Responsible tourism: Tanzania big game safari, northern parks

Environment

We know our wildlife; in fact it is buried within the roots of our company and will always be so. It is essential that we preserve the natural habitat and home of all creatures, great and small. We contribute a percentage of each safari sold to wildlife conservation and always keep our eyes peeled for new projects to get involved with. Whenever possible we use accommodation that savours every drop of precious water, from using environmentally friendly toilets and to savouring rain water for washing, to using solar power heating.

Accommodation when travelling will vary, but we do try to be as environmentally friendly as possible, promoting the use of locally eco-lodges where we can. Please bear in mind that it is not always possible to find eco-friendly accommodation in some remote destinations; if this is the case then we make every effort to alert the management of the accommodation in question to ways of improving their services with the environment in mind. We try to use shared excursions and transfers, minimising the carbon emissions from the vehicles used. Kiota Camp and Chaka Camp are focused on preserving the natural ecology of the parks and the local economies of Tanzania. They both feature solar power, their refuse is recycled and they offset their fuel consumption with Carbon Tanzania, a locally-based NGO protecting pristine forest in Tanzania. Both management teams at the camps are activity involved in efforts to offset the camp's carbon footprint by planting indigenous trees - combined they have planted over 2,000 in the past 2 years!

We aim to reduce waste and our impact on the environment within our destinations, and at home in the UK where our offices are based. We work in partnership with the Borough of Brighton & Hove in an attempt to recycle and reuse as much as possible. Our clients are always advised on the best way to do this when away. We recommend using environmentally friendly shampoos, soaps and toiletries, to avoid leaving any litter (whether it is biodegradable or not).

Community

Where possible, we always use local suppliers in preference to others, whether this is in the purchase of provisions, accommodation, transport or equipment. Through the employment of our local ground operators, who use local guides and drivers, money is fed directly back into individual families and villages that would otherwise not benefit from tourism, as well as giving more jobs to local people. Great guiding is essential on wildlife adventures and few people know a place better than the locals. Even on specialist led trips, we still try our best to use the local guides alongside, we whole-heartedly do not believe in takin jobs from local populations for our own needs.

When it comes to accommodation, this trip incorporates lodges that are further away from the usual tourist trail, thus spreading the money spent by tourists further into the communities. this in turn shows the economic importance of the wildlife and natural assets of the area, which feeds back into helping the environment - win! The Maramboi Tented Camp are part of the Tanganyika Wilderness Camps who donates a percentage of each bed night sold at their camps to the Centro Emosoi who provide academic and vocational education to Massai girls of school age. They also donate to the Olmoti Clinic which is a rural medical installation which gives medical attention to the Massai in the north of Tanzania, providing primary attention, maternity care, family planning, vaccinations and vitamins for infants, ophthalmology and attention to patients with SIDA. Kiota Camp & Chaka Camp fabrics and furnishings are handcrafted by artisans in nearby Arusha.

We make sure tourists have the opportunity to buy local souvenirs and handicrafts, assisting further to contribute to their community, and always give support to local communities and conservation agencies. 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 min local cultures. Please note that we give a direct contribution of each safari sold to conserving the wildlife, helping local communities and supporting local conservation agencies.
