On all our safaris to Botswana we employ local guides and staff thus contributing directly to the local community. Part of the tour visits the Khwai community area which is managed by the Khwai Village, with all proceeds going into the development of the village.
Our group safaris take between 9 and 12 passengers per vehicle thus minimizing the carbon emissions per tourist, compared to that of a private safari. The Hotel and Tourism Association of Botswana manage the campsites that are used for these safaris and there are very strict rules imposed regarding litter and waste disposal, with hefty fines if these rules are not adhered to. No fixed structures are used on this trip, thus minimizing the impact on the environment.
We aim to minimise our impact on the environment as much in the UK as we would do in any of our destination countries. We do this through recycling of any office waste including, paper, plastic, cans, glass, refuse, in partnership with the Borough of Brighton and Hove. The purpose of our safaris is to contribute to local populations, communities and projects. We give our travellers advice on how to interact with the local population, flora and fauna in order to minimise any negative impact. We advise people not to bargain just for the sake of it and because it is the “thing to do”; you should pay what you feel the object is worth to yourself and the vendor, bearing in mind local cultures, society and standard of living.
This wildlife tour operator is staffed by ex-guides who have firsthand knowledge of the regions they visit. They believe it’s important to escape the bustle of today’s world, where everything is done so quickly, and get back to basics in an environment you have little control over. Delivering inspirational wildlife experiences offers a different challenge every day and the team are passionate about managing travellers’ time to get the most out of their trip. They feel their specialist knowledge puts them in a truly privileged position and they put back into the economy and wildlife as much as they can.
