Responsible tourism: Kilimanjaro & Meru trekking holiday

Environment

The contribution of National Park fees supports the outstanding conservation efforts of the Tanzanian National Parks. Our profits are also channeled towards contribute to pioneering conservation projects by donating the compensation for carbon offsetting to our charity partners in Tanzania.

Many travel companies offer their customers the chance to offset the carbon emissions from their international flights too but we have gone a step further and offer to share this cost with you 50/50. If you select to compensate for your international flight emissions when you book with us then what you put in, we put in too!

To ensure that we are offering ground-breaking itineraries and are always keeping up-to-date with the latest developments abroad, our UK staff travel regularly to our destinations. This ‘work’ also leaves a carbon footprint and we compensate for all our staff travel by donating carbon-mitigating funds to our charity partners.

Our UK office takes a leading role in setting the standards for an environmentally friendly work environment. We work with local government to recycle our waste and continually look for new ways to be greener.

Community

An intrepid undertaking, you will share this African adventure with your local team of professional staff all of whom receive unrivalled, fair salaries and are not reliant on tipping. You will gain a deeper appreciation of the mountains and the local people who make their living from them. We pay our porters the highest salaries in the history of Tanzanian trekking expeditions. Ask us for more details.

We employ local support staff who we pay fair wages, often exceeding government standards which we still consider too low, and thereby remove the reliance on tipping from travellers for livelihoods.

Our accommodation choices make use of locally owned properties where possible and often include adventurous, authentic choices such as local homestays which therefore involve local people and their communities in the very fabric of our holidays.

We encourage all our travellers to research local customs and read your trip notes before you depart to ensure you are conscientious and respectful in a different culture.

In most cases we strongly recommend that you do not give money to children beggars. If begging is a successful enterprise, parents are encouraged to forsake their children’s education in pursuit of this opportunity.

Talk to us about packing for a purpose and see if you can get involved by making a small material contribution to the communities you are visiting. We have developed partnerships with charities and accommodations throughout Tanzania and are constantly working to extend our reach with the help of our travellers.
