Group Wildlife Conservation Projects

Groups have the option of working with animals, caring for sick and injured wildlife at the award winning Shamwari Reserve or the unique Pumba Private game reserve.

These group tours are some of our most popular projects amongst schools and large groups with good reason. We go out of our way to ensure that these tours are suitable for you and your group, and our personalised service offers groups a truly tailored expedition to cater for their individual needs incorporating their level of study and, of course, their subject. As a result, we are proud to say many of our clients use us regularly ever year to organise their trips to Africa.
