Walk of Ancient Wisdom Across the Makgadikgadi Pans, Botswana

Seeking inspiration on where to go for your next travel adventure? Seize the moment and embark on a journey like no other with Explorations Company. This June, the luxury safari and adventure specialists will be offering a single group of up to eight friends or family the opportunity to embark on an exclusive seven day walking safari with Botswana’s San Bushmen.

Guided by two of the most sought-after private guides in Africa, Ralph Bousfield and Aleksandra Orbeck-Nilsen, this incredible safari combines total immersion in the Kalahari with unparalleled access to the rich cultural heritage of the San people who have lived in harmony with the natural world for thousands of years.

As you walk across the expansive salt pans, your guides will share their expert knowledge of the land and its inhabitants, from the smallest insects to the mighty elephants that roam the area. You’ll walk with the Bushmen and see the environment through their eyes. From watching the men prepare bows, arrows and quivers, and spending time with the women making beads from ostrich eggs to witnessing the trance dance of the San People, you’ll gain a full insight into this fascinating community. 

Nights are spent in comfortable camps and there are opportunities for evening game drives to look for nocturnal inhabitants such as aardvark, bat-eared foxes, porcupine and honey badgers. There’s even the possibility of encountering a black-maned Kalahari lion, if you’re lucky. 

This journey is not just about sightseeing and learning but also about making a difference. By embarking on this adventure, you will be helping to support the Sans people and their sustainable living initiatives, as well as wildlife conservation efforts in the area. This is a once-in-a-lifetime adventure not to be missed.
