What is an ‘educational vacation’?

An educational vacation is a unique way of pursuing your interests – or acquiring new ones – whilst allowing you to take home not only memories and photographs but fresh information and a different way of looking at the world.

We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.”
(T S Elliot) 

Why take an ‘educational vacation’

For decades people have come to Africa to experience her splendour and the majesty of her wildlife. Now a new generation of traveler is reaching her shores in search of more than time spent simply observing.

Our experiences, designed for 21st Century adventurers, are Educational, Enlightening and perhaps most importantly of all life Enriching.

A combined knowledge of the tourism, guiding and nature training sectors has enabled us to create encounters that will allow you to get the dust of Africa on your feet and ….“Yamukela umoya we-Afrika” (embrace the spirit of Africa)


Intibane Camp! Thanda Safari (pictured above) is our camp. Nestled between bush and beach it is located on a 14,500ha Big Five Reserve in the heart of Zululand. Accommodation is in rustic yet comfortable thatched chalets with a fan, air conditioner and en suite bathroom.

“A week in the wild”

Our first experience for 2018 offers you a week in which you will learn about South Africa’s amazing flora and fauna; find out how to read the ‘bush newspaper’; and allow us to share with you the wonders of an unpolluted night sky. Discover how to make a toothbrush from a magic guarri tree, what to do when you need to light a fire and have forgotten your matches, which fruits to eat and which to avoid and how to find direction using the indicators that nature gives us. Then sip on a cold sundowner as the day fades, through brilliant reds and pinks into inky blackness.
