G Adventures Celebrates Jane Goodall’s Birthday With New Gifting Campaign

Open Jaw

To celebrate the life and legacy of Dr. Jane Goodall as she turns 85 on 3APR, G Adventures has announced a gifting campaign that will deliver $85 donations for every Jane Goodall Collection tour booked across the globe between 1-5APR.   

The birthday donations, made by G Adventures at no cost to travellers, will support the work of the Jane Goodall Institute of Canada, which was founded in 1977 to encourage protection of chimpanzees and to recognize the central role people play in the well-being of animals and habitat.

“It is an absolute honour to have our company affiliated with the work of Dr. Goodall and her team of champions, but even more, to support her vision of raising awareness and respect among travellers,” said G Adventures founder Bruce Poon Tip. “Ever since I first saw her picture on the cover of National Geographic as a child and read about her passion and purpose, she has inspired me as a leader, an explorer and an entrepreneur.”

A few of the eligible itineraries in the Jane Goodall Collection by G Adventures include: 

  • Experience Borneo 14 days round trip from Kota Kinabalu, from $2,524 per person, air separate. Go for a dip in the awe-inspiring Wind and Clearwater caves of Gunung Mulu National Park. Opt to go snorkeling on the island haven of Pulau Tiga. Observe native orangutans at a rehabilitation centre in Sungai. Take a river safari in search of wildlife and visit the nearby oxbow lake with a professional guide to seek out proboscis monkeys, pygmy elephants, macaques, and gibbons.
  • Highlights of Madagascar – 14 days round trip from Antananarivo, from $2,062 per person, air separate. Isolated from mainland Africa for millions of years, most of Madagascar’s plants, reptiles and primates are found nowhere else. Join expert guides to observe its famed and diverse lemurs, walk through ancient baobab forests in search of wild geckos, chameleons, birds and insects, swim in hidden blue canyon pools, and spot migrating whales. You’ll learn about local life and still have time to relax at the beach.
  • Galapagos Island Hopping with Quito – Nine days round trip from Quito, from $2,415 per person, air separate.Highlights include a visit to the Charles Darwin Research Station, staying in the G Adventures-supported community guesthouse on Floreana and taking guided walks to observe native birds and other wildlife, viewing breeding white-tip reef sharks, marine iguanas, blue-footed boobies, rays, and penguins, plus a visit to the Giant Tortoise Breeding Center.
  •  Kenya Safari Experience – Eight days round trip from Nairobi, from $4,299 per person, air separate. This upgraded adventure in Kenya is the ideal introduction to safari life. Ride on daily wildlife safari drives in the shadow of Mt Kilimanjaro, be introduced to the Maasai way of life, and learn about elephant conservation from the Kenya Wildlife Service. With endless plains teeming with wildlife and dotted with acacia trees, you won’t want to blink.
  • Amazon Riverboat Adventure – Nine days round trip from Lima, from $2,279 per person, air separate. Hop aboard a riverboat and experience the Amazon in style. Led by an Amazon Reserve naturalist guide, your cruise will include daily excursions by motorized skiff designed to reveal the exotic wildlife that calls the rainforest home — with any luck you’ll spot sloths, toucans, or pink dolphins. And, with plenty of time for exploration in Pacaya–Samiria National Reserve, you'll have the chance to experience the jungle up close.
