National Geographic Expeditions and G Adventures continue to grow their joint travel programme, National Geographic Journeys, with new destinations and itineraries.

Starting in 2018, the National Geographic Journeys collection of 83 tours will include destinations such as Botswana and Mongolia, as well as less-travelled wildlife parks in Southern Tanzania.

In Botswana, travellers will get up close to one of National Geographic’s important initiatives on a visit to a field camp of the Okavango Wilderness Project. In Mongolia, they have the opportunity to spend time with a nomadic family in the Gobi Desert and try out traditional archery, meet with Buddhist monks and yak farmers, and learn from park rangers about efforts to reintroduce native Takhi horses to the wild.

National Geographic Journeys’ repertoire of African safaris now also stretches to the lesser-known parks of Southern Tanzania, where expert guides will discuss wildlife conservation in areas including Ruaha National Park and Selous Game Reserve—places that harbour some of the greatest concentrations of lions in the world.

Nancy Schumacher, head of travel and tour operations at National Geographic, said: “These tours combine travelling for fun with travelling for good, and they have a strong appeal as people become increasingly conscious about the impact of their holiday choices.

“We’ve collaborated closely with G Adventures to design enhanced experiences and capture National Geographic’s long history of exploration and discovery. When travellers go on our trips, they help support the work of our explorers and scientists, as a portion of our proceeds go directly to the nonprofit National Geographic Society.”

As an example of prices, a new ten-day Botswana & Zimbabwe Safari visits some of the top wildlife reserves in southern Africa and costs £3,699 per person.
