Philanthropy

“A Partnership in Conservation”

The decision to embark on a wildlife viewing safari is an investment in preservation. For customized itineraries, First Light Safaris will donate 1% of your total booking price to one of the following conservation organizations of your choosing.  For set itineraries with me as your tour leader, 1% of the entire group’s booking costs will go to one charity that benefits conservation within the country we visit. There are a multitude of worthwhile charities around Africa. The top safari operators are deeply involved in supporting local communities. One such program is supporting a child to attend school. My wife and I have been privileged to sponsor a young man through The Bushcamp Company’s, Charity Begins at Home. He is the son of a scout I worked with in Zambia’s South Luangwa National Park.
