Discover Africa with WildAid: Bespoke journeys with Peter and Corie Knights to visit our partner programs.
May 9-22 South Africa and Rwanda adventure hosted by Corie and Peter Knights
South Africa is a country of astounding diversity, home to incredible wildlife and dramatic landscapes – from the endless horizon of vast deserts to the epic wilderness of the most magical game reserves in Africa.
Your WildAid adventure begins with a night in Johannesburg before flying to South Africa’s largest privately-owned game reserve, Tswalu Kalahari, encompassing over 270,000 acres of spectacular grasslands & mountains. Here you will meet with conservation experts of the Tswalu Foundation, protecting and conserving the biodiversity of this incredible ecosystem including the resident population of curious meerkats.
Continue to the renowned wildlife haven of Sabi Sand and the acclaimed Singita Game Reserve. Go behind the scenes with Singita’s canine unit and meet the experts leading this impactful conservation initiative, before traveling onwards to Singita’s private concession in the legendary Kruger National Park.
From South Africa you will fly to Rwanda – the land of a Thousand Hills – where you will have the opportunity to track the country’s majestic Mountain gorillas and speak to conservationists about Rwanda’s vision of wildlife protection and community partnership. This will make for a memorable end to your WildAid adventure!

Africa 2018- Kenya
“Our Kenya outing with Peter and Corie was easily the most rewarding of any of the several safaris we have enjoyed. The game viewing was exceptional, the accommodations and food were top notch, and the overall planning was without a flaw. But, beyond the sweet sensual experience of exploring the plains and valleys of Kenya, and of course the magnificent wildlife, was the unique intellectual content we found in each day. Along the way we conversed and traveled with exceptional guides, with game reserve executives, with local conservationists, with dedicated veterinarians on-site, with wildlife orphanages, with anti-poaching law enforcement, and with other WildAid partners. We came away with a greatly expanded understanding of the financial, cultural, political, technological, and purely practical issues around protecting African wildlife. And in the process we were inspired anew by WildAid’s critical role in this imperative.” –Stewart Smith, Kenya 2019
“Our time in Kenya with WildAid was truly transformative. The experience of seeing both the wildlife and interacting with the communities impacted by the work that Corie and Peter do will stay with us forever. We fell in love with Kenya and are so grateful to WildAid.” – Camille Bently, Kenya 2018
“Traveling to Africa is much more than a “bucket list” experience, it is an opportunity to see life in the rawest form up close, to see creatures large and small in their habitat, to observe their triumphs and losses and truly understand the struggle they face to survive. Traveling to Africa with WildAid takes the experience to a level that is difficult to describe and that is magical and life-altering. Communing, up close, with species that are so threatened they may not see the next generation is powerful. Meeting the conservationists, veterinarians and rangers that invest their lives in protecting them and understanding their commitment to saving them is humbling. It reminds us all how important this work is. This is the unique experience that traveling to Africa with Peter and Corie provides and that can’t be replicated without them.” – Meredith Eggers, Kenya 2018
