Eco-Tourism Organization Offers Wilderness Adventure in partnership with African Conservation Project
DeepIntoAfrica.com has been granted sole rights to bring volunteers from North America to assist with the Tuli Conservation Project, a research initiative aiming to help preserve the pristine Tuli Block of Southern Africa.
- (1888PressRelease) October 19, 2010 - Los Angeles, CA. - Individuals interested in a truly unique volunteer opportunity abroad will have the chance to track game deep in the Southern African wilderness thanks to a partnership with a trusted eco-tourism organization.
DeepIntoAfrica.com has been awarded sole rights to bring volunteers from North America to assist with the Tuli Conservation Project, a research and monitoring initiative that aims to help preserve the pristine Tuli Block of Southern Africa. After paying a nominal fee, volunteers are housed, fed and instructed in game tracking, animal and plant identification, GPS mapping, data collection and more. All these skills are applied immediately in the Tuli wilderness as the groups go out to track wildlife and collect data.
"If you're looking for real adventure, imagine lying in bed at night and hearing an elephant browse the leaves off a tree over your permanent tent, or waking up at 4 a.m. and watching a leopard walk by," said Diederik Van 't Hof of DeepIntoAfrica.com. "With this trip, volunteers leave civilization behind, clear their minds and enjoy pristine wilderness away from the stresses of civilization. For as little as $100 per day, it is a really cost-effective way to experience an untouched part of Africa that you will remember for the rest of your life."
The Tuli Block consists of a largely uninhabited area traversing the borders of South Africa, Botswana and Zimbabwe. The area is home to large herds of elephants-which will be central to the data collection activities-as well as hyenas, lions, buffalo, leopards, baboons and more.
DeepIntoAfrica.com has been offering day tours, safaris, overland adventures, luxury bus tours, scuba safaris, motorcycle adventures and fly-in safaris since 1992 with the belief that eco-tourism will preserve Africa's biodiversity. As cheerleaders for Africa, the organization strives to provide a safe and exciting safari experience that offers excellence in terms of service, food, lodging and other necessities.
"This project is unlike anything else we have been able to offer in the past," Van 't Hof said. "We are tremendously excited about being able to give people the opportunity to experience the breathtaking beauty and excitement that is the Southern African wilderness, in a whole new way. Not only that but the men and women you meet there from the United Kingdom, Australia and South Africa become very close friends based on this life-changing shared experience."
The Tuli Conservation project is entirely self-funded non-profit organization and does not accept grants or support from governments or private businesses. Volunteers may stay for as little as two weeks or as long as three months.
