Nowhere on the planet is tourism growing faster than in sub-Saharan Africa, and wildlife is the single biggest driver for this growth, attracting 80% of all visitors.

Sustain Wildlife and Birding Safaris is a tour operator based in Durban, South Africa, focussed on providing amazing ecotours and life-changing adventures. Our mission is to guide our guests on passion-filled expeditions into untamed wilderness.

Our goals are: to play a meaningful role in expanding or enhancing protected areas and biodiversity, to operate sustainably and responsibly, to help establish viable biodiversity economies and tourism destinations, to promote environmental and cultural education, and to positively transform ecosystems and the communities around them. 

We specialize in creating and leading superb nature tours that focus on the region's magnificent birds and wildlife, as well as all other manner of biodiversity. Our group leaders are qualified nature and birding guides, and will ensure that your expectations are exceeded, as we lead you into the finest bird and mammal hotspots in region, and stay at some remarkable lodges along the journey.

Our custom private tours endeavour to limit travel time and distance, and to rather focus on maximizing remarkable experiences in areas of breathtaking natural beauty. We look forward to creating the tour of a lifetime for you at affordable prices.
