Every day on our safari, Tasimba features another visiting expert who introduces a different but inspiring topic, to stimulate great discussion among the group.
In our daily indaba (meetings), at mealtimes, and in casual exchanges around the campfire these discussions naturally run much deeper, as the subjects presented are often not previously given much thought. This is one of the uniquely curated benefits of the extraordinary week long Tasimba experience.
Here’s how one former guest described the impact of the visiting experts:
Here’s the thing with Tasimba. It’s not just what you see in the bush: the animals, the landscape, the sunsets and cloud displays that are so transforming.
It’s the peer group conversation and thought-provoking analysis that comes from your fellow travelers and the experts that Tasimba brings to the mix. The local guides and anti-poaching specialists who take you inside their world of conservation and celebration of nature; the folks who run the camps and spearhead the programs of support for the local villages; the headmaster of the local school and the headman and his wife who see to the needs of the villagers; all of them are on hand to share with you their insight into the leadership and perseverance required to make a difference in a world of constant challenge and change.
In addition to the special magic of a masterfully planned safari experience, the Tasimba team infuses a daily dose of conversational depth and value that has stuck with me ever since.
Simple insights and observational instruction from South African business strategist and naturalist Vernon Creswell about what we can learn from the behaviors of elephants, wild dogs and lions have become staples of my team management roster of techniques for motivation and problem solving.
Just as they benefit from other unique Tasimba elements such as sole occupancy of the luxury safari camp, the vast private wilderness in which it is situated and the composition of the peer groups of which they are part, our guests get a deeper, richer immersion into Africa through the wide-ranging topics which are woven into the week-long Tasimba experience.
Awareness, discovery and fresh thinking that is inspired by our experts – another unique benefit that adds yet more value to make Tasimba the African safari experience like no other.
