2017 was a successful year for GROW AFRICA, our responsible tourism foundation, a year of growth and achieving significant goals. We are proud of our successes and look forwarding to impacting further positive change in the areas our partners Jenman African Safaris and Hideaways operates in. To continue doing so successfully, we decided to redefine our identity in a way that resonates with our founding principles but also reflects our growth and evolution.
The Grow Africa Foundation as a self-sustaining foundation that collaborates with local communities and partners to create and support sustainable social and environmental projects.
Grow Africa as an inspirational foundation instilling a sense of purpose and pride for Jenman African Safaris and Hideaways, as well as their employees, clients, and partners.
