Southern Africa Eco-Luxury

Southern Africa has some incredible sustainable luxury properties. Our top picks in South Africa are Grootbos,  Earth Lodge, and Tswalu. 
In Botswana, we love Vumbura Plains, King’s Pool, and Nxabega. In Zambia, Chisa Busanga, Shawa, and Sungani take top honors, and in Namibia, Desert Homestead, Desert Rhino, and Shipwreck Lodge are our favorites. 


Philanthropy Unlocked

You can leave a legacy by funding and participating in a rhino relocation from a game reserve in South Africa that is under intense poaching pressure, to a protected reserve in Botswana.

You get to sit in the helicopter with the vet while he darts the rhino, land and spend time with the sedated rhino, then help it get airlifted off to Botswana.

You leave a legacy and save the life of a rhino.
