Conservation & Community

We’re serious about conservation

We pride ourselves on our relationships with sustainable, ethical, conservation-minded properties and operators all over Africa. From hands-on rhino monitoring and gorilla research experiences to donating a portion of every booking to causes we trust, conservation & Community is at the heart of everything we do and everywhere we go.

We believe in authentic connection

Do you want to connect with local communities and make a positive impact on the places you travel? Is authenticity and respect for the people paramount? Do you worry about canned, exploitative, inauthentic encounters that just feel wrong? We do, too. 

When you safari with Extraordinary journeys, you can rest assured we’ve vetted every one of the community exchanges we offer. They’re as real as they look, and you’re not paying for a show. You’re providing meaningful support and meeting people who are genuinely glad to have you there.
