Understanding Our Passion
Dereck Joubert, CEO of Great Plains Conservation, and his wife, Beverly Joubert, are not only co-founders of the company, they are also acclaimed wildlife filmmakers and National Geographic Explorers-in-Residence, who have created awarding winning films in the Great Plains reserves, many before the camps were even built. They have made 25 films for National Geographic, including ‘The Last Lions’ which has reached over 350 million people. During your stay, you might be lucky enough to encounter some of the characters from their films, including Ma Di Tau from The Last Lions, who has since become an ambassador for lions and their conservation, worldwide. Beverly Joubert has also specialized in wildlife photography for nearly 30 years, with images in a dozen or more National Geographic Magazines, 10 books and thousands of articles around the world. Great Plains is the perfect location for capturing remarkable animal behaviour and the untamed natural beauty of Africa’s wilderness.
