Travel to Zambia next July

  • Jul 17, 2013 · 7:00 PM

My wife and I are organizing a small group (6-10 people besides us) to travel to Zambia next July. Information at: http://openheartsafari.com/

It is nearly impossible to travel to Africa without being deeply touched. The sheer abundance of wildlife and vast expanses of natural landscape inspire awe. The continent is home to numerous indigenous peoples, cultural traditions and rituals, and decades-old nations still working to establish basic literacy and health programs.
Open Heart Safari is designed for people who want to experience the beauty and subtleties and challenges of Africa. We get close to wild animals in vehicle, on foot, boating down river; visit remote wilderness areas far from other tourists; visit rural and urban communities; meet with conservationists and activists. The trip incorporates contemplative practices, yoga, movement, poetry, and regular group check-ins to deepen our connection to the environment, explore our experiences, and keep our minds, bodies and spirits healthy.

This is not a business, and I am not making any money--it's just a project I've felt inspired to create.

Our inaugural Open Heart Safari this past August was a tremendous success (see testimonials on trip website). So we're doing it again! Our next trip is July 17-31, 2013, with an optional 2-day extension to Botswana, July 31-Aug. 2. We hope you'll consider joining us.

Please contact me if interested, or if you have any questions. I have created a website giving info about the trip: http://openheartsafari.com.

    Hey - this may be a bit forward - but on your night in Lusaka I would like to suggest that you visit an incredible community of women and children in Ng'ombe township. It is a radical experiment in community and relationship that would fit quite well in your trip. It can sometimes be hard to find meaning filled adventures in the capital and this is pretty much the highlight of so many people's trip in Zambia. Happy to talk more about it if you'd like. It's called Chikumbuso - everyone there knows about it but happy to give you details. You sound like folks who would love it.
