Philanthropic travel

Whether it's tracking wild mountain gorillas with the Gorilla Doctors in Uganda, exploring pristine rainforest with researchers in Borneo, or visiting the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust in Nairobi to meet orphaned ellies, philanthropic travel brings you closer to the issues and causes you care about. These are very personal and rewarding journeys that enable you to meet the people, see the wildlife, and understand the challenges they face. They're a great way to pass on values of caring to your children, even grandchildren, to help them become agents for real and positive change. It's travel that gives back.

With so many communities around the world relying on tourism to survive, when you travel with an ethically responsible tour operator like Scott Dunn you're already helping to sustain and create jobs and protect wildlife. Philanthropic travel goes one step further to educate and engage at a grass roots level, whether you're simply packing vital school supplies in your luggage, supporting a guide school or efforts to provide clean drinking water to villages. Whatever your cause, we'll create a unique trip for you and your group; one guaranteed to open hearts, challenge misconceptions and leave a lasting legacy.
