Most travelers to Africa barely scratch the surface, only leaving their lodges to go on pre-planned game drives and never truly engaging with Africa's majestic animals and traditional tribes. Explorer, fine art photographer and philanthropist Mark Lakin is passionate about Africa. He has facilitated cutting edge anti-poaching programs like tranquilizing, microchipping and DNA testing wild rhinos. Mark is connected with Africa's most traditional tribes, joining the Hadzabe for bow and arrow hunts and the Himba to heard their cattle across Namibia's desert. A passionate humanitarian, Mark facilitates orphan education and brings solar light to communities without access to electricity. Join Mark as he shares some of his extraordinary travel experiences in Africa and learn how you too can go beyond the pre-planned game drives and gain special access to Africa's most special tribes and animals.
