The Conservation Travel Foundation is primarily a travel-funded Namibian Non-Profit Organisation (T153/06), dedicated to help with the protection and conservation of the spectacular, but delicate, wilderness areas of Namibia, and to the well-being of the indigenous peoples whose homes they are.
The Conservation Travel Foundation is dedicated to assist with protection and conservation in the wild areas of Namibia and rural development to improve the quality of life of the communities who live in and around them. The Trustees of the Foundation have great experience in these matters and they endorse the concept of responsible and sustainable tourism that promotes and supports both conservation and development.
In addition to providing Conservation Travel Foundation with administrative and logistical services, Ultimate Safaris raises an additional 2.5% of its commercial revenue for conservation efforts. All these funds are channeled through the Conservation Travel Foundation into projects ranging from assistance for rhino and predator conservation, to the improvement of school infrastructure in remote rural areas. These projects have set a local benchmark for ethical, socially responsible, and transparent impact investment. The result is that the Conservation Travel Foundation has become one of the most effective travel-funded, non-profit organisations in Namibia.
All participants in any safari with, or arranged by, Ultimate Safaris can contribute to the efforts of the Namibian people to achieve sustainable economic development, while conserving their natural habitats and wildlife. This can only be achieved through meaningful partnerships between the rural people whose homes are in some of the world’s most beautiful natural locations, Government institutions, private enterprise, and NGOs. Ensuring that the benefits of sound and pragmatic land-use management, including those from safari tourism, are adequately shared is both ethical and just, and this will ensure that these places can be conserved for the future benefit of all.
