Wildlife Conservation Roadtrip

This specially designed and exclusively packaged expedition project combines the most ethical and successful wildlife conservation projects we have visited.

We believe in collaboration in the form of a connected community sharing successes and failures.

We believe in transparency in who we work with and our place in this collaboration.

We believe that as a social enterprise we are unique in our community partnerships and project spending. Our expeditions have a responsible travel ethos and include charity donations and several forms of community support, carbon offset via tree plantings and local business partnerships. Where your money goes is very important to us!

You can choose to go direct to any of our partnering projects, the cost is the same and the end result for those projects will be the same. However, by joining The EXPEDITION Project you join a collaborative network that focuses on building collaboration, transparency and responsible travel.

Dates: Enquire for availability
