It’s not often you get to join a World Cup winner on the trip of a lifetime, while also supporting the crucial work the Northampton Saints Foundation does in the local community.
But that is exactly what you can do if you book a place on Africa Exclusive’s 30th anniversary trip – which will see you explore the 1,600 miles of the Zambezi River.
It is taking place from May 13th to May 20th 2020 and includes a host of incredibly special experiences, with former Saints and England star Steve Thompson in attendance.
Thompson, who won the World Cup with England in 2003 and was a key figure for Saints for a number of years, will be joining the adventure at Victoria Falls for a high-octane journey by canoe, raft and helicopter.
The former British & Irish Lions forward will also be coaching the Tujatane School team while he is there.
There will be so many special experiences for those who book on the trip, including a safari, a visit to an elephant conservation and the chance to track endangered rhinos.
There will also be a canoe journey down the Zambezi, gin and tonics overlooking the wildlife at the Stanley & Livingstone Boutique Hotel, a scenic helicopter tour over the Victoria Falls (known as ‘the flight of angels’) and white-water rafting through Batoka Gorge.
All of this comes while you are staying at exclusive, five-star accommodation.
And, maybe best of all, you will be helping to provide valuable funds for the Saints Foundation as we aim to inspire, support and educate young people in Northamptonshire.
Because, for every Saints supporter who books their place on this trip, the Saints Foundation will receive a 10 per cent commission.
You will have to be quick as there are only eight places available on this incredible adventure.
