SOUTH AFRICA & ZIMBABWE
On this 16 day adventure we take
ABOUT THE EXPEDITION
This fundraising expedition starts in Lusaka, Zambia and finishes in Kasane, Botswana. The reconnoitred and supervised route, in self-contained 4WD roof top tented vehicles, will see you camping, cooking and chewing the fat under clear African skies. Be prepared for off road driving, river crossings and shopping in local markets. The route takes us through far flung, traditional villages and national parks famed for game and sightseeing.
You’ll have the chance to meet Zambia’s warm and friendly people and get up close and personal with some of her predators and prey! We will visit the magnificent Victoria Falls on the Zambezi River as well as the Chobe River, where some of Botswana’s most abundant game can be found. En route we will visit the remote Mukinge Mission Hospital, where we will see the amazing work carried out here and meet the dedicated doctors and staff who passionately serve this community in which they live. All funds raised will go to building a new operating theatre for Mukinge.
Travelling with a maximum of 9 vehicles, the group will be led by Stew Nolan and his team who will provide daily briefings and assistance to guide you along this remote track. Stew is an experienced guide and wildlife photographer and has accompanied all the D tours trips thus far.
The motive for this tour is to raise much needed funds for a new operating theatre building at Mukinge Mission Hospital in Kasempa, Zambia. A previous Dtours guest and surgeon from North Shore Hospital in New Zealand, Richard Harman, has undertaken several trips to Mukinge hospital donating his time to perform surgery. It was through Richards connection with the hospital that we became aware of their need and decided to create a fundraising tour around the hospital in Zambia. As with all our expeditions, 100% of your donation goes towards the cause, in this case the new operating theatre block.
