The Wildlife of Wilderness Safaris

    Our conservation footprint covers three million hectares (seven million acres) across nine African biomes and includes 800 bird species, 280 mammals, 220 reptiles and no less than 63 amphibians. Our aim is to help and protect both the creatures and the wild areas in which they live. Nearly every region where we have developed a low-density tourism operation is in an area of extremely high species diversity and is a key wilderness area. We are proud that our projects have helped to protect these areas and have often increased the amount of land under conservation protection.
