Our logo is adapted from a painting by Phillip Dlamini, 1998, of a purple crested turaco. In traditional Swazi dress, the red feathers feature in the royal headdress, so this bird illustration is not only a symbol for wildlife conservation, but also of cultural heritage.

All Out Africa runs a number of conservation and community projects by offering people from around the world the opportunity to participate in the projects as a travel experience of value. Anyone between the ages of 17 and 65 years can join and All Out organizes all your food, accommodation, transport, equipment, activities as well as daily guidance and support. A project fee is needed to help cover these costs and support the needs of the project. Visit their website to find out more.
