The experience contributes to ending poverty in all its forms, everywhere through the partner conservancies of Shipwreck Lodge - the Puros Conservancy established in May 2000 and the Sesfontein Conservancy established in July 2003. Between the two conservancies they cover over 6,000 km2 and are predominantly made up of Ovahimba and Herero people.

By partnering with the conservancies Shipwreck Lodge has the opportunity to recruit lodge staff from these conservancies thus assisting with sustaining of multiple households. The business has also purchased hardy 4x4 vehicles to assist the conservancy with wildlife and environmental management.

In their capacity as landlords, the Conservancies are paid monthly fees based on 8% of turnover of the lodge business. Conservancies therefore also have a vested interest in the overall success of the lodge and the support they provide to the tourism business.

Enhance your African experience with a 3 or 4 night stay in Cape Town to allow sufficient time to experience all the city has to offer and to experience the diversity that is Africa.

Cape Town is the most popular tourist destination in South Africa due to its good climate, culture and scenic beauty. The city has several well-known natural features that attract tourists, most notably Table Mountain, for panoramic views of the city and Cape Point the dramatic headland at the end of the Cape Peninsula. Many tourists also drive along Chapman's Peak Drive, a scenic mountainous drive with views of the Atlantic Ocean and nearby mountains. A visit to Boulders Beach to see the adorable penguin colony is a favorite amongst visitors. The Cape Winelands offers wine estate tours and wine tastings, and scenic towns with their architectural heritage of Cape Dutch style buildings.
