Geographic Expeditions has launched its first women-focused itinerary with a trip exploring the wonders of Namibia, Africa.
The women-only journey through Namibia is designed not only to celebrate the country’s landscapes and wildlife, but also its extraordinary achievements for women and girls: Namibia leads Africa in terms of gender equality (and, according to the World Economic Forum, surpasses much of Europe and the United States).
Throughout the intimate group trip, safari drives, nature walks and scenic flights will connect guests to the country, further enriched by conversations with female artisans, entrepreneurs, conservationists, mothers and teachers, all of whom are building a bright future for Namibia’s communities, cultures and wild landscapes.
The inaugural itinerary begins on September 1, 2024, and highlights include:
- Searching for leopards across the savannah and a behind-the-scenes visit with the veterinary staff of the female-founded AfriCat Foundation
- Soaring over the rugged Skeleton Coast on a scenic flight with an eagle’s-eye view of shipwrecks and dunes
- Wandering the red dunes and pale-white pans of Sossusvlei
- Meeting with children and mothers at the Little Bugs Early Childhood Development Centre
- Tracking black rhinoceros with a female ranger from Save The Rhino Trust and learning about her motivation for conservation work in a male-dominated field
- Getting to know the women employed by the Penduka Development Trust, whose embroidered artworks unveil personal stories
- Forging bonds with new friends beneath the star-studded sky at a safari lodge
