Open Heart Safari to Zambia: July 18-31, 2015
Optional extension to Victoria Falls and Botswana: July 31-August 4
Zambia offers some of the greatest density and variety of wildlife in the world, far from the crowds of tourists you’ll see on most safaris. We visit remote natural areas, accompanied by highly trained guides, with special opportunities to track lions and leopards on foot; float by hippos, crocodiles and elephants on a small boat; and get close views of animals hunting by night. In addition we get to stay in a traditional local village, help facilitate youth activities in a poor urban neighborhood, and meet inspiring activists for conservation and social change.
Open Heart Safari seeks to offer something different from conventional safaris. We approach the magnificent animals and their habitats in a spirit of reverence, and approach the people and their culture with respect and interest. We do it all in a small group, opening to the incredible experience with frequent short simple meditation and yoga, and regularly processing our experiences together in sharing circles. And we have fun.
