A WORD ON OUR CURRENT STATE OF AFFAIRS | COVID -19
We understand the current global situation has created a lot of uncertainty and we all have concerns, especially around travel. As earth's most resilient species our love of travel will drive us to find solutions. We have all seen successfully navigated crisises and global disruptions resolved. This situation is no different. Until then, however, Black Panther Safaris is 100% committed to curating “once in a lifetime trips” while supporting Maasai girls in school, plus our 1% promise to providing ongoing support for lion and wildlife conservation, the Maasai communities, and general sustainability. This is of utmost importance in Africa, now more than ever!
One of the best things about safari is the impact your trip will have for generations beyond the memories you create. First of all, your visit will put a girl through school for a year. Think about that. You’ll be changing the projection of a young person in her life who will come to learn more about her country not just her tribe, who in turn will learn about the safari industry that supports and protects the wildlife. She will see the imperative for the African Wild to remain whole and healthy. And through education, she will come to protect and serve this precious Circle of Life.
You’ll be helping to squash the pervassive poaching trade. Safari Guides are usually the first to spot poachers and report illegal activities to authorities. When you go on safari you help that effort. It is our personal mission to continue protecting animals that are increasingly at least for extinction. We do this by employing people in rural communities, providing funding for education and supporting programs that provide Poaching survelance.. Without travel, without tourism, without safaris, without you, it becomes impossible to protect them.
If you are curious about safari but wary of travelling, we want to provide information on how and why you can book a safari for late 2020 or 2021 and beyond. Your safety is always our main concern and we want to ensure you have full peace of mind before you decide to book. To find out more about how we are handling travel amidst COVID-19 we will be writing more on our blog.
