Responsible Travel

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.

Planet

We know the wildlife of Northern and Central Kenya intimately and are committed to its protection and conservation. The dry-country habitat of Samburu supports a unique mixture of endemic or near-endemic species and sub-species, and more typical charismatic savanna wildlife. Examples of the former include desert warthog, beisa oryx, Somali ostrich, reticulated giraffe, gerenuk, Grevy's zebra and lesser kudu. Lion, cheetah, leopard and African wild dog also use the Samburu and Buffalo Springs areas, making them vitally important regional strongholds for these species. This is especially the case for leopard, who find a real niche here. Ol Pejeta and Laikipia support impressive populations of white rhino (including northern white rhino), black rhino, lion, striped hyena and African wild dog, and there is excellent conservation work done here to protect rhinos and chimpanzees. Aberdare National Park is a unique ecosystem that supports deeply threatened species including bongo, African golden cat and giant forest hog. Lake Nakuru is a vitally important ecosystem for black rhino, white rhino and many other species.

We always ask clients to considering moderating their water usage, especially in areas such as Samburu where drought is relatively common.

People

It is imperative that local people and communities see benefits from ecotourism. As such, it is vital that our visit attaches genuine value to wildlife and ecosystems, to better ensure their protection for the benefit of future generations. As such, we insist that all of our suppliers in Kenya employ people from local communities. Your guide for the duration of the tour will hail from Kenya or a neighbouring country (such as Uganda), and your tour specialist mammal-watching tour leader will be from the UK, France and the USA. Your drivers, housekeeping staff and local guides will all come from the areas immediately adjacent to the ecosystems visited during this tour.

We strongly encourage clients to learn more about a number of conservation projects in the areas visited by this tour. In particular, we encourage clients to spend time learning about the work done in the Ol Pejeta Conservancy to conserve white rhinos, black rhinos and chimpanzees. If appropriate, we also encourage clients to consider contributing to this work in any way they can.
