- Embracing the Next Generation
Big Five’s new Precious Journeys collection helps kids explore the world – both its awesomeness and its challenges. They meet fascinating people working on real-world solutions, and experience the sustainability movement on a global basis. They learn about the trials facing Africa’s wildlife by visiting an orphanage for elephants and rhinos in Kenya; see what it takes to be an organic farmer in Costa Rica by helping pick coffee beans; and learn how to be a ranger in India’s tiger parks. These journeys are Designed for Kids by Kids at Heart .
- Exclusive Access with Sustainability
We work with and support organizations and entities that, like us, actively pursue sustainable goals. Through this, our clients benefit by gaining exclusive access to places and people not usually available to the general public in destinations including in Cambodia, Ecuador, Peru, Kenya, Guatemala and India. For example, we recently gave a grant for an anti-poaching patrol in northern Kenya to protect critically endangered rhinos. Our guests visiting there can see firsthand the work being done. Visit our nonprofit Spirit of Big Five Foundation for more about our projects.
