Our Impact

Prioritize Sustainability

Prioritize Sustainability

We go out of our way to partner with lodges and organizations that prioritize sustainability and responsible travel. From conservation projects that protect wildlife and resources to eco-friendly establishments that offer hands-on support, we offer a variety of unique opportunities to help promote positive changes in Africa.

Ubuntu Travel is a proud partner with the African Wildlife Foundation, an international conservation organization dedicated to preserving wildlife and habitats—and working to give Africa a more sustainable future.

Empower the Community

Empower the Community

Creating jobs for locals not only helps improve lives but also drives a passion within the communities we serve to support tourism and be mindful of animal conservation. Our partner lodges work to educate and employ local residents from the surrounding community. In addition, many of our partners offer educational visits to local communities where travelers can learn about unique cultures and customs.

Clients can also show their support through sponsorship programs offered by our valued partners (e.g., Sheldrick Wildlife Trust in Nairobi, or Acres of Love all throughout South Africa). Please reach out to a member of our team for more information on ways to get involved.

Responsible Travel FAQs

Do all trips have a responsible travel component?

Our partners in Africa aim to protect the land, wildlife, and natural resources throughout the continent. Guests can feel confident Ubuntu Travel is directly giving back to African communities and assisting with various conservation projects built to sustain the area, wildlife, and people.

Does Ubuntu offer conservation trips?

We partner with various luxury safari operators for exclusive animal conservation experiences. Guests are given a first-hand experience alongside seasoned wildlife specialists and veterinarian teams to assist in a number of conservation activities with rhinos, elephants, lions and other threatened species.

How are animals treated on safari?

Our guides take many precautions to ensure animals feel safe and are never threatened by vehicles on game drives. Our guides will brief guests on game drive etiquette before departure and will remind the party of safety measures throughout the journey. In a successful safari situation, animals will not pay any attention to the vehicles and will see them as a part of their environment.

Testimonials

  • "Without question our trips to Africa with the Green Family and Ubuntu Travel stand out as highlights in our family's memory of experiences. We enjoyed time with the Greens, and three other couples, in Cape Town and Kruger in 2010 via a well-orchestrated trip that exposed us to an experience beyond our expectations. We then traveled with them again to Zambia and Botswana in 2016, this time on a YPO family experience with over 100 people. During each trip, we were impressed by the exceptional accommodations, gracious hosts and staff, and the overall experience working with the Ubuntu Travel Team. Even while traveling with a large group, all transfers and events were seamless. We are so thankful for all of the memories we will cherish from our adventures in Africa."

  • "I visited Africa for a spectacular gathering of global entrepreneurs with my wife. As Global Chairman of the organization hosting the event, I was treated to some fantastic experiences. My wife and I decided we would one day visit again, with our children, knowing that we could never exceed the experience we had on that first trip. To our surprise, our family trip to Africa coordinated by Ubuntu Travel Group was even more special, exclusive, and exquisite than the first visit we made. Jill and I decided, on that trip, that we must go again, with our entire extended family, but only if the trip was planned by Ubuntu and the Green Family. If you are searching for a unique and surprising experience, travel to Africa with no one else."
