Western Tanzania luxury Safari
Description of Western Tanzania luxury Safari
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 are committed to responsible values, which are echoed in all elements of our tours and holidays. We work with accommodation providers and local suppliers who share this dedication to responsible travel by focusing on environmental, conservation and community initiatives.
For example, this Luxury Western Tanzania Safari features eco-friendly accommodation, such as Arusha Coffee Lodge, part of the Elewana Collection which operates plastic reduction and recycling programs, uses locally-sourced ingredients where possible, and employs 50-75% of its staff from the local community.
You will visit several national parks and reserves on this itinerary. In our detailed pre-departure travel pack we have included a note to remind you not leave any litter in the national parks and reserves – everything you carry in, you must carry out. Aside from the environmental damage, litter can be harmful to the wildlife.
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, including encouraging travellers to bring reusable water bottles on their holiday.
PeopleDuring your time in Tanzania we encourage you to support the local economy by buying authentic handmade products such as cotton fabrics, wood carvings, pottery and silver jewellery at markets, villages and small-scale souvenir shops, rather than hotel tourist shops or on organised shopping trips. When you buy products at markets, villages and small-scale souvenir shops you are helping to support a fragile economy and supporting local artisans helps keep traditional crafts alive.
This trip includes stays at Chada Katavi Camp, which works with the Landscape and Conservation Mentors Organisation (LCMO), to support the development of strong relationships between communities and wildlife, and Greystoke Mahale Camp, which works with the Katumbi Clinic and the Katumbi Primary School, to support initiatives surrounding the health and education of the local community.
We encourage you to support the Pack for a Purpose initiative and use a small amount of space in your luggage to pack supplies for local community projects in Tanzania. You can leave your donations with our partner hotels and lodges who will pass them on to the school, medical centre or animal welfare project.
