Great Plains Conservation is a South Africa-based conservation organization that manages several wildlife reserves in Kenya and Botswana.[1] The group currently operates six reserves, which include luxury lodges and tent camps. It works together with local governments and community groups to promote low-density, environmentally conscious tourism, supplying economic incentives for the protection of wildlife.[2]

Great Plains Conservation was founded in 2006 by a group of conservationists and filmmakers. Its CEO is Dereck Joubert.[3]
