We welcome local businessman Mark Fraenkle as our first economic strategic partner. Mark, who has many years operating high-end tourism ventures, will be developing specialised, immersive ecological and cultural experiences on our Tropical Wetlands reserve. These 2-3 day tours will include using the reserve as a Dark Sky location for observing the night sky, in-depth ecological and cultural experiences. The experiences will be ultra-low impact in nature, with the specific aim of creating deep connections between visitors and the landscape. Tours will be a mix of camping and overnight at the 3 secluded safari tents on the reserve.
Importantly, Mark is a local with local employees, thus generating much needed input stemming directly from Forever Wild’s reserves into the local economy.
