Affiliates of Leo
We want to say a massive thank you to all the organisations that have pledged to sponsor and help us. You are not only helping LEO but all of the wildlife that LEO works to conserve.
When coming to LEO, you will likely need some form of travel insurance. Thanks to our latest agreement with World Nomads, now you'll be able to book it directly from our website.
World Nomads is specialized in adventure travels, sports and activities, and its insurance covers everything we do here at LEO, offering high refunds in case of accident. You can refer to World Nomads' website for further details and benefits of the insurance.
We would be grateful if you book it with the form in this page.
How do you clean your home? Here at LEO our conservation efforts go beyond the Park in which we operate. We try to make a difference in many different aspects of our daily lives. That is why a few months ago we started using cleaning products from a South African company called Mrs Martin's.
Their products are readily biodegradable and do not contain any toxic chemicals, only active “good” bacteria to digest organic matter. This means they do not pollute water systems.
We are very happy with their products as they clean exceptionally well. This switch had also lead us to drastically reduce our plastic consumption as we refill our containers at their facilities! A great way to take care of our environment!
Each of us can make a difference! Start today!
Lush is an organisation that sell 'fresh, handmade products' in stores worldwide.
Their products use only vegan and vegetarian recipes. They produce toiletries and products that use little to no plastic, the products that do have plastic containers can all be recycled or brought in store to redeem a free face mask.
In line with our sustainable policy and anti-plastic campaign we are trying to introduce our volunteers to a plastic and sustainable lifestyle so we at LEO have formed a partnership with Lush to create a pack for our volunteers to have during their time here, which will introduce them to the products and offer an alternative to products sold in plastic.
Purchase your own starter pack with us for R650, this includes: 1 cotton bag, 1 shampoo bar, 1 deodorant bar, 1 soap bar, 1 body lotion bar, toothpaste tablets in a tin to store them in.
