We believe that as an active member of the African safari community it is our responsibility to participate in, support and promote these to our clients and partners across the globe.
Each year we select a number of projects that we support for that year and these fall within the themes of the Three C’s: Conservation, Communities, Climate.
Contact us to learn more about any of these projects, or any of the amazing programs across Africa that we support or are aware of.

Indigenous tree seeds in a protective capsule of charcoal dust plus nutritious binders. Species include nine types of acacia seeds, three types of native dryland grasses and a selection of more than six other types of indigenous Kenyan trees. Here’s to a greener, cleaner future – seed by seed!
