I want to be part of your team what are the requirements, I work for SINOMA CEMENT
Ok nice it looks so beautiful 🙉
It wont let me add this as a Review for you.... A group of 10 of us (all adults) visited Wildtracks last week. We were doing an organised canoeing adventure down the Zambezi River to raise funds for local kids to go to school. Paula and Sven invited us to visit, to take a look around as we passed through on our adventure. I am GLAD WE DID! Wow, what a place. The accommodation is really great and the activities on offer here are fantastic. The learning environment is one of the best I have seen for personal development, DoE, animal conservation and sustainability education. Really excited to learn more about your work and maybe visit with a group of adults for a Retreat!
Thank you for hosting such a great camp Paula and Sven and Cyrintha and Chris!!! Can't wait to do it again.
We have high quality bedding from Spin Linen South Africa on sale! Call/whatsapp 0977976350
I cannot wait to try this
Paula Vrdoljak/Sven Vrdoljak been chatting to some Mom's in Lusaka and we would love it if you could come up with a summer camp during the summer hols....what do you think?

Mission: Our name Tulukani Adventures reflects our ethos and our origin in Zambia. “Tulukani” is derived from the ChiNyanja verb “tuluka” which means “to go out” or emerge. Outside is where we work and where people learn and grow. We encourage you to come outside with us to discover their own adventures while you: EXPLORE – Outside of your comfort zone. There is so much to see and experience! At Tulukani Adventures we are constantly exploring Zambia and it is our honor to share with you all the wonderful places and untouched corners of our land that we find. LEARN – Outside of the classroom. We are committed to our belief that when we participate in challenging adventurous experiences, we are given the opportunity to learn and grow. All our adventures are specifically designed to meet the needs of the group and each individual participant ensuring a speak learning experience for all. Not everyone has the same needs or abilities. It’s important that we help each individual reach the goals that they set for themselves through our activities. BE SAFE – Outside with us. The Zambian outdoors provide endless possibilities for adventure, however with any outdoors activity there is a certain level of risk. We are always aware of the risks involved and are committed to mitigating these risks in the best way we can. We pride ourselves in delivering our adventures with the highest standards of safety and professionalism, enabling us to provide transformative experiences without compromising on the learning outcomes or safety of anyone involved. Have Fun – Outside of the box. An Adventure should be fun. It is vital to us that everyone ends their Tulukani Adventure with memories and stories to share with friends and family for years to come. We aim to explore without losing our way, learn without getting bored, be safe without being too serious and challenge without intimidating. A fun adventure is a priceless gift that will transform and inspire you and those that you share it with.

Congratulations to the The Duke of Edinburgh's International Award-Zambia participants from the International School of Lusaka who completed their Silver Qualifier through the Zambezi Valley. Their Adventurous Journey took them from the banks of the Zambezi to the foothills of the Muchinga escarpment.

Thank you to Woods camp at Muchichili Safari House, the Zambeef Chiawa Estate, and the people of Shikalomo.

Another great week spent with Baobab College at Wildtracks Lodge.
Looking forward to the qualifier!

Our Environmentalist/Conservationist of the week is Chaona Phiri who attended secondary school at St. Monica’s Girls Secondary School in Chipata, Eastern Province. She graduated from the University of Zambia (UNZA) in 2012 with a Bachelor of Science in Ecology and Wildlife Management, by which time she was already involved with Bird Watch Zambia (BWZ). She joined BWZ when it was still known as Zambian Ornithological Society (ZOS) in 2008 during her second year at UNZA as a volunteer intern
She is currently the Programmes Manager at BWZ managing 4 projects with a great team of young enthusiastic upcoming conservation leaders and a very supportive membership which set awesome baselines for all programmes currently running at BirdWatch Zambia.

Over the last 5 years, she has completed a Master of Science in Biodiversity Wildlife and Ecosystem Health- where her research was on the One-kwacha bird – Zambian Barbet, endemic to Zambia with a very small range of less than 90000 km2,, this species is restricted to South-central Zambia and has a very high affinity for fig trees. Chaona is currently doing a PhD in Conservation Ecology using the Black-cheeked Lovebird as a focus; possibly endemic to Zambia and among the top 10 birds adversely affected by Climate Change and desiccation in south-west Zambia.

