Safari company, African Bush Camps, has expanded its expedition offering, which it says will appeal to the millennial market who enjoy getting close to nature.
The company will open its Migration Expeditions in Nxai Pan National Park in Botswana this month.
Each year, Botswana’s zebras journey between the Okavango Delta and Makgadikgadi Pans in search of fresh grazing in what is known as the second-largest zebra migration in the world.
Nxai Pan National Park is one of the best places to experience the migration, which travels from Namibia to the Nxai Pan area, covering over 1 000 kilometres.
“Migrations are essential for the ecosystems to avoid over-grazing, and they ensure food sources are optimally used,” explains Public Relations specialist for African Bush Camps, Gemma Heyns.
She says predators also benefit, as they follow the zebras and other herbivores and prey on the weak and younger herd members.
The Nxai Pan camp consists of six canvas tents set on low decks with bucket showers and two main tented areas consisting of lounge and dining areas.
Activities include morning and afternoon game drives inside the park and visits to the famous Baines’ Baobabs – a cluster of baobabs that have been around for millennia were discovered by explorers Thomas Baines and John Chapman in 1862 when trekking across Botswana in search of Victoria Falls.
