Raised in Namibia, Liebenberg has decades of experience when it comes to planning family-friendly trips, including walking safaris that emphasize conservation and wildlife education. While the pandemic impacted many 2020 trips, Liebenberg says, travelers are newly motivated to reconnect with nature in Africa's wide-open spaces.
While the pandemic did impact many 2020 trips, Liebenberg says, other travelers have been motivated to reconnect with nature in Africa's wide-open spaces. "We've had travelers consistently there since September 2020," he says. "I have myself done three extensive, multi-country safaris to experience first-hand how our partners in Africa have been able to host travelers without incident." Among some of the new camps that Liebenberg is particularly enthusiastic about are Xigera, in Botswana, which he says is "absolutely spectacular, with service that's best in class." He's also keen to check out "Tuludi, a beautiful premiere lodge that recently opened up in the Khwai Private Reserve in Botswana" as well as "Kwessi Dunes Lodge on the Namib-Rand Nature Reserve in Namibia. It's really impressing our travelers."

"The qualities I admire most in Chris are his extensive knowledge and understanding of his African homeland, his deep passion for wildlife conservation, and his extensive network of guides, lodges, and other professionals across the continent. He takes personal responsibility for every traveler he works with. Recently he helped me organize a fundraising safari to benefit the Cheetah Conservation Fund in Namibia. His meticulous attention to every detail and personal support throughout the trip (which ended with some of us stranded in Namibia due to Covid shutdowns) resulted in a positive extension to an already extraordinary adventure. It easily could have been otherwise. He made himself available 24/7 with information, resources, and support as we navigated the unprecedented circumstances brought about by the pandemic. He truly is a gem!" - Roswitha S.
