Responsible tourism: Family holiday to Botswana & Zimbabwe

Environment

For hundreds of years, the local communities in and around Botswana's Okavango Delta have used the wood of the sausage tree to craft their traditional mokoro (dugout canoes). The knowledge and skill have been passed down from generation to generation and, up until recently, has been a sustainable practice. With increasing numbers of people visiting the Delta each year, more mokoro are needed and as a direct result, more and more sausage trees are being felled and the sausage tree is sadly disappearing from the region. A traditional wooden mokoro will have to be replaced every five years, thereby placing increased pressure on the dwindling sausage tree supply.

Our partner in Botswana has established a project to encourage polers in the local communities to buy replica fiberglass mokoro’s, which have a lifespan of approximately ten years, are more stable and are produced without any negative affect to the environment. As such, sponsorship for each fiberglass mokoro is needed, and a portion of the tour cost will be donated to the project, but we also will offer our clients the opportunity to contribute to this worthwhile cause.

Throughout the tour we will be camping, providing minimal stress to the environment. We aim to take all rubbish with us, and leave the places we visit with no signs of our presence so that others can enjoy.

Community

We are committed to giving back to the local communities that we visit on our tours. We employ local people on our tours, as the people who live and work in the area have exceptional knowledge of the local wildlife, culture and environments, giving you the best insight into the area that you are visiting, and giving you the chance to meet and interact with the local people. By supporting and employing these people, we are helping to ensure that the environment, through tourism, is generating value for the community and encourages the local communities to protect the region from large-scale development and exploitation, whilst giving the local people an income and a financial reason to protect the environment. We use local suppliers wherever possible, for accommodation, meals and transport, and through this, the money you put in to the trip is ensured to be ploughed back into the local economy.
