Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Tanzania Safari and beach holiday

Environment

We work with selected safari accommodations, featured in this itinerary such as Lake Manze Camp in the Selous Reserve, which are committed to local conservation efforts which reflects our company ethos. We highly favour, and like to promote, low impact safari camps with an emphasis on small carbon footprints, making the minimum possible impact on their environments.

We promote smaller islands, like Mafia on this itinerary, where we can spread the benefits of tourism beyond the mainstream, and over commercialised, areas such as Zanzibar. This helps to reduce the environmental impact of over tourism on the more popular islands and lessens the impact of people on wildlife and marine parks.

We've also got great recommendations of responsible local wildlife encounter operators, which act responsibly towards local marine life on Mafia Island in particular. This includes local outfits which use responsible policies towards swimming with whale sharks, which can be a problematic encounter for the whale sharks if mismanaged.

To ensure that we are offering ground-breaking itineraries and are always keeping up-to-date with the latest developments abroad, our UK staff travel regularly to our destinations. This ‘work’ also leaves a carbon footprint and we compensate for all our staff travel by donating carbon-mitigating funds to our charity partners.

Our UK office takes a leading role in setting the standards for an environmentally friendly work environment. We work with local government to recycle our waste and continually look for new ways to be greener.

Community

We encourage you to be proactive and respectful when engaging in activities such as local village visits. We also remind you to always ask permission before taking photographs: this is a sign of respect.

We employ local guides and support staff in Tanzania whom we pay fair wages, often exceeding government standards which we still consider too low, and thereby remove the reliance on tipping from travellers for livelihoods.

Our accommodation choices make use of locally owned properties where possible and often include adventurous, authentic choices such as local homestays which therefore involve local people and their communities in the very fabric of our holidays.

We encourage all our travellers to research local customs and read your trip notes before you depart to ensure you are conscientious and respectful in a different culture.

In most cases we strongly recommend that you do not give money to children beggars. If begging is a successful enterprise, parents are encouraged to forsake their children’s education in pursuit of this opportunity.

Talk to us about packing for a purpose and see if you can get involved by making a small material contribution to the communities you are visiting. We have developed partnerships with charities and accommodations throughout Tanzania and are constantly working to extend our reach with the help of our travellers.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?


Seeing the great migration, thousands of wildebeest crossing a river while making a "snoring" sound. We stayed their watching them for several hours. Wonderful.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?


Think about the fact that you want to go camping or prefer staying in a lodge. The bathroom-facilities on the camping sites are basic.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


Our guide was really concerned with respecting the natural habits and behaviours of the animals and he always put this before trying to fulfil the wishes of the tourists.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?


We had a fantastic safari in Tanzania (Northern circuit). We came back home with beautiful memories of the country, his wildlife and his people.
