To establish a lasting legacy built on our core principles of community, conservation and commercial safari partnerships. To have our concessions to be known to create personal experiences for our guests that they will treasure for a lifetime; and to be the destination of choice for unique wildlife and wilderness experiences in a comfortable atmosphere.
Within our team there are two key things we realized a long time ago.
Sustainable tourism requires the strong participation of local communities and the development of local communities requires the strong participation of local tourism operators. Only with such strong cooperation will we be able to achieve long term goals for the prosperity of local communities and the long term protection of large nature conservancies. Although we strive to be in remote areas, we do not wish to operate in isolation.
Our operating company Terra Conservancy Operations, a full subsidiary of Timbo Afrika Foundation in The Netherlands, not only trains local people for jobs in every aspect of the hospitality industry, but also supports local entrepreneurs in setting up their businesses, helps finding (international) markets for their products and motivates people to look after their habitat. A skills transfer program for local technicians has also been set up, allowing them to improve on building, plumbing and carpentry quality.
All the profits generated through our commercial operations flow back to the Foundation and are re-invested in the execution of our projects in Botswana and Mozambique.
