Great Plains Conversation
Kenya, Botswana, Zimbabwe
It all began/started when five individuals in their 50’s pooled their considerable skills & experience to create innovative, world class conservation projects in diverse & threatened habitats throughout Africa.
Great Plains Conservation’s mission is to find the right formula of conservation, communities & commerce that would make a lasting, sustainable difference to the world’s iconic wildlife & wilderness.
100% Sustainable “Conservation Tourism”. We define it as the use of quality led tourism experiences that are environmentally sound, with the benefits going specifically into making the conservation of an area viable and sustainable.
The clients and the guests, who visit the camps, become a valued partner and agents of positive change.
The ‘perfect safari’ means something different to everyone.
For some it means stunning accommodation in a remote, private concession with as many wildlife-drives as you can fit into a day. For others it is being out on foot or in a canoe, active all day and totally disconnected from the world back home. For some it is capturing the perfect photograph of one of Africa’s iconic species, for others it means spotting every bird on our 111 Club or introducing their children to the bush for the first time with our Young Explorers Programme.
Whatever your interests or travel style there is a Great Plains Conservation experience perfect for you. Use the pages below to help guide and inspire you as you plan the trip of a life time.
