We endeavor to equip you, our valued agents, with quality itineraries that aim to minimize your clients carbon footprint while on safari in Africa. From setting them up in environmentally conscious safari lodges and hotels to including wildlife conservation and community upliftment activities, we do our utmost to ensure that their trip will have a positive impact on Africa.

Wildlife Conservation

Africa’s unparalleled natural landscapes and legendary wildlife have attracted travelers for centuries. Our aim is to ensure that your clients contribute to the conservation of Africa’s wildlife, environment and local people. We believe that preserving the continent’s delicate ecosystems and wildlife is a joint effort which should be practiced by both local communities and international travelers. Our itineraries promote lodges who actively partake in wildlife conservation through the establishment of their own conservation training programmes or anti-poaching units.

Environmental Awareness

Preserving Africa’s natural resources is imperative to the team at Grand Africa Safaris. We support suppliers who have progressed to using environmentally friendly amenities, have implemented energy and water saving systems on the property and recycle their waste. We choose eco-sensitive properties that have a limited impact on their direct environment and encourage guests to be aware of their consumption of natural resources.

Community Upliftment

Grand Africa Safaris supports safari lodges and hotels that empower local communities through job creation, training programmes, and philanthropic efforts. We support suppliers that are community owned or train and employ staff from local communities. These lodges offer skills transfers, providing an invaluable skill set to local communities throughout Africa.
Our preferred lodges support community outreach programmes that uplift local orphanages, schools, creches and home-based care centers.
