Geographic Expeditions is debuting its first women-only adventure, choosing Namibia as its focus thanks to the country’s leadership in Africa in terms of gender equality. This is an opportunity to explore the vast landscapes of Namibia in a small women-only group tour that will include safari drives, nature treks and scenic flights, and encounters with local female artisans, entrepreneurs, conservationists, mothers and teachers. The first voyage begins on Sept. 1, 2024.
More on Geographic Expeditions’ Luxury Tour
This luxury expedition is 13 days long and will take your clients across Namibia’s sand dunes and savannahs with stops to meet some of the women shaping this country. This is no ordinary getaway, as Geographic Expeditions describes it as “a life-altering experience, and doing so in the company of like-minded adventurers amplifies the transformative journey, leaving a deep and lasting impression.”
Along the way, your clients will hop on rovers for game drives with the woman founder of the AfriCat Foundation to search for leopards in the savannah, chat with craftswomen and female entrepreneurs in Windhoek and Sossusvlei and even walk the plains with a ranger from the Save the Rhino Trust who will lead them through the habitat of the endangered black rhino.
At the AfriCat Foundation, clients will also have the opportunity to go behind the scenes with their veterinary staff, who specialize in caring for large predators. They’ll also venture out to discover the UNESCO-listed Twyfelfontein petroglyphs and the Great Namib Sand Sea, safari in the wildlife-rich Etosha National Park, fly over the scenic Skeleton Coast’s sand dunes and shipwrecks, marvel at the illustrative embroidery by the women at Penduka Development Trust and more.
