Giving Back

We visit some of the most pristine locations in the world; some are home to a local population less fortunate than ourselves, or to fragile environments and ecosystems.

All too often, their plight goes unseen, whether it’s the devastation in marine environments caused by ghost nets in the Indian Ocean, leopards and cheetahs being poisoned in Botswana, rhinos massacred for their horns, or Cape Town’s hungry street children. Over the years we’ve found a few charitable organisations and donate to support their quest to minimise humankind’s impact on the environment, and bring relief to those in need. Join us in aiding these noble organisations to keep our world beautiful and prosperous so that future generations can enjoy inspiring journeys of their own.

Africat Foundation

When our groups travel to Namibia they always visit Africat, a Foundation which strives towards the long term survival of Namibia’s predators. It has a rehabilitation centre for leopards and cheetahs and educates farmers on how to stop these cats eating their stock.

Bridging the Gap Mekong Trust

For every booking on ‘Mekong riverboat cruise’ a donation is made to help build and sustains village schools along the river. These donations buy desks, textbooks, pads and pencils, builds new schools and toilets, concretes dirt floors and replaces roofs.
