About Us

Our vision / Protecting wild places and providing proudly African solutions to a global challenge.

Frontier is actively engaged in conservation efforts across Africa. Designing, delivering and sustaining bespoke solutions that deliver real change and help to protect the continent’s wild places now and into the future.

Our teams have deployed to and worked in some of the most complex and demanding environments and have achieved results each and every time. We take pride in our willingness to go where others won’t and our ability to achieve what others can’t.

At the heart of this approach is a team of dedicated professionals that bring together the very best technical expertise, regional experience, and understanding of how to deliver impact in Africa.

Our Values

Frontier is underpinned by a culture of core values that are shared throughout our team. These values inform our collective decision-making, guide our actions, and provide a meaningful sense of community to our global network of talent.


We hold ourselves accountable to the people and communities which we work alongside; as they are the ultimate custodians of Africa’s wild places. However, it is essential that we balance their needs with broader conservation objectives that take into account the long-term sustainability of Africa’s critically important ecosystems, which we all depend upon.


Collaborating with host governments, NGOs, as well as the private sector is a cornerstone of our work. In this way we are bringing diverse perspectives and experiences together to achieve innovative and inclusive solutions to our partners’ shared challenges. Working collectively, we are able to have exponential impact throughout Africa.


Integrity is the foundation on which we build all our relationships. We are committed to operating transparently and consistently with all our stakeholders. From internal management practices, to how we deliver our services, we demonstrate an uncompromising adherence to ethical and honest behaviour, communication and professional standards.


We pride ourselves in the professionalism of our people – leading by example at all times. Our approach fosters discipline, motivation and passion, which brings out the best in us as well as those we work with. This relentless pursuit of excellence serves to support our partners, and the conservation community at large, to achieve consistently higher standards.


Respect for people, their cultures, norms and fundamental Human Rights is critically important to us. We understand that there are a multitude of stakeholders involved in the protection of wild places and our solutions recognise the value of local knowledge, reflect the interests of diverse communities, and lead to mutually beneficial outcomes.
