We get so many requests through our website (jonathanangelascott.com) about the possibility of joining us on safari or for photographic workshops. After carefully researching the market we are delighted to join hands with Wildlife Worldwide to lead a series of worldwide Signature Safaris staying at the finest properties, and working with the very best naturalist guides. Due to our television and writing commitments we are currently only able to accompany one or two Signature events each year. At some point in the future we will be leading Signature events to Alaska to spend time with the Brown Bears featured on the BBC’s ‘Great Bear Week’, as well as leading a safari to Southern Tanzania and Maasai Mara in Kenya. We will also be participating in Wildlife Worldwide's annual Festival of Wildlife that has proved such an enormous success since its inception at Governor's Camp in the Maasai Mara during April 2004. The Festival moves to Madagascar in 2008, and Tanzania in 2009 and we hope to see you then, if not before. We have made some great friends on these trips and seen the total passion for the natural world that both Wildlife Worldwide and their clients have. We are therefore proud to announce the creation of our own collection of ‘Signature Safaris’ in conjunction with Wildlife Worldwide, in which we will lead and accompany a small group of like-minded enthusiasts on the trip of a lifetime. To us travel means the chance to travel with old friends - and to meet new ones - combined with the challenge of trying to record our adventures in words and pictures. But it is not just about photography - it is about connecting to different realities, different cultures - the temples and the wildlife - the rich diversity of life. Our aim in inviting you to join us on safari - whether back home in Africa or around the globe - is to share with you our love of life - and the life we love. Jonathan & Angie Scott Signature Safaris Responsible Tourism – Everyone’s Responsibility Responsible Tourism is not a new phenomenon for Wildlife Worldwide. We have been actively involved in wildlife conservation and community projects since we started. However, the recent rise in global awareness regarding world climate and associated problems has brought all these issues to the forefront of everyone’s mind – and rightly so. At Wildlife Worldwide we publish a Responsible Tourism policy (a copy of which can be found on our website). We have always approached our business from a Responsible Tourism perspective and endeavour only to use ground agents and lodges who share our philosophy. Throughout the year we endeavour to seek out and support wildlife conservation organisations and their community based projects. This happens through a number of activities; the organisation of specialist fund-raising presentation evenings at our lovely barn conversion offices in Hampshire, members of the Wildlife Worldwide team individually raising money through marathon running and other sponsorship events and most significantly through involvement with local communities and conservationists at our annual Festival of Wildlife initiated in 2004. Extremely significant and beneficial for wildlife has been our work with The David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation (www.davidshepherd.org). Over the past four years we have raised in excess of £53,000 for the David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation and their invaluable wildlife conservation work. Our Festival of Wildlife also raises considerable amounts for local conservation and community projects. Of course, we also offer everyone the opportunity to offset their carbon emission by contributing to Climate Care – www.climatecare.org. Climate Care offset the carbon created by your air journey by investing your money into tangible, global projects, some of which will also significantly improve the lives of local people. Responsible Tourism In recognition of our responsible tourism values, we have been awarded 3-star status in AITO’s Responsible Tourism scheme. We are very proud of our association with the David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation. You can read more on the following pages. We offer you the opportunity to offset your aviation emissions.
