Using a wide-ranging network of uniquely qualified experts, including researchers, conservation scientists and anti-poaching units, experience the heartland of Africa – the Mara and the Serengeti – through the lens of the crucial conservation efforts being undertaken.

Travelling through these intricate ecosystems, you will come to understand how animal species and local populations interact. Alongside experts in their field, assist in pivotal work by tracking collared elephants to understand how their migratory patterns are shifting.

Experience first-hand the emotional connection that researchers develop with the cheetahs and aid world class habitat restoration programmes to protect this magnificent species. Spend time learning the ways in which rangers battle to protect vast swathes of pristine bush from invading poachers and how this illegal industry threatens Africa’s wildlife.

Finally, witness the incredible on-going conservation work being done to protect the graceful but severely endangered wild dog. Pelorus will gain exclusive access to this specialist programme run by naturalists, which is a rare privilege indeed.

* Prices depend on level of experiences and accommodation. This is based on 2 adults and 2 children travelling for 7 nights excluding international flights.
