If the idea of another routine game lodge experience raises little more than a sigh, then this is just the answer for you.
Tailor-made Conservation Conferences and Incentives
During conferences and incentives at the lodge Shepherd's is frequently approached by groups enquiring about participation in conservation exercises.
This idea prompted Shepherds to integrate conservation with the guest experience. In short they are now able to involve guests in the process of routine data gathering to determine condition and genetic mapping amongst other things.

Conference requirements frequently conflict with the routine private game lodge programme. It has therefore become necessary for Shepherds to tailor make each experience to suit the requirements of a particular conference or incentive. This often results in game drives being amended or cancelled to permit adequate session time.

For this reason Shepherds would welcome the opportunity of presenting a tailor-made itinerary where the client is not required to pay for activities not participated in.