Of the 4 projects she is currently managing, 2 are innovative and pioneer-type as they had not been done before on such a large scale in Zambia. The DEFRA funded biological contorl project seeks to control an aqautic invasive alien plant on the Lukanga Swamp. There are plenty of plants which are native and indigenous to Zambia but over the last few decades, a lot of non-native and invasive species have been brought into the country – one such species is the Kariba weed, Salvinia molesta which is an aquatic plant commonly known as water cabbage.

The weed forms a mat on water, reducing both sunlight and oxygen underneath which ultimately may lead to death of fish and other underwater species as providing breeding grounds of vectors of disease such as mosquitoes. In addition to that, the weed also reduces habitat quality for other aquatic species such as water birds which are great indicators of the ecosystem health. In sites such as the Lukanga Swamp where water transport is one of the predominant modes of transport, the presence of the Kariba weed makes this close to impossible as boats are unable to navigate through the weeds.

Chaona is happy to be leading an innovative biological control initiative to control this weed on the Lukanga swamp which is an important bird and biodiversity area supporting at least 350 species of both resident and migratory birds and about 22500 fishing households.

Another project Chaona is working on is the Vulture Safe Zones initiative; Vultures are the most successful scavenging species whose presence in the environment has multiple health benefits to ecosystems and other species such as humans living in these ecosystems. Unfortunately, Vultures are now also among the most critically endangered groups of species as thousands are lost each year. In light of this, Chaona and her team are working closely with pastoral farmers, game ranchers and game reserves on an initiative called the “Vulture Safe Zones” which seeks to ensure that vultures have safe food and are not feeding in high risk areas in which they are being poisoned by humans. All in all Chaona’s overall goal is to be in a decision-making position to influence the sustainable use of ecosystems and the services they provide.

And why did she choose to work with birds of all species? Well, birds are supposedly one of the most studied groups of living organisms but she’s of the opinion that most of our data in Zambia is out of date. She states that, ‘as a country we have a very rich avifauna but we are not paying attention to it, nor are we getting the maximum benefits out of it.’ It is her hope that BWZ’s work will help change this.

We look forward to more adventures in 2020!

Congratulations to all. We are proud to have had the privilege of walking with you on your Award Journey....

So happy to have Trident Prep School and Trident Prep Kalumbila School from Solwezi adventuring with us for the first time. The cookout is one of our favorite team building activities.

FINAL BERMUDA UPDATE :(

As the sun sets on the The Duke of Edinburgh's International Award Adventurous Journey and Residential Program, all we can say is thank you to the Participants, parents, Award Leaders and The Duke of Edinburgh's Award in Bermuda for entrusting us with delivering a safe and transnational experience.

Safe travels back to Bermuda, hope to see you soon.

BERMUDA UPDATE

On the last two days of their Residential the participants delivered the desks that they had helped refurbish to Kanyangala Community School. The Team also visited RHO Appleseed School in Bauleni, Lusaka. At both Schools the participants interacted with the students and the community. A highlight on both days was watching the participants perform Bermudas traditional Gombey dance.

BERMUDA UPDATE.

The past two days have been amazing!!!!

We were at Conservation Lower Zambezi - CLZ and the Lower Zambezi National Park

The group learned about the conservation efforts of CLZ in the area as well as some of the challenges associated with human/wildlife conflict.

This morning we were in the Lower Zambezi National Park and had the opportunity of spotting Lions, Buffalo, Elephants and a Leopard (to mention but a few).

Thank you to Conservation Lower Zambezi for hosting us and to Muchichili Safari House , Kiambi Lower Zambezi and Gwabi River Lodge for the game drive.

BERMUDA UPDATE.

Yesterday the participants spent their day at the Kabwadu community garden.

The day was filled with dance, song and laughter (and lots of hard work), as the Bermudian participants worked side by side with their Zambian hosts.

The day was an opportunity for the participants to become immersed in the Zambian culture, whist at the same time providing meaningful service to the community.
