SOUTH AFRICA

Located adjacent to the third largest barrier reef in the world, Tiamo is an ambassador for Longitude 181Ëš, a group that promotes marine conservation awareness and education for guests and locals, and works to eradicate invasive lionfish a threat to marine ecology in the Caribbean.

Thanks to the efforts of the owners of Tswalu Kalahari, nearly 250,000 acres of land that was once denuded or overfarmed has been restored to its original arid savannah habitat. The property was recently recognized by the South African government as a nature reserve, ensuring that species such as lions, cheetahs, pangolins, and wild dogs have a vast, protected habitat in which to roam.
