A few of the many effective NGO’s working in Africa you could consider supporting.
How You Can Help
If you are travelling to Africa on safari, please book as many of the properties we represent as possible and support them in every way you can. They are making the effort to preserve Africa’s last wild places and are giving back to nearby communities;
Find out what NGO’s are most effective in the area, and see if you can help them in any way;
If possible, donate to local school feeding schemes; try to ascertain that they provide balanced nutrition and not just conscience hand-outs;
But most of all, travel to Africa’s safari areas and spread the love along with your much-needed foreign currency.
Pack for a Purpose
We are proud members of Pack for a Purpose, an initiative that allows travellers like you to make a lasting impact in the community at your travel destination. If you save just a few kilos of space in your suitcase and take supplies for the projects we support in need, you’ll make a priceless impact in the lives of our local children and families. Please click here to see what supplies are needed for our project/projects.
We are committed to not only enjoy but also preserve this continent’s last great wilderness areas. This is done by working together with other partners to raise awareness of the conservation challenges, supporting them in their efforts to preserve or expand wildlife areas and lastly, by contributing to the surrounding communities who are committed to do the same.
The team from Africa by Heart attended a screening of the harrowing “Blood Lions”. The film exposes several facilities in South Africa involved in captive breeding, designed for the canned hunting industry.
As a tour operator, Africa by Heart does not support petting “sanctuaries” nor the captive hunting trade. The result of these operators end up fuelling the thriving lion bone trade where lion bones are shipped to South East Asia to be used in phony medicinal treatments.
We need to put an end to canned hunting, lion breeding and the lion bone trade. Please support Blood Lions to make these practices illegal.
