We are very passionate about making sure our tours and safaris support relevant community and conservation projects in the areas we visit. We work with and support the following initiatives:
We are proud to be part of the Treevolution! When booking one of our tours, you will be given the opportunity to add a tree to your bill. This is a fun and simple way to help compensate for the carbon you’ll be using on your trip. Your tree will be planted by Greenpop as part of their urban greening and reforestation programs in Southern Africa. Once your tree has been planted, you will receive a digital certificates with the GPS coordinates of your tree, so that you’ll know exactly where it’s growing!
The Happy Africa Foundation is a charity dedicated to community and conservation development in Africa. Working closely together with African Impact’s volunteer programmes, the Happy Africa Foundation supports a large number of projects that empower Africa's people and wildlife at a grass roots level. The charity works to ensure that the volunteer projects are sustainable, and that donations reach schools, clinics, orphanages, and other projects in a transparent way.
Animals on the Edge is a not-for-profit program conceived by conservationist and film maker Leo Grillo and wildlife photographer Chris Weston. Their goal is to conserve and protect endangered wildlife by proposing economy-based solutions that provide people with a financial and social incentive to conserve wildlife. Animals on the Edge recognizes that although the individual reasons that animals are threatened are many and varied, from the destruction of habitat and illegal hunting through to global warming, there exists a more fundamental problem - that of the on-going conflict between animals and people sharing the same pieces of land.
We are proud of our support of the African Lion and Environmental Research Trust (ALERT), which was founded in 2005 at Antelope Park in Zimbabwe. ALERT is a non-profit organization dedicated to the facilitation and promotion of sound conservation for the African lion in consultation with governments, wildlife authorities and communities. The Trust supports the four-stage African Lion Rehabilitation and Release into the Wild Program, which aims to provide a solution for the sharply decreasing number of African lions by releasing wild-borne offspring from rehabilitated captive bred lions into the national parks.
