“You must treat the earth well. It was not given to you by your parents. It is loaned to you by your children”

- African (Kikuyu) proverb -

“As for myself, I do not believe in loggers, I believe in trees. I do not believe in fishermen, I believe in fish. I do not believe in miners, I believe in the rocks beneath my feet. I do not believe in pie in the sky spirituality, I believe in rainbows, rivers, mountains, and moss. I do not believe in environmentalists, I believe in the environment. I am a proud traitor to my species in alliance with my mother the Earth in opposition to those who would destroy her, those parasites who believe the Earth is here to serve human interests.”

Our Conservation

Travel has evolved from the adage of taking only photos and leaving only footprints. The world’s wild places need us to do better than that. Now it’s about taking memories and leaving a legacy.

Classic's deep commitment to the planets incredible wildlife and landscapes for the backbone of our ethos. From the deep deaths of the Indian ocean to the wild African plains of the Serengeti, we unite tourism, community and conservation to work towards our long term vision of preserving wilderness for future generations. We support a carefully chosen conservation initiatives which empower local communities and cultivating a new generation of attitudes towards wildlife and its protection.

Rhinos without Borders

In partnership with Rhinos without Borders, the foundation was formed by &Beyond and Great Plains Conservation, as a response to the devastating rise in illegal rhino poaching in south Africa.

In partnership with the South African and Botswana governments, Rhinos Without Borders project, over the last five-years, established a substantial new wild population of rhinos in Botswana.  The success of this project is evident in the number of rhinos successfully relocated and the significant number of calves that have been born in the wild. This new population of wild rhinos is giving hope for this iconic species across Africa.  With the population the translocated rhino and their offspring exceeding our original target of 100, our focus is now on the security of these animals.

Classic Perspective continue to support to Rhinos without Borders, every time a holiday is booking to any of our destinations in Africa.

Sheldrick Wildlife Trust

The Sheldrick Wildlife Trust is a non-profit and one of East Africa’s oldest and pioneering conservation organisations that has worked for the protection and conservation of wildlife and wild habitats in Kenya for over 40 years.

Classic Perspective have partnered with The Sheldrick Wildlife Trust (Based in Nairobi, Kenya) in a unique and unprecedented partnership. All of our traveler's whom makes a booking to Kenya will have the opportunity to sponsor an elephant from the foundation, with Classic Perspective donating the full cost of a year adoption.

The foundation is best known as a leader in orphaned elephant rehabilitation, the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust is the first organisation in the world to successfully hand-raise orphaned milk-dependent elephants and reintegrate them back into the wild through its Orphans’ Project.

Painted Dogs Conservation

Painted dogs are one of the most endangered species in the whole of Africa. They may not be as famous as their trunked, horned, or maned neighbours, but these painted dogs —also known as African wild or hunting dogs—are beautiful, unique, and fascinating social animals.

Our partnership with Painted Dog Conservation allows us to work alongside their long term conservation model, which makes a significant difference to the painted dog population in Zimbabwe. More that 60 people from the local villages run the conservation programs and run the education and outreach programs.

These efforts span everything from the Anti-Poaching Unit team which patrol local areas daily to provide a direct form of protection for the dogs, while also run the Rehabilitation Facility where treatment for injured and orphaned dogs is at hand before returning them to the wild.

Painted Dogs Conservation monitor more than 6 packs of painted dogs on a daily basis across Hwange National Park and 4 packs in Mana Pools and the Mid-Zambezi.

Community partnerships only work if our commitment to local communities is so deep that they trust that what we’re doing – preserving this land – is in their interest.”
