Tanzania safaris, northern circuit
Description of Tanzania safaris, northern circuit
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.
PlanetEach safari camp is designed to operate on an environmentally sustainable basis, and to directly support conservation and community development projects in our landscapes.
In terms of its own ecological ‘foot' print, the camps abide by a code of responsible practice in relation to: energy conservation (inverter systems have recently been installed so as to reduce the camp's use of diesel-fuelled generators), waste recycling (glass, plastics, ‘wet waste' and the distribution of food-waste to local pig-farmers), sewage disposal, air emissions, non-CFC use, pesticide-use, noise reduction and visual pollution.
Wherever possible, local produce is featured on the menus.
The camps are working in cooperation with SENAPA (Serengeti National Parks Authority) regarding a re-afforestation tree-planting programme. They also work in cooperation with SENAPA in maintaining and up-grading the roads in the park so as to keep the erosive practice of ‘off-road' driving to a minimum.
The camp has smoke arrestor to reduce carbon deposition in the atmosphere and a water harvester to accumulate rain water to reduce the dependency on other water sources. It also has a soak pit sewage system.
PeopleThe Ground Handler offer subsidized medical care to the local community - particularly in relation to maternal care and child-immunization; also in relation to HIV/AIDS sensitization.
The camps work closely with the local Community, in the promotion of cultural dance, music, traditional practices and in the promotion of local handicrafts.
They create both temporary and permanent jobs for the local community. They also offer training and work-exposure programmes for school leavers.
They actively encourage interface between our guests and the local villages - hosting tours and promoting the sale of handicraft items.
They showcase cultural dance, costume, singing and cultural craft as part of our corporate undertaking to support and sustain the cultural heritage of our nation.
They work with a number of local schools, both by providing educational materials and by hosting environmental training sessions for the pupils.
In order to promote the overall health of their workforce, the accommodation provider has also established the Employee Wellness Programme, which aims to address the holistic health needs of not only their staff, but also of the communities that surround their camps and lodges. In essence, the programme is devoted to reducing the incidence of accident and illness in the workplace, promoting healthy lifestyles, maximizing potential and promoting optimum quality of life.
