Join us on this small-group safari across Namibia’s sand dunes and savannah as we meet the women shaping Africa’s most gender-egalitarian country. Embark on exhilarating game drives with the founder of the AfriCat Foundation, connect with craftswomen and female entrepreneurs in Windhoek and Sossusvlei, and follow an exceptional ranger as she leads you through the habitat of endangered black rhino.
Witnessing such extraordinary realms, guided by change-making women who are protecting and reshaping their country, is a life-altering experience, and doing so in the company of like-minded adventurers amplifies the transformative journey, leaving a deep and lasting impression.
It’s incredibly inspiring to be in the company of Namibia’s bold women, and to have those special encounters be shared with other like-minded, adventurous, and thoughtful women. The camaraderie and connection that results, while adventuring through one of the world’s most remarkable places, is more than I ever dreamed of.Katia K.
