About / Enriching Lives
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 unique areas. We believe that the future survival of the environment and the natural inhabitants of these regions lies in the hands of these communities, and that this makes them pivotal in the custodianship of their surroundings.
The Tou Trust is Ultimate Safaris' registered non-profit organistaion and it is fully in support of such ideals. The Trustees have a deep understanding of all the areas in which we operate and they support the policy of responsible tourism that in turn supports and promotes conservation and development initiatives. Ultimate Safaris contributes a percentage of all our revenue towards the Trust, and these funds are spent on Tou Trust-approved projects. These projects range from assistance to rhino and predator conservation initiatives through to the improvement of schooling infrastructure in rural areas. In effect this means that embarking on a safari with Ultimate Safaris means that our guests and partners, jointly with Ultimate Safaris, give 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.
We believe that successful conservation depends on meaningful partnerships with the communities in and around the wilderness areas in which we operate, sharing benefits with the people who open their hearts to welcome our guests into some of the world’s most beautiful natural locations.
