Africa Seminar

Please see the brochure describing this special offering.

In 2008, we (the Institute’s Public Programs and Energy and Environment Program) partnered with the African Wildlife Foundation ( for the first time to combine Aspen-traditional moderated seminar discussions with a world-class African safari experience. The seminar was a huge success, as you may have heard from Trustees and SOF members who participated.

Beginning with introductory sessions in Johannesburg, we will fly to Singita Game Reserves, one of the world’s most exclusive private safari destinations, where we have reserved two luxury lodges for four nights. (Conde Nast Traveler has twice ranked Singita a perfect 100 in its annual “The Best in the World” listings, a distinction only achieved by one other destination). See We will enhance the experience by inviting a variety of guest speakers and participants from the ranks of Africa’s leading scientists and civic leaders. The seminar will focus on the past 50 years of conservation, both in Johannesburg before the seminar, and in the bush.

Open to Society of Fellows.
