Marine Conservation safaris
Genuine involvement in African conservation work is limited to a few projects involving educational encounters with orphaned elephants, chimpanzees and young lions.
Through a joint venture with the National Marine Aquarium in the UK we’ve teamed up with marine biologists and researchers in Kenya, Mozambique and Sao Tome.
The result is a selection of trips on which you can get directly involved with projects involving whale sharks, dolphins and sea turtles.
