There are many incredible projects out there that have true impact on both conservation, community enrichment and female empowerment. Sometimes all three of these boxes are ticked, and those are the ones that The Safari Sisters love the most!
We will always go out of our way to support these projects as best we can. Consulting, marketing, and funding assistance is what we can offer at the moment. We hope that our sisterhood will continue to grow, and that how we can help these projects can grow too.

Mulberry Mongoose – Kate Wilson
Mulberry Mongoose is Kate Wilson’s brain child. They create jewellery inspired by life in the Zambian bush. So, it’s only fitting that with every piece of jewellery sold donates to antipoaching patrols to help remove the snare wire traps that kill and injure many of the area’s iconic wildlife.
By buying their accessories, you’re helping raise thousands of dollars for this vital work to save elephants, big cats and antelope.
Our most celebrated collection mixes snare wire collected by anti-poaching patrols with semiprecious stones, freshwater pearls and hand carved wooden beads. Snare wire is often made from steel and hard to work—many men can’t do it. But our Grace, a five foot tall mother of one, has learned to coil and flatten it to create beauty from brutality.

Photography for Conservation – Alice Peretie
“As cultural and conscious beings, we use sentiment to guide us, whatever the situation, thus attaching ourselves one way or another to our surroundings (of all types, emotional, environmental, social, professional..). I see photography as a powerful tool to raise awareness through beauty, through originality, through emotion or via any other mark of consciousness people apply on their surroundings; to engage with people and understand how they create their own links with the world. This is particularly relevant for nature conservation, bringing to light crucial topics such as diversity, socio-ecological resilience and the intertwined interests of human and non-human beings. I really hope you enjoy what I do – everything comes from the depths of my heart, promise!” – Alice Peretie
If you wish to purchase any of Alice’s prints, please click through to her webpage. 50% of the funds will be donated to various conservation projects she has either worked with or visited.
