Our Commitment to Responsible Tourism

Ultimate Safaris is privileged to be operating in some of the most pristine and delicate wilderness areas on earth. We are dedicated to the protection and conservation of these areas and to the improvement of the quality of life of the communities who are living in, or on the borders of, these pristine areas. We believe that the future of these unique environments lies in the hands of these communities, making them pivotal in the custodianship of these wonderful assets.
 
Ultimate Safaris has a registered non-profit organization called the Conservation Travel Foundation which is in support of such ideals. We have a deep understanding of all the areas in which we operate and support responsible tourism that in turn supports and promotes conservation and development initiatives. We contribute a percentage of all our revenue towards the trust which is spent on Conservation Travel Foundation-approved projects, which range from rhino and predator conservation to improved schooling infrastructure in rural areas.
 
In effect this means that guests, jointly with Ultimate Safaris, will be giving tangible assistance to the Namibian people and their environment in their efforts to achieve economic viability without doing harm to natural habitats and wildlife, so as to utilize both on a sustainable basis for the benefit and enjoyment of future generations.
