Meet Titchy - new Tshirt design coming soon...

We are very excited to give you a sneak peak of our brand new Tshirt logo: Titchy Tembo. By the end of the month you will be able to purchase Titchy Tembo Tshirts, as well as hoodies, ladies Tshirts and children's Tshirts in a range of new colours. Tembo is the Swahili word for Elephant. In many cases when an elephant is poached illegally for its ivory it leaves behind a vulnerable orphan - a titchy tembo. We hope that by buying these Tshirts and wearing them with pride we can raise a significant sum of money for our partner charities - from anti-poaching dogs protecting elephants and rhinos from poachers across Africa, to elephant rescue and rehabilitation projects like...

Guess the life-expectancy of a rhino that crosses from South Africa into Mozambique?

12-24 hours. Less than a day. This vast open border is where the South African rangers have to stop their protection work and Mozambique, poor after decades of civil war, doesn't have the resources to protect them.

Education, financial compensation for damage to crops and helping communities benefit from the wildlife's presence are all crucial long-term goals. In the short-term the...

T shirt promotion video with Save the Elephants

We want to pay for a three man squad for a year.  Hope you enjoy it! Look out for that wobbling bottom!

Saba inspires at the RGS

Real Africa was delighted to return to the Royal Geographical Society on the evening of May 3rd 2016 to support Saba Douglas-Hamilton on the last night of her UK tour, A Life with Elephants. Just like Real Africa's 15th Anniversary event at the RGS, where Saba was our special guest, the venue was a sell-out with a queue around the block at one point! Saba was available during both the interval and after the event to meet guests and as always she spoke for far longer than scheduled recounting childhood stories, news from the field regarding modern day conservation and about her life at Elephant Watch Camp in Samburu, Kenya. Inspiring stuff!  Our cotton Tshirts, sold in aid of Save...
