For the past seven years we have been offering our clients the opportunity to take part in The Ultimate Charity Initiative.
We ask for a voluntary contribution on our tailor-made and escorted tours invoices. It’s a small amount, but it makes a world of difference. Already over $385,000 has been raised to positively benefit local people, wildlife and natural habitats across the globe.
