Nonprofit safari organization Dazzle Africa is launching a "behind the scenes" safari experience in Zambia's South Luangwa National Park from June 29 to July 8.

During this safari experience, travelers will experience a day in the field with Dr. Matt Becker of the Zambian Carnivore Programme. The Carnivore Programme addresses the immediate threats to species and ecosystems as identified by conservation science. Guests will help support initiatives ranging from supporting anti-poaching and wildlife crime prevention to connectivity, land-use planning, species reintroductions, mitigating human-wildlife conflict and disease mitigation.

Travelers will also spend a day participating in Dazzle Africa's educational entrepreneurial program, Hands Over Zambia. This program provides skills-based training to Mfuwe Secondary School teachers who use the information to run a self-sustaining, student-run Entrepreneurial Arts Class and Market.

Accommodations are provided by Flatdogs Camp for the first five nights, followed by four nights in the Bushcamp Co.'s luxury bush camps.  The price is $8 555 per person for the nine-night experience, which includes $2,000 fundraising or donation, roundtrip flights between Lusaka and Mfuew and all gratuities, meals, excursions and lodging.
