Wild Philanthropy

Wild Philanthropy has been designed to provide multiple ways to invest in the future of Africa, its people, wildlife and wilderness.


Over the next ten years Wild Philanthropy will revolutionise the travel and conservation sector by rolling out its travel-driven conservation model. By developing our innovative approach that links travel, community, conservation and finance we will demonstrate that local communities can gain economic benefits from conserving at risk ecosystems.

Wild Philanthropy has a unique advantage in its approach in that it has been established by award winning frontier African travel specialist Journeys by Design and as such has access to skills, knowledge, experience of the African travel market as well as the client base that few others have. It also has in house conservation and impact investment expertise allowing it to identify both grant and investment opportunities that will deliver the conservation and community impact we strive for.
