Natural Selection was founded on the basis of our commitment to environmental conservation and the need to protect Africa’s important wildlife areas for the benefit of future generations. We are equally committed to community outreach and implement community outreach projects in villages in close proximity to our camps, which reflects our goal of improving the livelihoods of communities living alongside wildlife.
In keeping with our purpose “to be a force for good in the protection of natural habitats”, 1.5% of every guest’s stay at Natural Selection camps is committed to regional conservation and community outreach initiatives. Over and above the 1.5% contribution, Natural Selection have introduced a per person per night Conservation, Community and Reserve Fee. This non-refundable fee secures funds that are crucial to our areas of operation for protecting wildlife, wildlife habitat, supporting communities as well as managing reserves and concessions.
Since 2016 we have funded the development, implementation or continuation of 98 conservation and community initiatives: 61 in Botswana, 33 in Namibia, 3 in South Africa and 1 in Madagascar. 64 of these are community outreach and 34 wildlife conservation.
Help support Natural Selection’s mission to make a difference in wildlife conservation and in the lives of people living sustainably alongside wildlife areas. Donations from this site go to the Natural Selection Foundation, a US based 501c3 non-profit organization supporting these projects.
