Purpose: Making a Genuine Difference
With nearly two decades’ experience in creating highly bespoke, connected, immersive experiences in the natural world, NWS have taken the considered step to invest further in conservation with the launch of Expeditions for Change. The first wave of these inspirational fund-raising programmes, each one carefully co-curated with our partners to provide the best hands-on access to conservation projects, are slated to begin during the 2020 and 2021 seasons.
Expeditions for Change opens up a new channel of philanthropic experience, speaking to luxury travellers’ growing demand to ‘travel with a purpose’. Although many of us are passionate about the natural world, the scale of the challenges facing our planet’s endangered wildlife and delicately balanced ecosystems can be overwhelming to comprehend, let alone tackle. How can the efforts of just one person make a difference? If you’re in need of inspiration, look no further than 16-year-old Greta Thunberg, who has united over 1.4 million children in a grassroots campaign to tackle climate change. She is fast becoming a voice for the next generation of conservationists, and is a fine example that one person can create a ripple effect that leads to true change.
With a collective consciousness growing around wildlife and heritage conservation across the globe and travellers seeking ways to ‘give back’ beyond their paid dollars, Natural World Safaris are responding to this urgent need for the tourism industry to play a greater role in sustainable conservation and community upliftment. We know that safari-goers increasingly desire to take a more involved, hands-on approach to the authentic wildlife experiences located in the world’s great natural ecosystems.
