Description of Highlights of Kenya luxury camping 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.
PlanetBefore every safari, it is advisable to learn about the destination you are visiting and the environment you will be staying at. In all our itineraries we include a document that highlights the important information about Kenya and the general information that you need to know while traveling, from the environmental factors, weather and climatic conditions, what to pack and what you need to do while traveling to protect the environment during your safari.
Be conscious of what youíre taking and leaving. Take only photographs and leave only footprints: do not litter, disturb plant life, or take anything from the wild. If you have any trash, no matter how small, please dispose of it in a trash receptacle or gather it in a plastic bag for later disposal.
Clients are briefed before proceeding with their safari on what to expect, dos and doníts while at the safari. Which include; ensuring they do not litter the parks or their way to and from the parks as they are provided with trash bins, they should also not feed the animals at the parks or make noise while at safari.
All our tour vehicles have trash cans for proper disposal of waste to avoid disposal of non-degradable that may harm the wildlife. We discourage smoking and loud noise that may cause disturbances to the wildlife.
We encourage our travellers to travel in smaller groups during their trips to various destinations. Handling bigger groups is not easy and they cause stress to the environment
All our driver guides are required to keep by the trails so as to avoid distraction and interferences with the wildlife. Our guides are also discouraged from taking bribes to go off the road for good photos and better views, we encourage clients to let the animals come to them without destroying their habitats. Everyone should keep in mind that the wild animals are not like those found in the theme parks, they are not tamed, hence should take extra precautions not to offend them. We ask our clients never buy products made from endangered species.
We use low carbon transport and cars that hardly make any noises while in the parks. We promote silence in the parks in that no radio music or any other noises while in the park, this is to ensure we do not destruct wildlife in their own territories and to enable them to roam around un-bothered.
In reserves such as Masai Mara, you may observe that vehicles are allowed to move around away from the main road which is okay, but for other parks such as Amboseli National Park, Lake Nakuru National Park and others vehicles should always stay on the main road, kindly make sure to adhere to this rules.
How many people after their safaris, have the pride to say that you protected the environment!
PeopleFrom the itineraries, we mention some of the amazing cultures that you will get to see and possibly interact with during your safari. This is to educate you just on some key aspects you need to have when you come into contact with them. Just as you would love your privacy while living your normal day to day life, the same goes to the villagers that you get to see while you are on your safari. One is advised not to take pictures of the half-dressed Maa speaking people unless they allow you to.
Supporting the locals is gesture that goes a long way, when you purchase handmade items from local artists, you directly support them and their families, not to mention, you walk away with unique items that immediately bring you back to Africa every time you look at them. However, as much as we encourage you to purchase souvenirs, itís important to note which items are unethical or illegal to buy. Many species of plants and animals are declining in numbers because of destruction of their habitats, while others are declining due to direct exploitation. Purchasing items like ivory, rhino horns, coral, tortoise shell, reptile skins, and plants harms the community and encourages further illegal activity.
Kenyan tourism in a great part heavily relies on the communities that live around or inside the parks and reserves respectively. We play part in taking care of the communities by giving them recognition and contributing just as much to improving their living standards, this is through building facilities for them such as better education systems, health centers, churches and even houses. however, we also put in mind of the surrounding and ensure to build facilities that do not interfere with their movements, health such as carbon emission, or cultures.
We tend to lean more on suppliers that are managed or have employed local labor, as they are the best examples while it comes to showing clients on ways to take care of the environment and communities around.
In all our tour itineraries, we mention optional village visits which is the best way for travelers to experience and to learn about the Masai communities as you get to join in the dances and visit their manyatta homesteads.
Providing new sources of income through buying of local souvenirs from the cultural communities and also employing locals to be our driver guides since they are the most knowledgeable about the destinationsí culture and other company staff. This ensures easy understanding between the clients and the local communities visited during the tour.
