Protecting Africa’s wild heart lies at the core of our values. We understand the importance of smartly allocating tourism dollars to organizations that put sustainability and protecting wildlife at the forefront of their practices. Every year we support projects and regions that proactively work to improve ecosystems for both the short and long-term welfare of African biodiversity.

We seek to inspire action and a deep appreciation for these beautiful places with trips that stay in your heart long after you’ve left. We weave the story of conservation into every itinerary we create. Whether its in the private reserves we send you to, a behind-the-scenes tour of an anti-poaching unit or a hands-on experience with a local research team, you directly see the impact of your tourism dollars at work. Check out our Conservation Safaris to find your own adventure.

A $50 per person donation is included in every trip, all of which goes directly to the conservation and community empowerment projects we support. For more details on recent initiatives we’ve been loving, explore the profiles below.
