All our projects are safe even if you don't have a friend to go with you, and we've made sure we only work with those that believe in the conservation of species

You'll be totally involved in the conservation and rehabilitation of endangered and at risk animals in Africa. 

We also have Orphanage Projects (for human orphans rather than lion cubs) as well. All you have to do is choose. We can design your dream trip with back to back projects for you too so just get in touch.
