Responsible tourism: Tanzania small group holiday, Selous safari and Zanzibar

Environment

Selous Game Reserve is a fantastic spot to observe elephants, and the lodge used here has been at the centre of elephant protection and research in the reserve, and is represented by board membership within the Tanzanian Elephant Protection Society (TEPS). TEPS works to protect and conserve the elephant population of Selous through advocacy work, education, research and community outreach, ensuring that the elephant population continues to thrive in harmony with the local people.

We all know how travel can carry a large carbon footprint, but with no travel and broadening of oneís horizons, how can we all appreciate our planet in all of its glory? By travelling with a conscience thatís how. We send all of the non-biodegradable waste produced on this tour to Dar es Salaam for recycling. All non-biodegradable waste produced on the tour is bagged and sent to Dar es Salaam for recycling.

Drinking water at your lodge in Selous comes from a natural spring, and visitors are sold metal flasks to refill from filters around the lodge, the proceeds from which go directly to the Care With A View Foundation who support a number of charitable efforts including TEPS and Doctors on Safari, who provide medical care to isolated areas. All of the lodges used during the tour are run entirely on solar power.

Community

Whilst in Selous Game Reserve, the tour visits the communities that benefit from Doctors on Safari, which provides extensive medical and dental care to the area. Qualified doctors and medical students have been brought to the communities around Selous since 2011 and work to improve healthcare for people who might otherwise struggle to get medical attention. They have introduced new medical record systems, funded full time nursing staff, provided important new equipment and training, and most recently, provided over 1000 people with free dental treatment from experienced British dentists, whilst training 14 new dental officers in Districts where otherwise there was none.

TEPS, which has ties with your lodge in Selous, has been instrumental in identifying and working to mitigate points of conflict with human populations. Through advocacy work at the government level, this has led to significant changes in country-wide plans to support adversely affected communities including the development of major infrastructure.

The lodge used on this tour provides a soft loan system for its local staff, allowing them to gain independence through building their own homes. Several of the staff have also taken up ownership schemes which offer affordable, or sometimes even free, shares in the company.
