Description of Kenya photographic safari in the Masai Mara
2022: 29 Jan
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.
PlanetThe natural world is our niche. No other company fully specialises in this area and we pride ourselves on taking the essential concepts of a safari and translating these into all the itineraries we design. Our focus differs from other operators. Working as a team of highly knowledgeable experts, we have first-hand experience of the destinations we feature and also seek to support many environmental and conservation ventures across the world. This enables us to provide extraordinary journeys that put our clients in the right place at the right time for life changing and ethically responsible wildlife encounters and natural world experiences.
Wherever possible we use locally run and managed accommodation. This can either be in environmentally low impact eco-lodges or tented camping safaris. As a result of this we minimise the impact on the local environment at the same time as providing the traveller with a high level of comfort. This small group safari means your impact on the environment and wildlife is kept to a minimum at all times.
The camp that we have chosen as the base for this photographic safari has a strong eco-focus and aims to keep the impact of their operations on the environment to a minimum, including using solar power and avoiding single-use plastic as much as possible.
Our partnership with Rekero Camp also ensures that your stay contributes to a number of environmental projects which they support including (but not limited to) the Mara Predator Conservation Programme, the Mara Elephant Project and Rhino Ark.
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 which is important both for their development, but also for the protection of wildlife and the greater natural world.
Rekero Camp directly supports the Maa Trust which is situated in the Masai Mara and which works to support the local community with career guidance, sustainable income generation, ending FGM and female empowerment through career and business opportunities. Each night of your stay at Rekero Camp will include a contribution to the various community projects which the camp supports to ensure that your presence is giving a direct benefit to the wider community and not just the natural world which you are there to enjoy. It is only through supporting the local people that we can ensure that the wildlife and environment are also protected.
