Kenya 7 day safari in Amboseli NP
Description of Kenya 7 day safari in Amboseli NP
This trip can be tailor made throughout the year to suit your requirements
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 found within the Greater Amboseli Ecosystem very well and are committed to its protection and conservation. Amboseli is an internationally important location for bush elephant, and acts as a crucial corridor for a large number of species that range great distances through East Africa, including cheetah, lion and African wild dog. With the importance of these species and this ecosystem in mind, we will never drive off-road in sensitive areas. We will also never remain at a sighting when we deem too many vehicles to be present, and we will never pursue an animal that has chosen to move away from our vehicle. This itinerary includes several night drives, and we will never spotlight a diurnal animal during these drives, and we will never spotlight an animal that is young, injured or otherwise vulnerable.
Amboseli has, in recent years, seen intense and damaging periods of drought. With this in mind, we ask that clients are careful when it comes to the amount of water they use. Whilst we want all clients to be comfortable, we ask that they consider limiting the length of showers and ensure that they do not waste water during their stay. With a focus on the environment, we ask clients to limit their use of single-use plastics, and to ensure that the volume of refuse they produce is minimised as much as possible.
PeopleIt is vital that, wherever in the world they might be, local people and the communities of which they are a part see genuine benefits from ecotourism. When this is achieved, it helps to ensure that local communities attach value to wildlife and ecosystems that are under pressure which, in turn, does a huge amount to secure the future for these ecosystems and the wildlife that depends on them. Bearing this in mind, we insist that all suppliers employ local people wherever possible. As such, guests should expect that, throughout this tour, guides, cooks, drivers and housekeeping staff will all be Kenyan.
It is imperative that relations between local people and tourists are positive - after all, tourists are guests and are privileged to be permitted to share in the wilderness areas that local people call home. We ask that clients are always respectful of local people, their culture and their traditions. To this end, we ask that clients are polite, open and positive in their interactions with local people. In particular, local people (usually local children) will often be very interested in visitors - we ask that clients embrace this interest for what it is, genuine curiosity, rather than an intrusion of privacy.
