Leave a Legacy

There is a saying, “Live. Love. Laugh. Leave a legacy.” Short and sweet, yet it encapsulates the &Beyond experience to a T. We inspire our guests to escape the comfortable confines of their daily routines and to intrepidly explore the world in all its beauty and splendour. We help them to fall in love with the natural world and with each other. We encourage them to laugh and find their inner child. And we give thanks, because just by travelling with us, each and every guest leaves a legacy and allows us to continually care for our planet’s land, wildlife and people.

We believe in taking less and giving more and we apply this simple philosophy every day, through actions big and small, to our operations across three different continents. Whether it’s participating in the reintroduction of an endangered species like the black rhino, providing a viable market for local businesses to encourage enterprise development in the communities surrounding our reserves, or simply managing the vegetable peelings from our lodge kitchens, we consciously and continually look for innovative ways to leave a positive and lasting legacy on the earth.
