THE EXPERIENCE

The Global Conservation Corps is a premier conservation organization, focused on bridging the gap between people and wildlife. Our travel experience aims to connect passionate travelers with the conservation professionals that conduct essential work on the ground. This immersive experience exposes our guests to the world of African conservation, through an exclusive and behind the scenes approach. Over the course of a week, guests interact with leading conservationists, scientists and leaders, through hands-on interactions. Trip proceeds benefit the various conservation organizations visited. We lead small groups, no more than 10 people per trip, to ensure a high level of exclusivity, comfort and attention to detail. Our mission is to facilitate the highest levels of exposure, adventure, and long-lasting memories for our guests, while driving impact for African conservation.
