Sustain offers tailor-made wildlife and birding expeditions for small groups throughout Southern Africa.

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.

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. 

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. 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 biodiversity hotspots in the region, and stay at some remarkable lodges on the journey.

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


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.
