Kenya for the Long Run 2014 - Africa Discovery

From the incomparable wildlife of the Maasai Mara, the captivating biodiversity and elephants of Samburu to the fascinating conservation and cultural experiences of the Laikipia region, this journey offers an unrivalled voyage through the land where the safari originated. Known for its endless savannah plains and empty deserts, only interrupted by snow-capped mountains and equatorial forests, Kenya is a land of diverse ecosystems and magnificent landscapes.

Each lodge visited is associated with the Long Run Initiative – an initiative dedicated to achieving sustainability through the balance of the 4Cs (Commerce, Conservation, Community and Culture).

Zeros for Rhinos – a Fundraising Safari with Great Plains Foundation

Zeros for Rhinos - a fundraising safari with Great Plains Foundation


Great Plains Conservation has committed alongside industry partners to undertake a relocation of rhinos on a magnitude never done before – to relocate no less than 100 rhino from South Africa to safe havens in Botswana. By mid-2015, this relocation operation will take place with an assertive and elaborate anti-poaching force and strong commitment to save this species.

Our fundraising campaign, Zeros For Rhinos, will ensure this relocation initiative is a success; striving to rescue this treasured species from spiraling to extinction. What is gained is the knowledge that we all collectively stopped a species from meeting its maker. Great Plains Foundation, our non-profit partner, will raise the funds to do it, and every dollar counts.

As a fundraiser, Great Plains Conservation has contributed a limited number of safari bednights to the Great Plains Foundation. The cost of your stay in these three camps goes to the fundraising efforts of the Zeros for Rhinos initiative!  

Join us at Zarafa, Selinda or Selinda Explorers camps
an exclusive way of experiencing Africa while contributing to this tremendous initiative!
Included in this limited offer are value-add surprises in camp.**

Can’t come on safari? We’ll miss you, but you can still contribute to the Zeros for Rhinos campaign. Any amount counts and matters – $10 from many people will very quickly add up.

The BBC used our hippo hide in the filming of the “Wild Africa Series.”
