2022: 2 Jun, 7 Jul, 17 Jul
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 operate this tour with a maximum group size of 18 travelers to minimize our impact on the culture and the environment where we visit.
Our guides help guests to view the wildlife in a responsible way (i.e. keeping minimum distances, not using camera flashes and not disturbing the animals).
We work with suppliers who are local families, avid outdoorsmen and cultural guardians part of the local fabric of each location that we visit.
Our guides are locals who have spent years learning about their environment and the animals living among it. They bring unaparralleled passion for their land and for passing along knowledge to our clients.
We are in constant communication with our guides to ensure that our itineraries can be executed with the least amount of impact to the environment and to the local wildlife.
We stay in lodges that are run by locals and that specialize in minimizing their consumer footprint. We take out whatever we bring in and do not leave any footprints behind us.
Meals are prepared by our team and made with locally available meats, fish, fruits, veggies and spices. Waste is kept to a minimum. Water is dispensed liberally yet consciously. Each guest is provided with a reusable water bottle at the beginning of their trip. We reduce, reuse and recycle whenever possible.
A portion of the money from this tour goes to support the local community and local programming.
PeopleFriends & Neighbors:
We only employ local guides for our tours. Throughout the trip we either prepare meals with locally sourced food that is in season, or visit family-owned restaurants and eat authentic Tanzanian food.
The few souvenir opportunities that are presented throughout the trip will be stops at local and native craft studios where you can often buy directly from the artists themselves.
We also visit a local Masaai tribe who teach us about their housing, customs, and way of life. The funds paid for the visit are then used to dig wells and clean water to the area. Money is also contributed to local farming and educational initiatives.
We always give back in the areas we visit, including working with local charities that support communities in need and protect the local ecosystems. We also make a donation to carbon offset each guest's trip. This money goes to support reforestation projects and other initiatives that reduce greenhouse gases.
