Abercrombie & Kent Philanthropy

Duration: 7 days

Highlights: Nakatindi Village, Dipetsano Woman's Bike Shop, Rhino Conservation Project


AKP works with another non-profit organization in the US, called Working Bikes, which collects used and donated bikes. If you are located near Chicago and would like to drop off a bike, our AKP office in the United States will contact you with more details. Please note thousands of bikes are collected each year so there is no guarantee that your bike will reach a specific location. The best way to support the shop is through monetary donation for tools and shop maintenance.

Through our established 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, AKP, we ensure that 100% of your donation will be applied toward the project of your choice. AKP will provide you with a tax receipt for your donation. For more information or to make a donation via our secure online site, please visit www.akphilanthropy.org.

After breakfast you will be transferred to Sanctuary Chobe Chilwero. The transfer time is approximately one hour and 30 minutes.

Sanctuary Chobe Chilwero borders the Chobe National Park, which is the second largest national park in Botswana. Chilwero, means “place of high view” in the local language of Setswana. Sitting above the Chobe River, the lodge offers unparalleled panoramic views across the islands and floodplains as far across as Namibia. Each of the 14 thatched guest cottages has two showers, one inside and one outside. The en suite bathroom also has a large free-standing bath.

The lodge has a swimming pool and sumptuous meals are lovingly prepared by the expert culinary staff. Guests can expect an eclectic fusion of African cuisine and Western delicacies. Inspired by the abundance of nature that surrounds the lodge, the spa has drawn from that beauty to develop a range of treatments and rituals of the highest quality to relax, restore and revitalize guests.

Elephants feature largely on any activity at Sanctuary Chobe Chilwero, as the largest population left in Africa occupies this northern corner between Botswana, Zambia, Namibia and Zimbabwe. Game drives in open-sided 4 x 4 vehicles bring these grey giants into easy reach as they drink and frolic at the water's edge in their boisterous herds. Thrilling game drives lead by qualified professional guides bring you close to hippos, buffalos, puku and other animals that gather on the banks of the Chobe River. Naturally, lion and leopard are also found in the area.

Day 4 - Kasane

Your day is at leisure to enjoy the lodge activities on offer.

The best way to end a day of safari here is sipping on a cocktail while watching an African sunset over the still waters of the Chobe River from the comfort of one of specially designed riverboats. Sundowner cruises are also a great way of seeing buffalo up close as they come out of the shade to graze in the cooler evenings and elephants as they wade in the river. Chobe is renowned for its abundance of dramatic sable and roan antelopes with their impressive horns. Sitatungas - antelope with splayed feet to help them run in swamps - are often seen here, as are the wild dog and lion that prey upon them.

This area is known as the "Predator Capital of Africa" and is ideal for game viewing. The seasonal water of the delta ensures that the area in front of the camp is always changing - from a dry flood plain teeming with wildlife to a lush and tranquil lagoon.

Sanctuary Chief’s Camp’s twelve guest pavilions are nestled in a jackal berry and sausage tree woodland that is characteristic of the area. Each guest pavilion boasts an indoor and outdoor shower, a spacious seating area and a private game viewing deck overlooking the surrounding floodplains of the Okavango Delta. Luxurious four-poster beds with generously-draped mosquito nets and traditional ceiling fans also feature; and for your convenience, the rooms are equipped with a hairdryer, ceiling fan, room safe, emergency intercom and minibar.

The split-level main deck offers expansive views over the floodplain while the lower level of the deck houses an exquisite swimming pool to cool off after a day of exciting game viewing. All the main and public areas of the camp have been extensively refurbished in a 'safari chic' style including a newly designed bar and library area, the extension of the dining room and the addition of a pizza deck with pizza oven. A new orientation room where guests can learn more about the Delta before going on game drives has been added as well as a gym and kids play room. Game viewing opportunities include daily excursions in open safari vehicles and quiet mokoro trips along narrow delta channels during the flood season. Expert guides are always on hand to offer guests a wealth of wildlife knowledge.

Day 6 - Moremi Game Reserve

Your day is at leisure to view and experience some of the AKP projects available.

In 2015, AKP played a vital role in the reintroduction of a significant number of both Black and White rhinos into northern Botswana’s Moremi Game Reserve. A monitoring project followed in October 2017 with the purchase of a converted and dedicated Landcruiser and employing two full time conservation officers, Kandu and Olly, who have been tasked with monitoring the reintroduced rhino population. Kandu and Olly have been trained by the Botswana Anti-Poaching Unit who have a combined wealth of experience to share with our team that will result in a strong long-term collaboration between our AKP team and Rhino Conservation Botswana. Kandu and Olly drive out daily and track the rhinos and collect the needed data which is shared with government authorities through a non-partisan NGO, Rhino Conservation Botswana. The data is critical as it informs decision makers whether the project is successful and if so how many more of which rhino species to further reintroduce, where and when.

AKP Boma Lunch
Enjoy a bush lunch at the boma where the reintroduced rhino’s were kept before introduction into the wild. Kandu and / or Olly will join guests for lunch as they share their stories about AKP’s efforts AKP to protect these endangered species and the rhino relocation and monitoring program. Available to a minimum of two and maximum of six guests. (Weather dependent).

Please note: The boma area where the rhinos are kept before reintroduction into the wild will be used as and when additional rhinos are relocated. As this is only temporary housing for the rhinos we can’t guarantee that there will be rhinos present when visiting the boma.
