Agriculture

Our agricultural visits include banana farming in the local community, tobacco cultivation, and a dairy, beef and poultry farm who have pioneered a great training scheme to encourage young farmers from the local community.
In Namibia we meet with a state vet and see at first hand the challenges cattle farmers face raising their stock in close contact with wild animals, and in such challenging climatic conditions.

Wildlife

Zambia, Namibia and Botswana, are countries with diverse wildlife, memorable scenery and rich cultural heritage. There will be many occasions when we are specifically undertaking game drives to see the wildlife of the regions we visit in its natural habitat including The Chobe National Park which has one of the greatest concentrations of game found in the area.

We have just returned from Africa where we experienced the most wonderful holiday of our lives. Although we have been on several of your tours we both agree this was above and beyond any of the other superb tours. The accommodation , scenery and unbelievable wildlife we have seen as well as the fantastic group of people we travelled with. Finally thank you all at Bay Farm Tours for allowing us to

Live our Dream”.

We will also hopefully see, when at one of the rural villages in Namibia, traditional methods of ploughing with a team of oxen.
