Blue Marble Private x WildAid

We are thrilled to be sharing one of our favourite parts of the planet with our pioneering philanthropic partner, WildAid, on an adventure like no other through South Africa from 27th September to 7th October 2019. Hosted by WildAid founder Peter Knights, join us on a truly memorable journey from the iconic Sabi Sand Game Reserve to the endless horizons of the amber-hued Kalahari Desert.

Our journey will begin in the vibrant city of Johannesburg before flying by private jet to Singita’s Ebony Lodge – the original Singita lodge situated on a 45,000 acre privately-owned game reserve in the Sabi Sand and home to the big five. We will then continue onwards to Tswalu – one of the most magical settings in all of Africa and South Africa’s largest private game reserve with conservation at its core – to enjoy safaris by jeep or on horseback and be immersed in the conservation projects of the Oppenheimer family who are restoring South Africa’s last great wilderness.

Need to know: This all-inclusive 10-night hosted journey through South Africa from 27th September to 7th October 2019 is $150,700 per couple, which includes a $75,000 donation to WildAid.

Singita’s Ebony Lodge

Set amongst enormous trees on the banks of the Sand River in the heart of South Africa’s big cat country, Singita’s Ebony Lodge is an idyllic retreat, combining a luxurious tented camp with bush lodge style. Here you will get close to Africa's incredible wildlife with daily game drives and guided walks through the Sabi Sand game reserve, with the opportunity to witness modern conservation in action as we join the anti-poaching canine units on field excursions.

Tswalu Kalahari
 

Onwards to Tswalu, located in South Africa’s largest private game reserve, protecting over 270,000 ares of spectacular grasslands and mountains in the Kalahari Desert. Be amazed at the abundance of wildlife on game drives and horse rides, and gain insights on the research projects of the Tswalu Foundation, including studies of rare pangolins thriving on the reserve, under the guidance of a conservation expert.
