This trip can be tailor made throughout the year to suit your requirements
As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) holiday so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.
PlanetWe aim to reduce waste and our impact on the environment within our destinations, and at home in the UK, where our offices our 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)
Whenever possible we use accommodation that savours every drop of precious water; from using environmentally friendly flushing 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 service with the environment in mind.
We try to use shared excursions and transfers, minimising the carbon emissions from the vehicles used.
PeopleAll of our trips are conducted by local guides and drivers who specialise in this region of Africa. Through the employment of local staff, money is fed directly back into individual families and villages that would otherwise not benefit from tourism. Wherever possible we use locally-run and managed accommodation; lodging does vary however and can be in environmentally low impact eco-lodges or luxury camps.
Gomarezhou is still developing as a safari destination, which we see as a positive, through visiting the park you will helping the conservation effort and the development of sustainable tourism in this area. Chilo Gorge Lodge employs local people and works alongside the local community to boost the local economy and provide permanent employment. The founding father of Chilo Gorge lodge is Clive Stockil, is born and bred in the area and is qualified as a Zimbabwean Professional Guide since 1973. He is universally renowned as an authority on the lowveld communities and their wildlife and he continues to build on his vast knowledge. He is also a winner of The Order of Merit for Conservation by the French Government in 2011, the Tusk Award in 2013 and inaugural Prince William Award for Conservation in Africa in 2013.
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.
