Commitment

We take our commitment to the environment and
the communities of Africa very seriously.

Coming from Namibia, a country that has one of the most successful community conservation track records, we are committed to non-consumptive utilization of wilderness environments that benefit ecology, communities,
wildlife, and visitors. Our aim is to ensure that your itinerary allows you to travel with a clear conscience, being in places where you have only a positive impact. We ensure that every destination adheres to a strict set of environmental standards.

A One-Percent Company

Piper & Heath dedicates 1% of our gross sales to social commitment. In this effort, we join the ranks of some the most successful and forward-thinking businesses on the globe. We consider this 1% an investment in sustainability rather than charity. These funds are used in various ways, but they are always focused on environmental and humanitarian work being done in developing countries. A large portion of the 1% is used in fundraising efforts where we leverage our spending to magnify the dollar value of the funds we send to Africa.

Examples of our fundraising efforts include:
CHEETAH CONSERVATION FUNDRAISERS
MISSION:WILDLIFE
THE LONG RIDE TO FREE THEM

Examples of past beneficiaries of our fundraising include:
CARE FOR WILD
CHEETAH CONSERVATION FUND
CHILDREN IN THE WILDERNESS

U.S.-Based Education

At Piper & Heath we recognize that we also have a responsibility to the youth of America when it comes to education. We love sharing our knowledge and passion for all things Africa. We regularly send representatives to schools where we give presentations on varying subjects from the socioeconomic challenges in contemporary Africa to the intricacies of African history. As Africa moves into the future and establishes itself in the global community, it is important that we as Africans make our individuality and personality known to the world at large. Through our talks with American youth, we hope that this generation will have a clearer understanding of Africa and its people.
