What is Mantis Impact Experiences, and why was it started?
Passionate Conservationists within Mantis strive to create sustainable adventures and celebrate the locality of each Mantis destination. For decades, they have been working alongside and within Mantis’ hospitality network, bringing to life the groups mantra: Man And Nature Together Is Sustainable.
Mantis Impact Experiences was created from our need as a brand to intimately connect our current guests, who are accustomed to Mantis Hospitality, to our brand pillars of conservation and education.
Mantis Impact Experiences was also created from a desire of our guests wanting to recalibrate their place in the world through fresh experiences and authentic connections with nature and others.
We felt the best way to do this was to create an alternative, conservation-focused travel experience. Mantis Impact Experience is a fully immersive nature experience that embraces conservation principles to further enhance participants ….. unlike any other. Our guests can partake in hands-on experiences in conservation, whilst still enjoying the comforts of Mantis hospitality.
This is travel out of the ordinary; we offer the adventurous traveller seeking an immersive experience the opportunity to make a real impact for conservation.
Who are the people behind the scenes?
Mantis Impact Experiences is run by a small group of passionate conservationists. With a collective experience of over 20 years in various conservation fields, each impact experience has been curated with a conservation-first approach, and the utmost attention to deal.
What can you, as a traveller, expect from a Mantis Impact Experience?
Mantis Impact Experiences have been expertly designed to educate and inspire eco-savvy travellers to tackle conservation issues head-on, by getting their hands dirty! This means that anyone – young, old, inexperienced, experienced, and from near or far – can participate and not only learn about the current global conservation issues, but to better equip them to create awareness and educate others in their own communities.
