safari together

Safaris run for 14 days, participants will be responsible for their own transport and also expected to be self sufficient.

To start, we assemble at the nearest town to where the Safari will be held. From here you travel to the chosen remote area to set up camp. Intensive prospecting now begins.

During the next two weeks we will prospect in known and likely gold producing regions.  There will be concession for non prospecting travellers.

Suitable equipment for your experience can be hired  from John or ask him for advice on what is needed to bring your own.

PLEASE NOTE :  Applicant numbers do fill quickly, so it would be to your advantage to book your spot early!
