Safari, Diamonds, Adventure? Sign me up. If you’ve always wanted to experience an African Safari that is not only a once in a lifetime trip but is also ethical and sustainable, now is your chance.
The 2018 South African Safari with Mervis Diamond & ESPN 980. Mervis Diamond is a leader in diamond industry providing the best quality stones and service in the DC area. We all see that impossibly sparkling stones that fill their downtown store Mervis Diamond 1700 K Street NW WDC 20006
What you may not know is that The Mervis family comes from South Africa and have been in the South African diamond business for 80+ years. Ronnie Mervis will be leading this trip, proud to share his homeland with you. Steve Czaban will co-host with Ronnie, representing ESPN 980. My favorite part of this experience is that in addition to seeing the animals and incredible sights, discovering that this trip is not just extraordinary but also ethical will be a powerful moment of understanding for safari participants.
Learning about how the diamond industry helps support an enormous number of communities in South Africa will make you look at buying diamonds differently forever.
You will view game at sunrise and sunset from open safari vehicles, accompanied by a professional game ranger and skilled Shangaan tracker.
Radio contact brings you reports of the latest game sightings, increasing your chance of spotting the ‘Big 5’. The private lodges adjacent to Kruger have well-earned reputations for excellent wildlife viewing experiences… which translates into a photographer’s paradise!
Some of the common species seen on a regular basis: elephant, lion, buffalo, giraffe, crocodile, zebra, hyena and, of course, the ever present birdlife and antelope species. Leopard sightings, although generally a challenge throughout Africa, are becoming common at Kruger. It is also quite possible one will see cheetah, rhino, wild dog and some of the very rare species such as genet and pangolin!
The dates are February 17-26th 2018 and the cost is around $5,000 per person which includes; all flights (international + domestic within South Africa), all ground transportation, all luxury hotels and safari lodging, all guides and trackers, entrance fees for vineyards, safari, etc. Most meals except for during free time.
