Atta Webinar - Conservation & Sustainability: Natural Selection’s projects, commitment & unique model

In recent history, we’ve seen conservation of the natural world grow from a fledgling awareness in the 1960s, to a global interest. But somewhere along the way, Africa’s wild places became second best. Animals were poached, and wilderness areas were stripped of trees, eroded and mined. We realised that something had to be done to protect these areas. From its inception, the business model of Natural Selection has been about creating an excellent safari experience that gives back and so 1.5% of each booking goes straight back to conservation. We believe that by simply visiting a wildlife area, travellers are encouraging its continued protection through tourism revenue. For that reason, our deep commitment to conservation is matched only by our devotion to providing our guests with the most unique and extraordinary safari experiences out there.

Atta Webinar: Jack’s Camp – iconic camp to be rebuilt and will reopen in May 2020

The iconic Jack’s Camp in the Makgadikgadi, Botswana is to be rebuilt and will reopen with a luxurious new look in May 2020 to celebrate the camp’s 25th anniversary. Jack’s Camp is a pioneer. The camp trail-blazed safaris in the harsh but beautiful Makgadikgadi region of Botswana 25 years ago and is still the only operator for almost 100 miles. The safari experience at Jack’s is unique. At first sight the lunar-like salt pans appear devoid of life, but in the hands of the knowledgeable camp guides the story of the Makgadikgadi begins to unfold. Whether it’s quad biking out into the remnants of the super lake, hunting for stone tools in the crusty salt flats or seeing the world through the eyes of the Bushmen, this is a safari where the focus is on learning, appreciating and being humbled by a vast landscape. To learn more about this magical part of Botswana and hear about all of the exciting new updates, join owner and founder, Ralph Bousfield, whose father pioneered safaris into the Makgadikgadi over half a century ago.

Atta Webinar: Borana Lodge & Conservancy - using tourism to fund conservation

Borana Conservancy is a 32,000 acre private conservation area hailed by Save The Rhino International as ‘Kenya’s newest and most successful rhino sanctuary’. In 2013, a founding population of black rhino were introduced to Borana and the population has since thrived. Once settled, Borana and the neighboring Lewa Wildlife Conservancy dropped their fences to form the Lewa-Borana Landscape (LBL), the largest contiguous rhino habitat is East Africa which spans 92,000 acres. The LBL currently hosts 12% (105) and 14% (98) of Kenya’s black and white rhino stocks respectively. Borana’s unique conservation model commits all retained earnings from tourism and other commercial enterprises to the sustainable conservation of wildlife, it’s habitat and building local livelihoods. All proceeds from Borana Lodge are invested into a wide range of conservation efforts such as a mobile clinic, an education support programme along with the training and welfare of 115 wildlife rangers.
