range of projects, such as the renovation of nearby nurseries and orphanages.

Community development projects

Based in orphanages, schools and even national parks, Botswana's project portfolio allows teams to mix soft and hard skills, and interact with their host community at the same time as contributing towards development goals.

Conservation projects

Projects in Botswana also focus on conservation.
