Wild Philanthropy

While ecotourism, conducted ethically and responsibly, can and does have an important positive impact on both wild ecosystems and rural communities, the enormity and urgency of Africa’s challenges demand more.

Donations and grants are not solutions in themselves given the impermanence of their impact, but, combined with the strong ground presence of a committed ecotourism business, they can have far-reaching effects

This is why we partnered with Wild Philanthropy, a charitable foundation designed to protect at-risk ecosystems and support vulnerable communities in Africa.

Some of our most important projects include the establishment of a private rainforest reserve in Madagascar, an irrigation and food security project in Ethiopia and a rural children’s environmental education programme in Zimbabwe.

Donations by US taxpayers are tax deductible through a 501c facility, while alternative mechanisms exist for guests from other parts of the world.

We love talking to past and future guests and helping plan trips of a lifetime, but we don’t take direct bookings.

Instead, we work with a wide network of specialist tour operators all around the world in order that our guests can liaise with someone in their own jurisdiction, time zone, culture and language to craft the perfect African expedition for them.

Contact us - We’d be happy to help design a trip and recommend a tour operator that is right for you.
