Protecting Africa’s Wildlife

The Endangered Wildlife Trust (EWT) is a non-governmental, not-for-profit conservation organisation in South Africa. Founded in 1973, the EWT is dedicated to conserving Africa’s threatened species and ecosystems to the benefit of all people. With an expanding footprint throughout Southern and East Africa, the EWT carries out research and conservation action programmes and support sustainable natural resource management.

As one of South Africa’s leading biodiversity conservation organisations, the EWT identifies key factors threatening biodiversity, develops innovative methods and best-practice guidelines to reduce these threats, and promote a harmonious and sustainable co-existence for both people and wildlife.

Some of the EWT’s notable conservation programmes include:

  • African Crane Conservation Programme (ACCP)
  • Birds of Prey Programme (BoPP)
  • Carnivore Conservation Programme (CCP)
  • Drylands Conservation Programme (DCP)
  • Soutpansberg Protected Area (SPA)
  • Threatened Amphibian Programme (TAP)
  • Wildlife and Energy Programme (WEP)
  • Wildlife and Transport Programme (WTP)
  • Wildlife in Trade Programme (WiT)
  • Vultures for Africa (VFA)

Go2Africa’s Partnership with the Endangered Wildlife Trust

Go2Africa has pledged to donate $20 to the Endangered Wildlife Trust for every trip booked with us that includes a night at one of our selected Kruger camps*.

Our donations help provide funding for EWT’s conservation projects, including the tracking and monitoring equipment required to provide protection for endangered species such as the vulnerable African wild dog (‘painted wolves’) population found in this region.

As a not-for-profit conservation organisation, the EWT is completely dependent on donors. We are thrilled to support the EWT’s remarkable conservation efforts within one of Africa’s top Big 5 safari destinations.

* These 8 Kruger camps have been selected based on their proximity to EWT’s Kruger Park operations and commitment to sound conservation practices: Pafuri Tented Camp, Lion Sands Ivory Lodge, Lion Sands Narina Lodge, Lion Sands River Lodge, Lion Sands Tinga Lodge, Thornybush Game Lodge, Saseka Tented Camp and Simbambili Game Lodge.
