Our Values

Sustain is so much more than a tour operator. We want you to love this land as much as we do, to take it into your heart and embrace a fuller understanding and deeper respect for all its biodiversity.  We would love for you to end your tour with not just an amazing photo album of all the wonderful sightings you will have enjoyed, but with something you will carry inside your heart forever.

For us, this goes way beyond being a business; it is an opportunity to share our experiences, adventures, and sense of wonder. We believe in combining tourism with conservation, culture and community, and in always operating in a sustainable and responsible manner. In addition to caring for you and ensuring your tour is truly spectacular, we dedicate our time and resources to the natural environment, its inhabitants and its conservation champions.

We are committed to being custodians of this inspiring land, so we sincerely hope you will share our vision and values – because this is not merely a holiday trip, it is a way to expand your horizons and to give back to future generations and the precious wildlife we cohabit this remarkable planet with.

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