Day trips

We take kids on a 10 hour guided safari into the Kruger National Park to learn about conservation and tourism.

Weekend trips

We take kids on weekend excursions into the Kruger National Park to immerse them in nature.


We support children's learning with an environmental curriculum to equip them with knowledge and skills.


Conservation through education

We take kids from communities close to Kruger National Park on day and weekend excursions to experience conservation first hand.

We also provide nature conservation education at their schools.

The Sefapane Foundation and Trust

Established in 2005, the foundation is the brainchild of Joris Bertens, the MD of Sefapane Lodge and Safaris. Passionate about conservation and children, he says, “we need to get kids into nature, not to entertain young people but to give them a look at their future."

Having been a major player in the tourism industry in Phalaborwa in South Africa's Limpopo Province for nearly 30 years,  Sefapane’s commitment to educate young people about nature and provide the foundational skills that will prepare them for a future in tourism, conservation or hospitality is well-known. “We have found a way to give back. There is a lot of need, but also a lot of talent."


We need your support!

Help us reach our target of taking  1500 kids to Kruger in 2019!
