Namibia Sand DunesOur June installment of the Escape Your Everyday Travel Series takes us to Namibia, a model of conservation and environmentalism not just for Africa, but for the whole world.  Namibia’s stunning, other-worldly landscapes coupled with its unique, desert-adapted wildlife, make for a safari experience unlike any other in Africa. The country’s successful wildlife conservation and recovery story also stands out in sharp contrast to other parts of Africa where wildlife populations and habitats are declining at a worrying pace. A few key facts:
  • Namibia boasts the world’s tallest sand dunes, stretching across the world’s oldest desert.
  • Namibia was the first nation in the world to incorporate conservation into its constitution, and remains the only nation whose entire coastline is protected as a National Park.
  • Namibia is home to the largest leopard and cheetah rescue-and-release program on Earth.

Namibia travel expert Tad Bradley will share photos and stories from his own travels in Namibia, and present on Evergreen Escapes’ hosted Ultimate Namibia safari, a special small-group trip departing in November of this year.  See what Evergreen Escapes’ owner Jake Haupert has to say about his own experiences on his blog post highlighting his recent safari in Namibia.

Elsom Cellars will be pouring their award-winning wines and event attendees will be able to join a raffle for an Arc’teryx summit bag. Plus, attendees receive a special discount on Evergreen Escapes’ upcoming escorted journeys through Namibia, Zimbabwe, and Ethiopia.

Meet the Expert | Tad Bradley

Namibia Expert Tad BradleyAfter a successful career directing marketing and advertising campaigns for theatrical companies on and off-Broadway, Tad worked on a global advertising sales team at Microsoft developing interactive marketing programs on the Xbox platform for brands such as AT&T, Verizon, Ford, Unilever and Frito Lay. After several years of virtual adventures, he gladly took the leap into the real-world adventures of the travel industry. As the Marketing Director for Wildland Adventures, Tad led a major company re-branding including the development and design of a new website, planned and executed a multi-channel marketing plan and was responsible for streamlining and improving the overall sales process. In addition, he managed travel programs to Southern Africa and Central America. Prior to joining Wildland, Tad lived and worked in Guatemala as a guide and marketing consultant for several local adventure operators. He also designed and led student travel programs to Guatemala for Crooked Trails, a Seattle-based non-profit travel company. A lifelong adventurer, Tad has climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro, dived the Great Barrier Reef and ridden the rails of the trans-Siberian railroad (dodging Russian Special Forces officers and odd-looking smoked lake fish en-route). He brings his marketing prowess, destination knowledge and passion for adventure travel to Kusini Collection as the Director of Business Development.
