As of late 2018, giraffes sadly joined the list of endangered animals facing extinction, and they are often overlooked in conservation efforts. Velocity Black, a members’ club and digital concierge service, offers a 12-day itinerary where you can assist in safeguarding the future of these gentle giants. Namibia is one of the only countries in the world where the giraffe population is actually increasing, and it’s here that you’ll help attach GPS collars to the giraffes.
You’ll learn from wildlife specialists while enjoying the comfort of the lodges (including Erongo Wilderness Lodge and Villa Violet) throughout the safari, and head out on game drives as well as learn from the locals about the geology, botany and time-honored traditions of the area. You’ll work with Dr Julian Fennessy, TV personality and conservationist Hayden Turner, and the Giraffe Conservation Foundation to ensure Namibia continues to lead the way in increasing giraffe populations.
Membership from $2,800 per year plus joining fee, by invitation only. velocity.black/elitetraveler
