PlanetConservation Purpose: The gorilla trekking permit which is paid for to visit Mountain gorillas in Bwindi Impenetrable National park helps in preserving the forest, its inhabitants and surrounding areas. A certain percentage of the gorilla permit fees is given to the communities so they can appreciate conservation. Rangers, guides, potters are paid a good wage from the same.
Our Office: It starts with us at office. We protect the environment by reusing paper and cartridge and switching off all devices, water taps, lights when not in use or while away from office. Our clients are given digital itineraries on their emails so as to reduce wastage of paper and energy.
Accommodation: The accommodations we choose during this trip are responsible travel sensitive and not use plastic mineral water bottles and plastic straws. They use reusable glass bottles in rooms and in the dinning area
They grow most of their food with no insecticides which are harmful to the environment and to humans
PeopleAll our safari guides and drivers are local and by employing them, they are able to benefit financially and are able to provide for their families and taking their children to school.
In Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, our clients are encouraged by the safari guides to go check out different craft shops and the money goes directly to the local people with no middle man. The crafts are much more cheaper and clients buy lots of crafts from people who are able to live a sustainable life.
On this itinerary, there are at least two stopovers at local restaurants where clients will stop for lunch and pay directly to the restaurants.
On the last day, they will stop at the equator for souvenir shopping at the craft shops owned by the locals. Most of these crafts are made by the locals. Buying from them supports them financially and also clients will interact with these people, learning about them and them about you.
