Two of the greatest wildlife destinations – Kenya and Botswana – are home to the camps run by Great Plains Conservation. As their name suggests, the brand merges conservation, communities and commerce to deliver great safari experiences. A group of conservationists founded Great Plains Conservation in 2006 and the company is now headed up by the iconic filmmaker Dereck Joubert. It’s their aim to take threatened environments and return them to their former glory; you become part of their conservation success by creating a positive change through your visit.
Their camps in Botswana have pristine settings in the wilderness – nearby floodplains, rivers or lagoons. They focus on game-viewing by 4x4, on foot or by boat. In Kenya, Great Plains Conservation has four camps scattered in the country from the Masai Mara to Mount Kilimanjaro.
