About Us

Wild Philanthropy is designed to support at-risk ecosystems in Africa through linking travel, conservation and community development.


Wild Philanthropy is a public non-profit, established in 2016 by award winning African travel specialist, Journeys by Design.

Now part of the Africa House Group we use all of the experience built up by the Africa House Group partners over the past 20+ years to deliver a unique model that supports Africa’s people, wildlife and wilderness with sustainable tourism at its heart.

We are not a project implementer, but pride ourselves in being able to identify some of the highest quality conservation and community development projects in Africa and then linking them up with all important funding to help them further their mission.

Wild Philanthropy has 501(c)(3) status allowing donations to be tax deductible to the full extent of the law. In addition, we work with our UK partner to make donations from UK tax payers eligible for Gift Aid.

Our operating costs are covered through our partnership with Journeys by Design allowing 100% of donation we receive to be channeled to projects on the ground.
