DAVID SHEPHERD WILDLIFE FOUNDATION
Conservation Safari Company is proudly associated with the David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation.
David Shepherd is known internationally as an artist and ambassador for wildlife. In 1960 he become a conservationist overnight when he came across 255 zebra lying dead around a poisoned waterhole in Tanzania. Since then, with the help of supporters across the world, the David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation (DSWF) has given away over £7,5 million in grants to save critically endangered mammals in their wild habitat and benefit the local people who share their environment.
How do we actually support the foundation?
Firstly, for all custom safaris and tours that are sold to travelers that originate through the David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation, we contribute 8% of the value of all land arrangements to the David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation - at no extra charge to you the client.
Secondly, we are creating a selection of safaris that feature some of the key projects in Africa, Zambia and Zimbabwe for now, that the David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation supports. We contribute 10% of the value of all land arrangements to the David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation for these particular safaris.
These [DSWF} trips are not only about seeing the amazing work of the foundation, but are fabulous safari experiences in themselves. By traveling with us on these safaris you are supporting the parks that inspired David and your park fees contribute to the daily running of the park. The camps and lodges have been carefully chosen for their location and their own commitment to conservation, sustainable practises and community involvement.
