Photo tours that do good

We were founded by Penda Photo Tours, a company that offers photo tours around the world for photographers of all levels. At Penda, we believe that tourism has great potential for contributing to good causes, so Penda Photo Tours and Penda Trust work closely together. Wherever possible, our projects and our tours are integrated; where possible, clients are able to contribute to these projects, adding a rich dimension to the photography holiday. Moreover, Penda Photo Tours funds the main administration costs of the charity, allowing the Penda Trust to operate on a 100-percent-model. This means 100% of donations go towards funding projects. It also means that if you join a photo tour, you’ll automatically contribute to Penda Trust. All you have to do to make a difference is have the photo adventure of a lifetime!
