WHY HERE?

GIRAFFE CONSERVATION FOUNDATION

Over the past three decades, the giraffe population has dropped by almost 30%, to approximately 111,000 in the wild. The Giraffe Conservation Foundation (GCF) is the only NGO in the world that concentrates solely on the conservation and management of giraffes in the wild throughout Africa. The GAF aims to secure and increase current giraffe numbers in places like Namibia, where hunting and decreased rainfall pose significant threats to the desert giraffe.

WHY NOT? Pair philanthropy and luxury with the Revel EARTH

HOANIB VALLEY CAMP

In partnership with the Giraffe Conservation Foundation and Hoanib Valley Camp, Natural Selection creates a strong and consistent presence in northwest Namibia to monitor desert giraffes and further understand population dynamics of this southern giraffe sub-species. At the brand-new Hoanib Valley Camp, guests can get hands-on with the conservation project and assist researchers by capturing photographs of, and then working with experts to identify, the giraffes they encounter. The images are incorporated into vital data mapping of this vulnerable species.

FENG SHUI + TRAVEL©

WOOD, FIRE, EARTH, METAL AND WATER

Good Feng Shui is about aligning the five elements and “qi” (energy) in a positive way in an effort to foster good luck, enhance well-being and improve any environment. Peaceful and grounding, EARTH represents the “in-between” seasons like late fall’s Indian Summer and Mud Season in early Spring.

The EARTH element also fosters a nurturing, reliable and even-keeled nature. Travel infused with plenty of opportunities to create social, economic and environmental impact may support strong, healthy relationships and feelings of security. It may bring us back to center, nourish and reassure us, as well as provide stable support for all of our endeavors.

At the American Revel Traveler, we invite you to tap into the power of the Revel EARTH. Here we promote balance between our right to indulge and our duty to contribute to others and the world around us. We identify luxury and adventure companies, destinations and experiences that demonstrate a solid commitment to animals, humans and the planet. And in the absence of a direct connection, we aim to pair well-deserved indulgence with solid charitable programs – in the United States or anywhere in the world.
