Journey with us to South Africa, where you will have firsthand immersion in Humane Society International’s world-renowned immunocontraception program which is changing the landscape for elephant conservation. You will also have the opportunity to join our biologists as they fit a GPS satellite research collar on an elephant in the field.
During this first-class journey, you will not only be surrounded by South Africa’s legendary wildlife, but you will enjoy the stunning and newly-offered Garonga MCH Camp.
