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 know the wildlife and ecosystems of Kenya very well and are wholly committed to their protection and conservation. In particular, the little-visited areas of Arabuko-Sokoke and Shimba Hills are of extremely high conservation value, and our trip is particularly important to them due to the comparatively low volume of ecotourists at each destination. Arabuko-Sokoke, whilst primarily a birding destination, is home to several endemic or near-endemic species, including the golden-rumped sengi, Sokoke dog mongoose and Aders's duiker. Shimba Hills is home to the only resident population of sable in Kenya. Tsavo, Amboseli and the Mara are all part of a vast open ecosystem that supports internationally important populations of many species.
We are committed to ethical practices, and are conscious that the Great Migration often brings out the worst in guides, as vehicles jostle for position. We will never drive in front of migrating animals, or view them in such a way that causes them distress or to behave in an unnatural way. We will never remain at a sighting when we deem it has become too crowded, and will never spend unreasonable amounts of time at a sighting of a young, injured or otherwise vulnerable animal.
PeopleIt is crucially important that local communities see the benefits of ecotourism. This ensures that genuine value is attached to wildlife and ecosystems by local people, helping to secure the future of vulnerable species and their habitats. To this end, we insist that our local suppliers employ people from Kenya or neighbouring countries. Your guide throughout this tour will be from Kenya or Uganda, with all local guides, cooks and housekeeping staff being employed from local communities.
We strongly encourage guests to take the chance to interact with and contribute to local communities whenever possible. This tour is scheduled to take in as much of Kenya as possible and, as such, some days are dominated by road travel. When we are at a destination for a full day, though, we encourage guests to visit local villages to learn more about local culture, traditions and ways of life when possible. In particular, we are happy to arrange a visit to a local village during our stay in the Masai Mara, and such opportunities are also possible in Amboseli and in Tsavo.
