Tour operator AndBeyond adds adventure to family fun with the introduction of its new WildChild program. Children are introduced to an interactive learning safari experience with daily missions and excursions that help foster an understanding of the wildlife they encounter in Botswana, Namibia or South Africa.
Children will be given a specific mission each day that they can log in their WildChild logbook and fill their complementary backpack with mementos from their adventures. Missions feature “poo walks” to investigate the dried dung of various animals, tracking animals with an expert ranger at Kirkman’s Camp in South Africa’s Sabi Sand Game Reserve and fishing on Botswana’s River Xaranna. Children can also learn to make traditional Zulu bows and arrows and join the chefs at Namibia’s Sossusvlei Desert Reserve to cook authentic homemade meals specific to the area. www.andbeyond.com
