Africa's Arid Hwange National Park Benefits from Wildland Adventures' Focus on Water for Wildlife and People

SEATTLE - Feb. 19, 2020 - PRLog -- Where there's water there's life. One travel company, Wildland Adventures, engages its guests in the miracles that come with securing reliable and safe water for wildlife and villages in one arid region of sub-Saharan Africa.

Wildland Adventures' 11-day Zimbabwe 2020 Water for Hwange Conservation Safari (https://www.wildland.com/trips/africa/zimbabwe/water-for-hwange-safari/overview.aspx) immerses visitors into a symbiosis of wildlife viewing, village life, community development and hands-on conservation efforts.

"Wildland travelers on this safari make an enormous difference and are agents for positive change in Africa. With water comes life, there's a better quality of life for villagers and an exponential increase in the numbers of elephants and other wildlife that people travel so far to see," said Kurt Kutay, Wildland Adventures (https://www.wildland.com/)' founding CEO/President.

In 2019, Kutay's company made investments and led a GoFundMe campaign to purchase, install and maintain solar-hybrid water pumps that are becoming game changers in and around Hwange National Park. "The fact that guests get to see the pumps in action, along with the herds of elephants that congregate to the waterholes, and then meet the rangers who protect them, and the communities who benefit from tourism, is incredibly gratifying to us and our travelers," Kutay concludes.

Wildland Adventures and its partners have been instrumental in installing and maintaining a growing inventory of solar-hybrid water pumps that assist the conservation of elephants and other wildlife. These pumps are also making life easier for villagers bordering Hwange National Park in western Zimbabwe. Replacing two old diesel pumps with solar-hybrid water pumps has impacted 10,000 elephants and 3,500 Cape buffalo.

There are two departures of this life-altering conservation safari in 2020: June 10-20 and July 27-Aug. 6. The departure in 2021 is July 4-21. Guests meet teachers and children in village schools, sit with community leaders and spend a night in the field with anti-poaching patrols. On mountain bikes they pedal by creatures drinking at solar-diesel-pump-driven water holes and help monitor the pumps. Riding the colonial-era, 24-passenger Elephant Express rail car; canoeing on the Zambezi River; participating in game drives and in the excitement of viewing wildlife from underground blinds are part of the adventure that begins at Gorges Lodge at Victoria Falls.

Included in the $7,180 per person double rate is a $500 tax-deductible donation to Wildland Adventures' non-profit Travelers Conservation Trust Foundation (https://www.wildland.com/about/giving-back) that dedicates 100 percent of contributions directly to support the communities guests visit.
