"Wilderness is a resource which can shrink but not grow." Aldo Leupold
All who have walked with us will know that we are conservationists at heart. Conservation is fundamental in our purpose. We believe that we have a responsibility to make a difference and are proud to say that we don't just talk about the "subject" but that each of us is in some way practically involved.
We believe in treading lightly on earth, low-eco footprint safaris and the wilderness philosophy of leaving no trace. 15% of African wilderness has been lost in the last 20 years - For future generations to enjoy what we have, we only work where part of your safari assists in wildlife habitat protection and community upliftment.
Our connecting people to the beautiful and remote wilderness areas we operate in, touches our client’s hearts in a deep way that see’s them understanding the importance of protecting them. Our walking safari's put feet and eyes on the ground, which helps conservation efforts, and the money we bring in assists the surrounding communities and helps keep these incredible wildlife habitats alive.
In 2015 Lutz Otto, our founding director, was awarded the "Order of the Bateleur" for his dedicated volunteer work within the conservation field. He was humbled to receive the award alongside conservation legends. The challenges created by our growing human population, habitat/ wilderness encroachment and fragmentation concern him. A member of the Game Rangers Association of Africa, he is the founder of an Honorary Ranger Initiative within the Greater Kruger National Park and has volunteered across numerous conservation projects. He serves on the executive committee of the Field Guides Association Of Southern Africa who focus on raising the standards of the guiding industry.

"I knew that in wilderness, we had resources that were vital to the well-being of the people of the world. These are the fountains that we return to for our nourishment" Dr. Ian Player
"When we see nature as a community to which we belong, rather than belonging to us, we may begin to use it with love and respect"
"In the end we will conserve only what we love. We will love only what we understand. We will understand only what we are taught" Baba Dioum
