Responsible tourism

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we screen every trip so you can travel knowing your holiday will help support conservation and local people.

Environment
We know the wildlife and ecosystem of the Northern Tuli Game Reserve intimately, and are committed to protecting and preserving it. This area is home to a wide diversity of charismatic species, including lion, leopard, cheetah and elephant, but is also home to many rarer smaller mammals including brown hyena, spotted hyena, serval, honey badger and porcupine. Many of the areas we visit are former hunting areas and, as such, wildlife (particularly elephants) can sometimes be nervous. We use expert guides and tour leaders who will always work to ensure no sighting causes discomfort or stress to any animal. Should an animal be stressed by our presence, or we cause it to act unnaturally, we will end the sighting and leave the animal in peace.

We are also conscious that, as a specialist tracking holiday, this tour will involve significant amounts of time around wildlife on foot. This minimises our carbon footprint, but also allows us a deeper and more holistic understanding of the ecosystem around us. When we do drive, we may sometimes need to leave the road in order to access sightings - we will only do so when vegetation will not be damaged, and the final decision as to whether to leave the road will be made by the tour leader. Many of our drives will take place at night, and we will never spotlight diurnal animals. We will also never spotlight young, injured or vulnerable animals. When using a white light, we will never shine this directly into an animal's eyes.

We have tailored this tour to minimise our impact on the environment. Most nights are spent at the remote Mohave Bush Camp, with minimal usage of water and electricity. Flush toilets and showers are sourced from a local borehole and the camp itself is comprised of simple, rustic huts which have an extremely low impact on the ecosystem. The camp is not fenced, which allows for the free movement of wildlife at all times.
Community

The Impacts of this Trip

We insist that our partners in Botswana employ local people, and it is key to our mission that local communities see genuine benefits from our visit and from ecotourism at large. Our guides in Tuli, as well as cooks and housekeeping staff, are all from communities around the game reserve itself. We strongly encourage clients to tip staff at the properties we use, and to donate to any of a number of local projects in the area around Tuli.

It is vital that strong relationships are built with local communities as a result of ecotourist activities, and this visit will be no exception. We ask clients to be respectful of local people, as well as their cultures and traditions, at all times. We ask clients to dress modestly, to engage with local people where possible, and to respect the land and wildlife that local people so graciously allow us to visit. We ask clients to never take photographs of local people without their expressed permission. Whilst we expect clients to be respectful in all interactions with local people, we will never ask anyone to disguise their gender or sexual orientation on a holiday with us.
