Vultures Breeding Program, Shamwari Reserve, South Africa

On the 10-day South Africa’s Natural Wonders safari, clients will discover the wildlife kingdom of Shamwari Private Game Reserve with seven lodges and three rehabilitation and education facilities. The reserve is not only iconic as a safari destination, but also famous for successful conservation initiatives.

Vultures play a crucial role in maintaining a healthy and well-balanced ecosystem. However, they encounter numerous human-made threats with some populations having severely decreased by over 90% in the past 30 years with several species facing possible extinction. In partnership with Vulpro, an organization whose mission is protecting African vultures through collaboration and innovation in South Africa, the Vulture Breeding Program at Shamwari Centre opened on January 23, 2024 as part of the Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre experience. As Africa’s largest vulture relocation, 160 Cape and African White-backed vultures settled into their new home at Shamwari. Guests can visit the centre during their stay.

Cheetah Conservation, Namibia

On the 10-day, Namibia Luxury Train Journey, clients will board the luxurious Rovos Rail, exploring stunning vistas while stopping in Kimberley and Fish River Canyon – second in size to the Grand Canyon. They will embark on safari experiences in Nambia's Sossusvlei and encounter Etosha National Park’s incredible wildlife and one of the most accessible game reserves in Southern Africa. Guests will observe giraffe, lion, elephant, lion, leopard and the black rhino in their natural environment with numerous waterholes. They will also visit the Cheetah Conservation Fund (CCF)’s Research and Education Centre. CCF is an international non-profit organization whose mission is to save the cheetah and its ecosystem. In the past century, 90% of the cheetah population has declined worldwide. The centre is located near the city of Ojiwarongo which overlooks the scenic Waterberg Plateau.
