Watoto go Wild

Before we all at Nomad start getting ready for the end of year busyness and Christmas season, we arranged a whole handful of student safaris from nearly all our Nomad camps.

From Kuro the kids had a great time spotting elephants and enjoying the last of the dry season and the game viewing in Tarangire.

Students in the south enjoyed an adventurous boat trip from Sand Rivers, as well as game-drives and an educational tour around camp.

And in the West a group of thirty students had the wonderful opportunity to go chimp-trekking with our expert primatology guides, we well as a try on a kayak.

Not to mention a 'stakeholders safari' from Katavi, collaborating with our conservation partners LCMO on getting key people from around the villages on a safari.

As well as being a fabulously fun day out for students, these trips also act as a way of fostering an appreciation and understanding of wildlife around, lay the foundations for the future generation to have a better relationship with wildlife who otherwise come into conflict with people in villages on the periphery, engage students in conservation lessons in the bush and career awareness in camps, as well encouraging and rewarding children for their hard work and effort at school.
