What People Are Saying About Our Conservation Safari

Our guests are our top priority, and we’re dedicated to providing the best possible conservation safari imaginable. Here’s what a few of our past guests have to say about us.

I had the privilege of spending time with Edyta and Gary at “Working with Wildlife” in the heart of the Kalahari Desert within the !Khamab Reserve. It was an experience that transcended mere tourism. This camp is not your typical safari lodge. It’s a place where conservation takes center stage and where the team is committed to preserving the delicate balance of this unique African ecosystem.

The hosts are nothing short of extraordinary. Their passion for wildlife and conservation is contagious. They made us feel at home and (almost) like family.

“Working with Wildlife” is a gateway to understanding, respect, and experience wilderness in a remote and extraordinary reserve. If you’re seeking an authentic safari experience that leaves a positive footprint, look no further !!!

I would particularity recommend this camp for families with kids as the ability to participate in conservation efforts makes the experience a lot more interesting and rewarding.

Wow, Working With Wildlife makes dreams come true! What a magical place in the middle of nowhere. Gary and Edyta made a beautiful camp in the Kalahari where you feel welcome from the first minute you arrive. The tents have everything you need, and more. The food that Edyta creates is delicious (and more than you need ;-)). And the knowledge that Gary shares is more than you ever can remember.

We had game drives where we followed 3 beautiful male lions and ended up with a female lion with her 4 curious cubs around the game viewer.

We had lunch while 4 cheetah’s were on the hunt for their lunch just in front of us. The highlight of our 1 week stay in the camp was the release of a big elephant bull who was relocated from another reserve. This is something I will always remember. It was so special.
If you ever wanna be close to nature in a big 5 reserve, want to help with nature conservation and learn a lot: don’t hesitate and book your stay at Working with Wildlife. You won’t regret it.

– Helga Leenstra

A truly unforgettable experience that leaves you planning your return! It truly warms my heart to know that there is a vast space in the Kalahari that is relatively untouched by humans and where a handful of truly amazing people take such care to keep it that way.

I had the most amazing adventure when I got to finally get a taste of what my friends had tried to explain the year before, but until you are there and get to see the vast beauty surrounding you, you don’t really understand. The true wonder of this magical place is that it is not full of lodges and vehicles in radio contact with each other racing from one sighting to the next and jockeying for position.
This is a place that focuses on the balance of nature and allows you to search and see animals in their natural habitat.

Gary and Edyta are such wonderful hosts that you feel like you are in your home away from home. They are soo passionate about wildlife and this project. Their knowledge and experience and willingness to share this with others make this a place not to miss!
