Born Free Foundation - Keep Wildlife in the Wild

Kuoni Travel UK

Since 2003 worldwide travel company Kuoni has been a firm supporter of The Born Free Foundation.  With a team of people who are passionate about raising money and awareness for us, they have done everything from host a Born Free movie night under the stars, sponsored walks to a monthly lottery.    

As part of Kuoni's ongoing support they have created a unique safari holiday, which combines seeing big game with visiting the site where Joy Adamson lived and where she and her husband George released the lioness Elsa into the wild.

Generous donations from Kuoni

Big Cat Rescue Centre in South Africa

Kuoni has donated over £5000 towards building a new enclosure at the Big Cat Rescue Centre in the Shamwari Wildlife Reserve, South Africa.  A retirement home for nine rescued lions and leopards, award-wining Shamwari is one of the biggest private game reserves in South Africa.

Lion Proof Bomas

In order to prevent attacks on livestock at night, Kuoni has helped construct four lion-proof bomas in Kenya.

Manyatta Primary School, Kenya

Kuoni has helped to completely rebuild Manyatta Primary School, building a small library, two classrooms and providing books, desks and chairs. The pupil enrolment has increased and the long-term benefit to the wider community has been significant.

Equipment to make a difference   

Money raised from Kuoni events provided a generator, project screen, DVD player and portable PA system to help aid a conservation education programme in local communities. Kuoni’s Elaine Foster delivered the equipment herself to the Nairobi office.

Anti-snaring in Kenya

Hundreds of snares have now been removed and destroyed, and local people have been encouraged to support the protection of wildlife and anti-poaching as part of The Born Free Youth for Conservation project in Kenya, which Kuoni has sponsored.
