The continuation of the nature conservation projects and the protection of the wildlife areas is elementary for the future of the parks, otherwise there is no "after Corona". A sustainable tourism model built up over decades, which contributes greatly to the conservation of wildlife, would be severely damaged or destroyed forever.
With your help we would like to support the endangered natural areas in southern and eastern Africa with all our strength. Help us to preserve the wildlife in Africa - now more than ever!
The Okavango Delta is an inland delta in the north of Botswana that plays host to a fascinating cycle of rain, flood, drought, heat and cold. The floodwater is basically rainwater from the mountains of Angola, which slowly accumulates in the Okavango River over a period of several months. It squeezes through the panhandle, which is where the Okavango Delta fans out, and then floods the entire region. On the journey through the delta 90% of the water seeps away and evaporates.
The Okavango Delta is divided into private concessions where companies are allowed to operate safari camps under strict environmental regulations. Great Plains protects some of the rhinos that have been brought from South Africa to Botswana in recent years.
The rangers who protect the rhinos depend on income from tourism and need our support.
2021 - Support the Rhino Monitoring in Botswana - Donation of USD 10'000
Conservation in Africa in 2021 is still a big challenge. Due to Covid-19, tourists are staying away and funds for nature conservation are lacking. It is absolutely vital that the rangers can continue to do their job and protect the rhinos.
