Our partners behind this holiday promote inclusivity on all their trips and across their business and we are all committed to ensuring travellers face no discrimination on any part of the trip they control.
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.
PlanetOn this wildlife tour in Tanzania, to help protect the environment, we avoid any domestic flights. and the associated CO2 emissions as much as possible. Whilst many of the safari activities will be conducted using Land Cruiser type vehicles, we do also make an effort to do as much sightseeing on foot as possible.
Drinking water and the waste associated by single use plastic water bottles is something we are working hard on in Tanzania as well as other destinations. All travellers are encouraged to bring their own refillable water bottles and we are rolling out a program of providing large water canisters in our vehicles on group tours to take refills from. We are also offering water filtering bottles to travellers, all of which can vastly reduce waste generated by our customers both during the tour and on an ongoing basis.
Our guides in Tanzania are strict in monitoring and preventing littering to protect the national parks we visit and waste bins are provided in all vehicles. If trash cans are not available, we facilitate the collection and later disposal of any waste generated during our tours. Tanzania recently imposed a policy which in effect bans single use plastics from the country and we fully support this. When entering Tanzania, desks are available at airports and border crossings where single use plastics can be surrounded on entry.
Many of the sites and national parks we visit whilst in Tanzania are incredibly important historical and natural wonders and important breeding grounds for endemic animal species, and we encourage our travellers to treat these sites as such, sticking to marked paths, not climbing on ruins, picking wild plants or flowers, and avoiding disturbing the local wildlife as much as possible.
PeopleOn our Tanzania Wildlife Encounters Tour we aim to see more of the country and its people than just the main tourist sites. We work with locally owned boutique style hotels or deluxe guesthouses.
Our Tanzania tours are all run by local Tanzanian guides, as we feel they can provide both historical information and more insight into modern day Tanzania and culture than international tour leaders.
We also try to consider the social and cultural aspects of the local community and how to respect the customs and traditions of its inhabitants. Our tour notes will provide advance information on dress codes and particular local customs, and our guides will expand on this in their explanations during the tour. This means we can create valuable and rewarding opportunities for our travellers and allow local people to mingle and exchange ideas and thoughts without causing any unintended offence.
In Tanzania, we support local crafts makers and artists by visiting a couple of carefully selected local handicraft shops. All products sold in these shops are sourced from the surrounding local communities.
Resource donations are currently the most appropriate support that we as travelers could give to the people of Tanzania.
Tanzania and other East African countries regularly face food shortages. As it isnít practical for travelers to bring with them forms of food and tinned products, we rather encourage them to donate money, which we hand over to the organizations in charge of food supplies to the poor.
