There is an Africa that most people never get to see

An Africa that knows nothing of cities, nothing of civilisation. An Africa where the sun beats down on endless expanses of bush and sand. Where water is more precious than gold. Where there are no fences to hinder the passage of animals. And where the only laws are those created by nature.
This is the Africa of GAVA EXPLORATIONS

Heidi Dednam

Heidi Dednam has more than two decades of guiding experience, eight of which were in the Botswana Wilderness. First as a conservationist in which she is qualified, and later in the tourism industry. Top quality guides are rare breeds who are committed and dedicated professionals. The enthusiasm Heidi generates is a natural spin-off of her way of life. She is a born leader, combining experience in leading expeditions with a wealth of knowledge and excellent organisational skills. She can turn a good safari into a great safari through her exceptional and all-round skills. Cooking on the fire is a passion for her.
