Conservation Efforts

AndBeyond is internationally known and awarded for their conservation efforts, andBeyond island properties partnered with the Africa Foundation to form “Ocean without Borders”. As Mnemba Island is a protected nesting site for green turtles you might have the chance to see turtle laying eggs and hatching in the peak season from April to August (however, laying can occur year-round). Within nine weeks, the beaches are filled with tiny turtle hatchlings.

We match you with the most knowledgeable and skilled naturalist guides and meticulously craft your itinerary with the finer details of VIP airport visa service, private transport, necessary permits, and luxury accommodation among many others.

We tread as lightly as possible, use no plastic on safari and provide eco-friendly meal hampers with BPA-free stainless-steel water bottles for your comfort. We are committed to helping East African communities through considered and respectful tourism – and give back as much as we can. That includes carbon offset options, as well as community donations and tree planting. Our commitment to sustainable tourism ensures that African ecosystems thrive and benefit future generations.

We have you covered.
