National Geographic Magazine's WildCam Africa


Experience WildCam Africa—Join us on a National Geographic Expedition to Africa in 2007-2008

Inspired by you, our WildCam fans and loyal community members, the WildCam program and National Geographic Expeditions have partnered to develop two travel opportunities for you to experience WildCam Africa.

WildCam Africa Expedition in 2008

The WildCam program and National Geographic Expeditions have developed a unique new WildCam Africa Expedition in the summer of 2008. This specially-crafted National Geographic Expedition will be based at Mashatu Game Reserve, Botswana, home to seven of Africa's giants—the elephant, giraffe, eland, ostrich, kori bustard, lion, and the baobab tree. An active day-by-day itinerary will include morning and afternoon game drives accompanied by expert guides, bush walks, a mountain biking safari, and an evening under the stars in a kgotla open-air boma. The expedition will be developed together with community members, as well as National Geographic's local partners operating WildCam Africa. Travelers will be accompanied by a National Geographic Expert, and groups will be limited in size. A full itinerary will be online this summer, so stay tuned!
