‘Miles from nowhere – at home.’
– Will Jones
In 2021, we set up our first non-Africa operations, Go Local. Employing the same conservation-driven travel model used in our work in Africa, this sees private mobile camp-led itineraries take place in the UK and US, with a view to extending the service into Europe.
In reducing carbon footprints, reintroducing travellers to the wonders of their own backyards, and supporting local rewilding and wilderness protection projects, the aim here is to build on our ambition to make people think twice about travelling, and that when they do, to do so in the knowledge that it is for the long-term benefit of all. The significances of these wildernesses aren’t just a local issue. They’re of national and, therefore, global importance.
