&Beyond is the world's leader in luxury experiential travel and safaris. Our roots are in Africa and South Asia, where we run 33 magical safari lodges and camps in the most breathtaking parts of the continent and, through this, sustain hundreds of rural communities and millions of acres of precious, sometimes endangered wildlife land.
As the world becomes more crowded and people's lives get faster and fuller, so the peace and tranquillity of the natural world becomes an increasing attraction. With growing numbers of people visiting areas of scenic beauty, it is crucial to ensure impacts on natural environments are minimised.Conservation, which is at the foundation of &Beyond's business, is the preservation and careful management of the environment and of natural resources. This applies to the way we consume resources in our everyday lives, as well as to the protection of biodiversity within natural ecosystems. The continued existence of human life is dependent on conservation because our air, food and water requirements are inextricably linked to the state of our environment. Conservation is not a 'nice-to-have' - it is critical for the maintenance of functioning ecosystems that support all life on Earth.
Biodiversity is the full spectrum of living things in a particular place, as well as the web of ecological processes that unite plant and animal communities.
In addition to maintaining the vital life-sustaining systems of our planet, the complexity and beauty of wild nature fulfils deep aesthetic, intellectual and sometimes spiritual needs among humans. At &Beyond we understand this and, through sensitive, interpretive guiding techniques, we bring this wonder and majesty alive for all our guests.
We already contribute to the sustenance of over 3.7 million acres of wildlife land and, by expanding our network, the &Beyond model seeks to place more land on a sustainable economic footing through high-yield, low impact responsible tourism.
In order to achieve our multiple goals, &Beyond is committed to the following conservation strategy:
The &Beyond guest experience revolves around the ancient drama of the great wildlife spectacles of the world - a natural theatre.
The &Beyond model of community participation has become the standard for ecotourism within the industry.
Sustainability is not always about reduction - it's sometimes about growth.
