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.
PlanetEnsuring that our clients travel with a purpose is of utmost importance to us. Our eco-safari itineraries promote lodges who actively partake in wildlife conservation through the establishment of their own conservation training programmes or anti-poaching units. We strongly believe in passing on our knowledge to younger generations and educating them on the importance of preserving our environment. We recommend lodges that engage our youngest clients through educational Junior Ranger Programmes giving them a greater understanding of conservation and the ecosystem through interactive activities.To support responsible travel in Africa, We have partnered with the Hoedspruit Endangered Species Centre (HESC), a wildlife facility focusing on conserving rare and vulnerable species in Africa. Based in South Africa, the organization is actively involved in researching, breeding and anti-poaching initiatives as well as passing on their knowledge on conservation to local communities and the general public.
