From protecting endangered rhinos and elephants to conserving ecosystems, African Travel, Inc. cares deeply about the wildlife and local communities so precious to Africa – and the planet.

The TreadRight Foundation
African Travel, in partnership with the TreadRight Foundation, encourages the sustainable development of tourism by supporting projects that benefit the environment, heritage and community.
We invite all of our guests to volunteer during their journeys to Africa. African Travel’s Safari Specialists can facilitate those who want to donate their time, expertise or physical labor to a variety of projects in East and Southern Africa. Spend a day reading and making crafts with disadvantaged school children, assist at a medical clinic or help with repairs at a local community center. Just one-day volunteering truly makes a difference and is sure to touch your heart. . Make a lasting impact in Kenya by working with the "Me to We" foundation on a four-day Kenya Community Experience.

Shamwari Game Reserve Boma
Located in the Eastern Cape of South Africa, Shamwari Game Reserve combines 5-star accommodation with a world-class wildlife experience. Guests who visit Shamwari will not only experience an exceptional African safari holiday, but will also directly help rhino conservation. At African Travel, Inc., conserving and protecting the places we visit is at the heart of what we do. We are passionate about protecting and conserving wildlife and we are very proud to announce that starting this year, when guests book Majestic South Africa, a $50 per couple donation will be made in their name(s) to go towards the building of a rhino boma at Shamwari. The rhino boma will be a safe haven to rehabilitate injured or orphaned rhino, until they are strong enough to be released back into the wild.
