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.
PlanetA lot of time and effort has gone into sourcing you the very best in eco friendly / responsible / sustainable properties while you are on holiday in Africa. Travelling with a purpose comes down to the consideration of the people, wildlife and environment of the places that we visit. Africa has a whole host of sustainable tourism initiatives and we are seeing more and more luxury safari lodges and hotel groups making great strides in their efforts to provide, preserve and protect.
To protect the beautiful flora and fauna in Chobe National Park, Botswana has an Eco-Certification System.
Camp Kalahari supports the local conservation initiative, a project that aims to protect and allow the migration of mammals throughout the area.
Natural Selection is fully committed to making a positive impact on wildlife conservation and in the lives of local people in wildlife areas of Africa. We are incredibly proud of what we have achieved in our first 3 years through our dedicated partners and our pledge: 1.5% of every guest’s stay with Natural Selection goes to conservation.
Sable Alley is part of the Natural Selection's collection of lodges and the group has a mission to make a difference in wildlife conservation and in the lives of people living sustainably alongside wildlife areas. The company has established the Natural Selection Conservation Trust which is an an independent, non-profit organization registered in Botswana, supporting wildlife conservation. $50 per person per trip is donated to either Black Mamba or Greenpop and then $8 per person is donated per trip to plant a tree with Greenpop.
Ngoma Safari Lodge does their best to be sustainable as possible and was built using all local materials and blends into its surroundings. The kitchens and food storage follows eco friendly requirements. The lodge is also part of Machaba Safaris group which runs a few lodges in Botswana and Zimbabwe. They provide support to anti-poaching patrols.
We believe that making a difference also starts within our company culture and that it is our responsibility to extend this mantra to our clients as well as everyone we associate ourselves within the industry. For each trip booked with us, you can donate $100 or more to Cleanhub and they will collect and recycle 100 pounds (45.3kg) of plastic on your behalf.
PeopleOur team makes a conscious effort to set you up in our preferred eco-friendly lodges and hotels that are not only family-friendly, but also encourage their guests to partake in wildlife conservation programmes, sustainable development, community involvement and philanthropic efforts.
Traveling to Africa’s remote destinations with your family can be a once-in-a-lifetime experience, but it’s important to keep in mind that most safaris take place in some of the least developed nations in the world. We support safari lodges that empower local communities through job creation and training programmes, philanthropic efforts and connect our guests with Africa’ diverse cultures.
Sable Alley has partnered with the local communities in Khwai, and proceeds from staying at Sable Alley go straight back into the Khwai Village community projects.
Ngoma Safari Lodge is a joint community project and is part of the Chobe Enclave Conservation Trust. Through this program the local community directly benefits from the lodge through land leasing and employment opportunities. Good to know that the local community benefits financially from each and every guest to the lodge. Community is of the most upmost importance to Ngoma Safari Lodge. The lodge is committed to uplifting local communities by utilising education and empowerment and they support local schools namely Gonneye Sethlare Pre-School, Hwange Main Camp Primary School and Mabale Primary, among others.
