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

Natural Selection

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.

Immersive Safaris & Authentic Experiences with African Bush Camps

African Bush Camps

African Bush Camps has identified a new definition of what “luxury” entails. From the initial conception of African Bush Camps the importance and value was placed on the experiences as opposed to the fine finishes and “frills” of what others might deem luxurious. Expedition style camps were established to speak to the essence of an experience detached from the modern world pressures and high pace. Guests are able to submerge themselves in untouched remote locations where their senses are unhindered. Breathe, touch, smell, see nature in its most raw form. The luxury is remoteness.

Wilderness Safaris Zimbabwe’s Seasonality – Dry vs Green Benefits

People often rush to book the dry season resulting in lack of space, elevated rates and frustrations. However, the green season has so much to offer but is seldom talked about. Why visit in the green season? Why is it beneficial not only to the pocket but also to the guests experience? We are wanting to change the myth on the green season and make the question, why wouldn’t one travel in the green season if they had the chance?
