No. 1 Environment is at the Heart

Our ecotourism presence inspires biodiversity conservation

Why do we believe?

  • We are present in 8 biomes and 5 centres of endemism.
  • We traverse and help protect more than 2.5 million hectares of prime African wilderness land.
  • We help protect 33 different IUCN red list species, all of which are increasing in our areas.
  • In 2015 we were awarded a medal of Meritorious Service by the government of Botswana for our contribution to the country.

Africa is alone amongst the continents in the existence of a mega-fauna that lives side by side with humans. With some 1 111 mammal species, including an array of large charismatic animals not found anywhere else on Earth, the continent is simply unique.

It is also a continent battling population growth, development and extraction of natural resources. If biodiversity cannot demonstrate value, it is all too often overlooked. Ecotourism can and has changed that!
