AAC Making a Difference!
Booking a safari with AAC is more than just game viewing; there is purpose to making a difference! We are very involved in many African communities, giving back to conservation projects, and supporting guides at grassroots level. At the community level we assist students’ education as it is our hope they will be able to go on to a career in the wildlife conservation or tourism field. Let us arrange a visit to these projects on your safari travels. Because of our charitable work, the Africa Adventure Company has been awarded the Tanzania Tourist Board – Tour Operator Humanitarian Award for 2012.
We continue to sponsor 450 children at three schools near Hwange as part of the Children in the Wilderness feeding program. We identify children from here to also sponsor their high school education. Our annual donation is used to support monthly payments for internet connection.
Three schools we have partnered with are located near Arusha, Tarangire and Karatu.
We have a scholarship fund for over 35 children of the Tanzania guides who take our clients on safari.
Kenya Schools and Scholarships:
AAC has an ongoing sponsorship commitment of four years for high school students at the Moi High School near Tsavo (Kenya). We also sponsor a Maasai Camp assistant to attend College as he works towards his guiding license.
Mana Pools Bushlife Conservancy: We give a yearly donation on behalf of all the clients we have booked at Vundu Camp for their ongoing work with the park rangers and wild dog research.
Mother Africa Organization: We continue to donate and support their community and conservation projects.
Botswana Guides: We sponsor the opportunity for camp guides to work up their specialist knowledge providing them with private guiding opportunities that our lucky clients enjoy on a complimentary basis through the year.
Tanzania Guides: We run an annual Guide of the Year award to recognize a wildlife naturalist who has excelled at the highest level.
Wilderness Wildlife Trust: We are major supporters of Wilderness Safaris in Botswana, Namibia, Zimbabwe, Zambia and South Africa. Beyond the outstanding safari experience they deliver, we know that for every bed night we book with them, a portion of the price goes to the Wilderness Wildlife Trust. This is a true commitment to sustainable photographic tourism.
