Responsible tourism: Southern Africa adventure holiday, 18 days
This 18 day tour is enjoyed on one of our privately owned expedition vehicles purpose built for overland driving. The trucks all comply with strict Euro IV emissions control regulations set by the EU and the vehicles are all checked and maintained by our drivers, employed from within east or southern Africa. Our trucks are all equipped with long range fuel tanks, spare parts, tools and maintenance equipment leaving them self-sufficient for long periods of time.
Although we stay in mainly locally owned hotels there are opportunities on this tour to bush camp, such as when we travel to the Okavango Delta. We make sure in this case that we leave no rubbish or waste behind in order to conserve the environment.
Throughout this trip food is purchased from local markets and supermarkets taking in to account the food in season. Any waste, food or otherwise is destroyed in an environmentally friendly way and recycling is implemented where there are facilities available.
Our Africa tours are committed to educating our passengers with the local traditions and this tour allows the chance to meet the Himba Tribe in Kamanjab. This a very humbling excursion, and there are opportunities to support these communities in some way.
Tour Leaders encourage travellers to donate school materials or clothing however money and food is never given directly to the community. This is to ensure that our activity does not disrupt the local economy and that we do not increase begging in society.
During this trip we stay in mainly owned hotels and guesthouses. In Maun and the Fish River Canyon, we also have the opportunity to stay in rondavels. These are traditional African cabins giving our passengers to have a truly authentic experience.
