Wilderness Travel is organizing a Symposium and Safari Program that will give travelers an insight into Namibia's unique conservation model.

"Namibia: A Vision for Wildlife" is a four-day event that will take place from April 8 to 11, 2019. The symposium will feature presentations from pioneering conservationists as well as enable delegates on-the-ground opportunities to see the conservationists' work in action. Delegates can choose one of eight specially curated safaris for further exploration before and after the event.
