As the world battles to come to terms with the human and economic impact of Covid-19, we are acutely aware of the challenges facing communities and conservation projects in Africa. Throughout the pandemic The Royal Portfolio Foundation has continued to support critical community and conservation projects including counter-poaching initiatives at Royal Malewane and various Covid-19 Relief Feeding Schemes.
For those interested in travelling to South Africa with a purpose we have created a version of our Royal Itinerary focused on Foundation-based activities.
At The Royal Portfolio we believe passionately in investing in Africa. In keeping with our Purpose and Values, we strive to uplift local communities, promote conservation and protect the environment.
Sustainable tourism is about ensuring a long term future for African tourism based on partnership and community benefit. Revenue from tourism should be used to ensure sustainability of the industry to educate and to create jobs and to conserve Africa’s precious wildlife and spectacular landscapes for generations to come.
The Royal Portfolio Foundation was established by the Biden Family in order to give back to our local communities by contributing towards various upliftment and conservation projects within our Three Crowns sustainability framework.
Each of The Royal Portfolio’s properties supports a number of projects relevant to their unique location and particular situation.
