It’s certainly something to celebrate when a renowned conservation group joins an award-winning travel company to promote African experience excellence.
Exodus Travels has partnered with the African Wildlife Foundation (AWF), the primary advocate for protecting wildlife and wildlands as an essential part of a modern and prosperous Africa. AWF, founded in 1961, focuses on Africa’s unique conservation needs, and Exodus Travels hopes to help bridge science and public policy and demonstrate conservation benefits.
A portfolio of carefully curated luxury adventures offers travelers the chance to go behind regular safaris and learn from wildlife experts about gorilla conservation in Uganda, conserving elephants and their habitat in Zimbabwe, and protecting a fragile population of wolves in the historic highlands of Ethiopia.
For 60 years, AWF has been helping local communities recognize the benefits of conserving wildlife rather than viewing it as a threat to their livelihoods. The organization is revered globally for its work to ensure conservation strategies work for wildlife and people.
Not only will travelers on safari witness Africa’s extraordinary animals firsthand, but they’ll also experience VIP access into AWF projects across the continent and meet with the incredible people and personalities making a difference along the way.
“During these times, supporting like-minded organizations such as the African Wildlife Foundation is more important than ever before,” says Robin Brooks, Marketing Director for Exodus Travels. “We are honored to join forces with such an incredible group of people.
“All Exodus adventures are dedicated to ensuring tourism dollars are used responsibly for destinations and local communities,” Brooks says.
Exodus Travels/AWF tours, punctuated by passionate guides striving for wildlife conservation and Africa’s people, are once-in-a-lifetime experiences.
Carter Smith worked with Save the Elephants, spent years rehabilitating birds of prey in the bush, and owned her own safari company. Craig Sholley studied mountain gorillas with Dian Fossey at Rwanda’s celebrated Karisoke Research Centre, was a scientific advisor for the IMAX film “Mountain Gorilla,” and currently serves as the Senior Vice President of AWF.
Currently, Exodus Travels is scheduling AWF safaris for 2021 and 2022. Exodus will donate a portion of each sale back to AWF for one of its local projects.
