Our philosophy at Intrepid Expeditions is not just to leave a place like we found it but also to improve it. And that means partnering with properties, guides and suppliers that share a common vision for conserving the African wilderness and empowering the local people to sustain that vision. Below are a few of the foundations we support:
African Bush Camps Foundation
The African Bush Camps Foundation is a registered not-for-profit organization that is committed to empowering rural communities. We partner with communities on the outskirts of wildlife areas to become economically sustainable whilst ensuring that natural resources are protected and cared for.
The foundation believes that by partnering with these communities in establishing sustainable programs of education, income-generation, conservation awareness and holding community events, we can together improve the communal quality of life and achieve long term conservation through responsible tourism.

Children In The Wilderness
Children in the Wilderness is a non-profit organisation supported by ecotourism company Wilderness Safaris to facilitate sustainable conservation through leadership development and education of rural children in Africa.
Insight, care and commitment are required to conserve Africa’s pristine wilderness and wildlife areas. If we are to ensure that these places continue to exist – in this generation and those to come – we need the rural children of Africa to understand the importance of conservation and its relevance in their lives. Hence, our Children in the Wilderness programme: an environmental and life skills educational programme for children, focusing on the next generation of decision-makers; inspiring them to care for their natural heritage and to become the custodians of these areas in the future.

Land and Life
With the majority of East Africa’s spectacular wildlife living outside National Parks on private and community land, a strong connection between local communities and their surrounding environment is paramount to the future of wildlife conservation and habitat protection. The Land & Life Foundation is committed to ensuring that local communities receive revenue and tangible benefits from tourism.
Over the years since its inception in 2011, the Land & Life Foundation has achieved a great deal in ensuring that communities living in the vicinity of wildlife areas genuinely benefit from tourism. We strongly believe that the sustainability of East Africa’s wildlife and habitats depends on four key actions: securing land for conservation, protecting species and their environment, providing tangible benefits to the people who live alongside wildlife, and educating the next generation of conservationists.
Land & Life’s vision is to help create a sustainable future where communities and wildlife thrive together across conservation areas, safeguarding nature for the next generation. To achieve this, we support and design effective conservation education programs, community outreach and conservation initiatives for communities living alongside wildlife, across Kenya and Tanzania.
