Responsible tourism: Kenya wildlife rangers safari holiday

Environment

We believe animals should be viewed in the wild. Were all for zero contact, zero interaction experiences when it comes to wildlife. This trip offers travellers the opportunity to see animals in their natural habitat in Amboseli National Park and Chyulu Hills National Park. This includes a Rhino Foot Patrol within Chyulu Hills. Our leaders are trained to ensure travellers follow a few simple guidelines, including not calling out to the animals, whistling or trying to get their attention noise disturbs them and stresses them out just let them do their thing. Drivers and guides must never use their vehicles to get an animal to move or drive off-road to get closer to the action either.

In an effort to reduce single use plastic during this trip we provide reusable cloth bags to all of our travellers. Whilst its easy to use plastic excessively, especially in the hot months, we encourage our travellers to buy large 5-10 litre bottles in order to refill their smaller ones. 50 million bottles are used in Kenya annually, creating a monumental environmental challenge. To do our part all our overland trucks have a drinking water tank on board.

As a company we are strongly committed to carbon offsetting. The main sources of carbon emission from our trips (transport, accommodation and waste) are assessed and offset into renewable energy projects. Weve offset over 250,000 tonnes of carbon emissions from our trips and offices worldwide, including over 40,000 tonnes of carbon in 2016. Part of the cost of your trip is dedicated to carbon offsetting.

Unfortunately, during the vast majority of this itinerary, using public transport is not reliable or feasible and so we use private, locally owned transport instead.

Community

This trip is run by our own local East African operator who shares our commitment to responsible travel, from waste and water management to ensuring we are leaving as minimal a footprint as possible. Our local team are trained on our global responsible travel policies and practices. We also use a range of other local suppliers for different activities throughout this itinerary. We will be welcomed by the local Rangers in their outstations and training camps to learn about the unique challenges of human-wildlife conflict in a park.

This unique expedition takes you into the world of Kenya's inspiring rangers the men and women on the frontline of wildlife conservation. Weve partnered with The Thin Green Line Foundation, who protect nature's protectors. Giving travellers an insight into the work and risk that goes into protecting wildlife and wild places. A $500 (AUD) donation to the Thin Green Line is included in the price of the trip.

We also have a foundation which was set up to empower travellers to have a positive impact on the communities they visit. Our foundation now supports over 50 local, grassroots projects around the world. Over the past 15 years, the foundation has distributed over AU $5 million to projects tackling areas such as sustainable development, human rights, child protection, environmental conservation, wildlife protection, education and healthcare.
All aspects of this trip (on the ground) are operated by East Africans (most of whom live locally) including all our leaders, vehicle drivers, local site guides, and accommodation providers.
