Tourism Matters

Safari Pros member companies believe in travel that treads gently, and our partners and suppliers on the ground have proven themselves to be good employers, good stewards of the environment and good collaborators with community and conservation entities.

How you travel and who you visit makes a big difference. Safari travelers to Africa deliver an enormous inbound source of revenue to local communities and countries they visit, helping to generate significant employment and funding for wildlife conservation.

In addition to the obligatory park and concession fees, which often add up to thousands of dollars per booking, our individual members also make generous contributions to wildlife conservation, environment, education and community programs.

Our members promote diversity and equity in the industry, encourage the hiring of female guides and support women and underrepresented communities while championing fellow partners who do the same.

Safari Pros member companies support dozens of vital conservation & community initiatives across the African continent. A small selection of these programs are highlighted below:
