East Africa

Through annual mission trips with Nets for Africa, Ker & Downey provides thousands of blood tests and doctor's visits and distributes clothing and supplies, including thousands of mosquito nets.


Botswana

For each booking Ker & Downey contributes to the Rhinos Without Borders initiative. This project aims to translocate 100 rhinos from South Africa, where poaching is increasing at an alarming rate, to the comparative safety of neighboring Botswana.


WildAid

WildAid uses its global reach to educate consumers on the severe impact of products made from animals to endangered populations and encourages change with a simple message: “When the buying stops, the killing can, too.” Ker & Downey supports their mission as a sponsor of their exclusive stateside events.


Ecuador

Galo Plaza Lasso Foundation, administered by Hacienda Zuleta, promotes conservation and education in the local community through traditional arts. For every client traveling to Ecuador, Ker & Downey contributes to the community library project.


Cambodia

Dedicated to the education and enrichment of Cambodia’s youth, a network of schools supported by donations from Ker & Downey travelers provides Khmer language books, English classes, and school supplies for rural communities across Cambodia.


South Africa

Grootbos Private Nature Reserve trains people from local communities and finds work for them in fynbos landscaping and horticulture. A tree is planted in Grootbos’ Ker & Downey Forest for each of our clients traveling to South Africa.
