Great Plains Conservation was a three–time winner at the prestigious, annual Safari Awards in London on January 30th. Great Plains Conservation camps, lodges and experiences were shortlisted for five awards, which they either won or were runner–up in their categories.
This is the second year that Great Plains Conservation has won Best Safari Accommodation Group in Africa. These awards help cement the company’s ethos of Conservation Tourism: 100% of all profits made by the group through tourism are put back into conservation and community projects.
Great Plains Conservation’s Zarafa Camp, Botswana, also won four Best Safari Destination Awards from The Robb Report, Relais & Châteaux, Forbes and Andrew Harper’s Hideaway Report.
Zarafa Camp in Botswana is the crown jewel of Great Plains Conservation. The camp uses 100% biogas from waste food for cooking and heat, to make the camp one of the greenest on the planet. Click here to read about the camp’s recent awards.
For the first time since the Safari Awards began in 2008, a canoe safari has been shortlisted for the Best Mobile Safari. This year’s runner–up, the Selinda Canoe Trail, is challenging the traditional driving and walking mobile safaris after four seasons of operation.
