Your Kalahari Conservation Safari Basecamp: Comfort in the Heart of Wilderness

Gary and Edyta at Working with Wildlife

Working with Wildlife Founders – Edyta and Gary

We founded Working with Wildlife in 2016 because we believe that Africa’s wildlife doesn’t need more passive observers – it needs advocates and ambassadors. We believe that tourism needs to take a more active stance in wildlife conservation, and that the best way to make someone care is to let them be a part of the solution.

With us, you won’t just see wild animals from afar; you’ll be part of their story. You’ll track endangered species, gather crucial data, and witness firsthand the challenges they face. This isn’t armchair conservation; it’s getting your hands dirty in the Kalahari sand for a cause. The traditional safari ideal – of pristine wilderness, untouched by reality – is a dangerous illusion.

We’re not interested in selling you a fantasy. We want to show you the truth, the beauty and the struggle, because that’s what ignites change. Our safaris aren’t just a once-in-a-lifetime experience; they’re a catalyst. We want you to leave not just with incredible photos, but with a burning desire to make a meaningful difference for Africa’s incredible and unique wildlife.
