Africa Nomads seeks to contribute actively to the conservation of endangered wildlife in Africa and the preservation of tribal cultures of native people as well as the funding for educational initiatives. Travelers on our journeys participate in our programs where a measurable percentage of the proceeds will go to trust funds for wildlife rehabilitation, local employment and building schools - saving as much animals as possible from the atrocities of poaching, breaking the poverty cycle and ensuring that tribal culture do not dilute. With our close relationships with our African partners, we will be issuing transparent reports of funds generated purely for the missions we are looking to achieve.
