2018 Safari Dates & Updates
I don’t know where the time has gone! This update is waaaaay over due and I have lots of news to share with you.
As a wildlife ambassador, my goal has always been to create awareness about the threats facing our world’s wildlife by taking you to places where you can experience these magnificent animals up close and personal, while you still can. By doing so, I hope that you too can become ambassadors for wildlife.
Let’s start with two future safaris I’ve developed for you: India and Alaska.
India – Tigers and Snow Leopards
Did you know there are more tigers in captivity in the state of Texas than there are in the wild? India is home to approximately 3,500 wild tigers. With April and May being the best time to view tigers, I spent three weeks this spring exploring India’s wildlife. While my exploratory trip took me to multiple locations throughout India, future tiger safaris will focus on central India.
Next month, my family and I are on a quest that will take us to the Himalayas in Northern India in search of the White Ghost, aka the snow leopard. Stay tuned for a trip report and my announcement of 2019 tiger and snow leopard safari dates.
Alaska, often referred to as the “last frontier”, has captivated travelers and photographers alike. While part of the United States, it can feel like a foreign land. Alaska is so large you could fit the state of Texas in it twice! Alaska is also home to some amazing wildlife.
While the focus of our trip will be the Alaskan Brown Bear, we will experience fly fishing, hiking, rafting and camping. This inaugural trip is limited to just 4 guests.
Kenya – Annual Migration
Kenya never disappoints, and our Big Cat and Migration safaris this year were no exception! These perennial trips are scheduled for 2018 with one new offering: an optional extension following the Big Cat Safari in February to Uganda for a gorilla trek. Several guests have been asking for this trip and we are making it happen in February.
Kenya School Building Project – Satao Wildlife Foundation
A visit to a local village school is a part of all of our Kenya safaris and is a very rewarding experience for our guests. This past February we noticed the student population quickly outgrowing the current facilities, with many students sitting on the floor or doubled up at desks. Long story short, I committed to fundraising to construct a new 4 classroom and 4 office building complete with desks and textbooks for each student.
We have raised nearly half of the $60,000 cost of the project and need your help to raise the rest. While I’m certain you have no shortage of good causes, I would like you to consider supporting one more.
To learn more or donate on-line, please visit the Satao Wildlife Foundation, a 501c3 public charity I established whose mission is “Improving the lives of wildlife”. We do this by improving the lives of people through community conservation programs in Africa. This school is our second project in Kenya.
If you have any questions, please contact me and I would be happy to answer your questions. The architect drawing is below.
