The 1990s brainchild of our original partner, Tim Best Travel, joined in the early days by a handful of specialists such as Cazenove & Loyd, Tusk’s ‘Travel Partners’ is now a dedicated collection of sixteen of the most experienced operators in Africa.
The beneficiaries of their collective generosity are far-reaching. Each of our Travel Partners has found their own very individual way to support our work, bursaries for Masai students at the Koiyaki Guide School, vital contributions to Kasanka National Park in Zambia and from The Ultimate Travel Company everything from annual ‘flying dentist’ visits to communities within the Lewa Conservancy to a classic matching donor scheme involving their clients travelling to all four corners of the world. No matter how busy you are or where you are thinking of travelling to next, nothing could be simpler than putting something back with a click of a mouse. Check out our Travel Partners below and we guarantee your next holiday won’t be a guilt trip!
British Airways is a proud supporter of Tusk, providing logistical support and flights to the organisation. The airline offers flights to over 30 cities across Africa, including many destinations in East Africa close to the Trust’s projects, such as Nairobi, Dar-es-Salaam and Entebbe.

This year's Tusk Conservation Awards are, for me, an opportunity to recognise and to highlight some of the remarkable – and courageous – conservation work being undertaken across Africa.
