A vast majority of our Safari Partners are among the world’s highly respected conservation establishments. We work hand in hand with professionals whose organizations reflect a great deal of our foundations & principles. Below is a brief introduction to a few:
The Conservation Corporation of Africa [CC Africa]
CC Africa is Africa's largest ecotourism group employing approximately 3000 people. With an approximate 10:1 person dependency ratio, it is estimated that the organisation supports the livelihood of almost 30,000 people. CC Africa’s annual financial commitment to conservation and community projects across Africa is US $2 600 000.00. The company also founded, developed and funded the Africa Foundation, now an independent, not-for-profit organization initiating projects on behalf of CC Africa and other rural African communities. In their vision for Africa, they promote the belief that the wisest use of our wild places is through the development of multi-use tourism, for the benefit not only of travelers, but also for the rural communities who live among our enormously rich wildlife heritage. With the establishment of CC Africa's first reserves, such as Londolozi Private Game Reserve and Phinda Private Game Reserve, both in South Africa, they have created role models for the rest of Africa.
