Sustain Safaris offers wildlife and birding expeditions for small groups throughout Southern Africa.


Our explorations offer visceral experiences. Being out in the wilds with us will allow you to see when you look, hear when you listen and feel when you think. Join us on a journey of discovery, of both Nature’s treasure-chest and yourself.

We create and lead superb scheduled and tailor-made ecotours that explore the magnificent biodiversity offering of the region.​ We concentrate on birds and mammals (with a particular focus on rare and endemic species), although we take great interest in butterflies, frogs, trees and general ecology too.

At Sustain, we know that no two clients are alike, that bigger is not better and that tailor-made is best. From pure adventure to the lap of luxury, using our knowledge we bring your hopes and dreams to life by creating unforgettable journeys. Hidden gems, extraordinary access, natural wonders, remote destinations – that's the Sustain way.

Our mission is: to change people’s lives through passion-filled expeditions into untamed wilderness. We seek to create deep and lasting human connections with nature and the people who conserve it. 


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. 

Our conservation fund: Sustain was created as a conservation-driven ecotourism company, with a business model focused on creating exceptional and great value safari experiences that give back. Hence, we started the to support 3 chosen conservation NGOs doing amazing work. Learn more about the Sustain Conservation Fund here.

Should you ever require ecotourism and environmental consulting services, we also have a separate division, Sustain Ecotourism and Environmental, which provides these services. Refer to: http://www.sustainecoenv.com.
