FIRST AND FOREMOST, WE ARE CONSERVATIONISTS

But because we love travel and adventure just as much as we love conservation, we have integrated all three.

Our travel experiences are geared towards environmental sustainability and environmental ethics and eco-awareness underpin who we are, what we do, and how we do it.

Conservation is first and foremost about education and education is best attained through curiosity and adventure. That’s why a percentage of all our tours are donated to NPO’s (Non-profit Organisations) whose focus lies in conservation within Africa. We have aligned ourselves with various organisations that share our sense of urgency in ensuring the survival of all species – not just endangered species. Accordingly, our preferred beneficiaries are Youth 4 African Wildlife, Elephants Alive and the Now Or Never African Wildlife Trust.

Elephant, rhino, and lion bear the brunt of poaching, illegal hunting and “vengeance killing”, but hippo and other African wildlife are increasingly falling prey to these practices. Via demand reduction campaigns and education, Safari Giants are aligned with anti-poaching efforts. Our aim is not only to educate the general public, but to also highlight how the relationship between human life and animal life is interdependent.

We believe that the only way to care for something is to love it, and the only way to fall in love with something is to observe, engage and immerse yourself in it.

And what better way to observe, engage and immerse yourself in something, than through travel and adventure.
