What makes Unfold Africa Safaris special? You.
We design each safari around guests’ unique needs, passions and curiosities.
Would you like to walk through the African bush, learning about animal tracks and spotting game with an experienced guide? Are you passionate about photography? Does game viewing from a boat while drifting down the Okavango Delta sounds like your idea of heaven? Do you want to gaze at the brightest stars you’ve ever seen, listening to stories of the constellations of the Southern Hemisphere?
Let us design your dream safari.
Where It All Began
Unfold Africa was founded by Vundi Kashamba to give guests a unique, personal experience, showing you glimpses of the continent and its creatures that he loves.
Vundi was born in Botswana and grew up on the western side of the Okavango Delta in a small village called Etsha. His first tracking lessons when he was little were from his grandfather, who taught him how to look for a particular horse he wanted to ride by examining their tracks, which painted a picture of the unique way each horse walked.
His passion for the bush was ignited quite accidentally one day when he promised a friend he would go with him to a presentation on the fauna and flora of Botswana. The first lesson was deadly boring, but luckily Vundi was a good enough friend to return for the next lesson – because it would change his life.
As he entered the classroom, he saw that a video had been set up for them to watch: a documentary called ‘Wildlife Warriors’ filmed by Dereck and Beverly Joubert in Selinda, Linyanti, in the early 1990s. When the credits faded as the film ended, Vundi knew he had been changed forever, and left that classroom knowing he was committed to conservation.
“I always say that Dereck and Beverly’s documentaries have stolen my heart and hidden it in the wilderness,” he says.
