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.
PlanetGuests from all over the world wanting to explore Namibia and Botswana are a strong provider for many locals in both countries, such as Namibia employing over 100,000 locals. These are people especially from rural areas, making this sector an important employer that helps reducing rural poverty. In addition, Namibia and Botswana's tourism sector is also one of the most competitive sectors in the world.
By bringing photographic groups from around the world, our payment for entering the parks among the many others, contribute to the survival of these magnificent species.
Etosha National Park is one of Namibia's most iconic wildlife hotspots for guests to travel to. Each entry into the park funds the protection of this magnificent wildlife hotspot. The NWR Namibian Wildlife Resort, funded by tourism is proud to protect the endangered Black Rhino's that live in the park.
Another destination known as the Moremi Game Reserve, located in Botswana is another destination that protects the wildlife through the visitors contributions and entry fees.
As this is a camping photographic tour, there is no lodge building disruption to the surrounding wildlife from where the camps are situated. Most camps have very little construction in Namibia and Botswana from where the tents are set up allowing wildlife to roam freely. All camps that are used during this tour offer well designed waste and recycling compartments for all safari campers.
The tour provides large canasters of water that the group shares. These are refiled with filtered drinking water that are set up at local supermarkets. This prevents the constant buying and waste of single use plastic water bottles. Also we offer each photo guest with their own personal and reusable metal water bottle that becomes their own.
With only allowing a group size of five guests maximum, this allows us to only use a one spacious vehicle for our wildlife photography enthusiasts to use. These are guided by a local driver/guide.
PeopleDuring this tour, we use local guides for all transportation and safari outings. All national parks and reserves hire local guides and neighbouring bushmen for boating trips such as the mokoro photo boat trips into the delta.
Camps that we use during this tour provide jobs for locals in both Namibia and Botswana. While on transit, local houses sell goods on the side of the road that always takes people's fancy for an eager stop off. Money goes a long way in these parts and really help with a family's food supply.
As the local Bushmen play a cultural role here in Namibia and Botswana, we are proud to host a cultural visit see their ways of living. As their culture is on the verge of extinction, tourism has kept their traditional ways from not fading away. Bushmen take our photography guests into the wilderness on a traditional bushman experience where guests can experience their ancient and natural ways of living. They sell bracelets and crafts for tourists to buy once they have visited the Bushman on safari.
