Community & Conservation Safaris
Our Learn, Serve & Immerse African Safaris provide authentic cultural experiences to connect you with the people and communities we work with in many countries on the continent. The word safari means “journey” in Swahili, and what began in the Middle Ages as a means of trade, today safaris play an important role in Africa’s economic empowerment, conservation, and sustainability. The continent’s national parks, reserves and local communities need a steady stream of visitors to do their important work, so in a very real sense, you are making a difference simply by taking a safari.
