Responsible tourism: Botswana safari holiday on a shoestring


Our ground operators have been working in Botswana for many years and understand the need to ensure that they give back to the local communities and leave as small an impact on the environment as possible.

They actively promote recycling of all waste products on both their safaris and in their offices. This means that all glass, plastic tin and paper products are separated and delivered to a collection depot in Maun where they are sent for recycling.

Driving is a key part of any safari so they ensure that all their used engine oil is collected by Champs Botswana where it is either recycled or responsibly disposed of, helping to minimise the impact of the vehicles on the environment.

All staff are encouraged to commit to their recycling initiative and through education and training they are becoming the captains of this initiative within their communities.

Serviced safaris spend 30% of the duration of the safari on local community owned and managed properties. This means that any income raised goes directly to the property or park to help maintain it and the animals within it.


Our ground agents recognise that their employees are their most valuable asset. Each has an individual training and goal oriented program to ensure that they can progress and develop to the best of the their ability within the company. Wages are paid directly to local employees and local tradesmen (eg polers) are used wherever possible. All park entry fees are paid directly to the communities in and around them.

They also run a sponsored community football team and have donated a piece of land to be used as a community vegetable garden in Maun and plan to use some of the produce on the mobile Safaris that they run. The remaining produce will be sold at local markets and the profits returned to the community.

They are also aware of the significant toll that HIV and Aids have taken on Botswana. Recognising that behaviour change and education about the disease is its best prevention, they have sponsored the production of over 500 copies of the HIV & Aids handbook for distribution to local communities to help make them make positive health changes.

Our ground agents also sponsor Aglow International which help to care for Botswana's elderly community.
