Environment and Wildlife
The lodges used on this safari are in the forest or adjust to it - keeping the experience of nature close with no noise pollution tolerated.
20% of gate collections by Uganda Wildlife Authority goes directly to community in an initiative termed as revenue sharing. When you visit the park, you are contributing directly to gorilla conservation. The revenue given to communities surrounding the park ensure that these communities protect the gorillas because they benefit directly from having them in their community.
We also often include a visit to the communities adjacent to the parks to ensure they benefit directly and therefore join in conservation. On this tour, you will visit Ride for a woman project – started by a woman and is helping provide skills and jobs to women in this community.
Just like all our tours, we minimize trash on our safaris by encouraging travelers to reuse different materials. We provide travelers with reusable water bottles. We no longer buy the small disposable water cartons but rather the bigger bottles that then ensure minimum plastic and trash on our tours. Whatever rubbish generated while on the safari must be retained in the car and safely disposed of by the driver guide.
Our guides are locals in the countries we work in – they have grown up in Uganda and are in touch with this community. In the park, you will be handed over to ranger guides based at there to explore the forest. This helps with spreading the tourism dollar to many more people on the value chain.
Bwindi impenetrable forest has some areas that are steep and can be slippery in the rainy season. We encourage clients to take ‘porters’ who help make this journey easier. In return the they earn the much needed money to supplement their farming incomes. They are the best conservationists of the forest because they directly earn from it.
The lodge employs people from the local population. They train them and give them opportunities for growth and promotion. The people in turn understand and appreciate conservation of the wildlands and encourage their community members on the same
