Botswana Exploration - Great Wilderness Journey

4Cs Projects - Great Wilderness Journey

The camps that you stay in while on the Great Wilderness Journey are intimately involved in projects that support the principles of the 4Cs.

Toka Leya has a number of systems in place that aim to rehabilitate indigenous flora in the area. This includes a greenhouse and nursery project to grow seedlings, an environmentally friendly waste-water treatment plant and a worm farm. Read more: Toka Leya Green Camp Systems

Linyanti Conservation Projects

The Linyanti Concession works closely with local government bodies to ensure the conservation of wildlife in the area. It carries out dedicated conservation and research focused on species on the IUCN Red List such as African wild dog, elephant, lion and roan antelope.

The Elephant Challenge, Linyanti

Perhaps the most topical issue for Botswana is its very large elephant population and the possible impact on vegetation and other animal species. As a result we have facilitated and partially funded two MSc studies researching this challenge.

Community Partnership, Gomoti

Gomoti Tented Camp is part of a community partnership between Wilderness Safaris and the SankuyoKhwai Community represented. This partnership aims at bringing the benefits of ecotourism to the communities that live alongside conservation areas.

Tubu Joint Management Committee, Jao

Jao Concession holders and the University of Botswana (under the auspices of the Biokavango Project) launched a committee to reduce conflict between the community and the Jao Concession – specifically with regard to curbing poaching and over-fishing.
