            Celebrating our natural world heroes

            Our original Natural World Heroes campaign marked the 10-year anniversary of Natural World Safaris. To celebrate a decade of adventure in the natural world, we interviewed 10 extraordinary heroes that specialise in the destinations, wildlife and habitats that we take our clients to. After being enthralled by the stories of the first fascinating individuals that we featured, we felt that 10 wasn't enough! In the years since we have continued to feature new Natural World Heroes, allowing us to share more of what we love about these conservationists.

            Our heroes may be explorers, philanthropists or pioneers. They may be wildlife guides, biologists or documentary-makers. Helping to preserve and raise awareness of precious flora and fauna, our heroes reach out to individuals, communities, countries, organisations and travellers, to share knowledge about the environment and conservation.

            They help us to experience amazing wildlife and habitats in a responsible way, contributing to the future survival of some of the world’s most beautiful and fragile environments.

            By profiling a selection of inspirational individuals we hope to highlight their commitment to safeguarding habitats, wildlife and the communities among them. We hope that this will motivate travellers and natural world enthusiasts everywhere to use their voice and take action to do the same, in whatever capacity they are able to.
