Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Cape Town to Victoria Falls holiday in South Africa

Environment

Accommodation & Meals:
Most nights on this trip will be spent in fully service camps, whilst the remainder will be in guesthouses and small hotels. By mainly camping, we reduce our energy consumption and negative effect on the environment. These sites, often being based within or nearby National Parks, are extremely conscious of litter disposal and try to use gas fires instead of limited wood resources. All breakfasts, 10 lunches and 12 dinners are provided and your local guide and chef will use fresh, locally sourced ingredients where possible. We can arrange for meals out together or recommend restaurants nearby as a means of encouraging local investment and celebration of African cuisine.

Wildlife:
We do a number of activities focused on wildlife and we actively ensure that our guides are well informed and able to convey environmental knowledge to clients. Etosha National Park, for example, is home to a great variety and number of game. There are waterholes next to the excellent campsites, and it is not uncommon for us to spend all night watching a gala performance of animals: wildebeest, zebra, impala, springbok, kudu, elephant, giraffe, lion and even rhino are all common sights. Our entrance fees to Etosha and other places like this on our itinerary, are a vital contribution to park maintenance, conservation activities, community projects, and employment of local people.

UK Office:
It all starts at home so we have first worked at reducing our carbon footprint in our UK Offices. Through energy conservation measures and recycling policies, we are proud to be actively reducing the waste produced and our impact on the environment. We support various projects all over the world to try and give something back to the places we visit.

Community

Local Craft & Culture:
Throughout the tour, there are opportunities to appreciate Southern African culture and to purchase traditional, handmade crafts. One of the best places to do this might be at the end of the tour when we visit the big craft centre at the entrance to Victoria Falls, or at the Twyfelfontein engravings. Here a variety of shop owners come to sell their painted wooden trinkets, instruments and jewellery etc. We encourage clients to support local businesses like this as a way of boosting the economy of local communities. We are also aware that some items sold are made with illegal or environmentally damaging products and so leaders are careful to give a warning in a briefing about things like ivory and large items made from local hardwood.

Group Size:
This small group tour has a maximum of 16 participants, meaning that we have a low impact on the environments and communities we visit and are able to ensure that we do not disrupt or lead to the displacement of local people. The small number also allows us to stay in unique, family-run hotels that cannot benefit from coach tours and other mass tourism due to their limited sizes.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?


A river crossing of a group of elephants at Chobe Nat. Park (Botswana). Simply amazing ! As a NatGeo documentary in front of my eyes. Speechless!!!

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?


To be prepared. Desert of Namib can be tough

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


Absolutely yes!

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?


Just a little negative note : a couple of campsites in Southern Namibia are poor. All the rest simply fantastic : guides, landscapes, and a ton of incredible
emotions.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?


For me the National Parks were always going to be the highlight and they didn't disappoint. Etosha and Chobe are so different from each other but both have lots of interesting animals.

We saw a cheetah family with a fresh kill, several black rhino, more giraffe and elephants than you could ever hope for and a good number of hippos at Chobe too.

We also had some very dramatic weather in the shape of two major thunderstorms, made all the more exciting/scary by the fact we were camping.
Some wonderful sunsets and mostly great campsites.


2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?


Read the trip notes!
Take the currency they suggest ie SARand plus USDollars. The guide will help you get the Pula for Botswana so not need to worry about that and you can use SARand in Namibia.
Take malaria tabs from Swakopmund onwards, and use a good anti-mossie spray.
Take an elastic camping washing line with hooks on the end, and a head torch.


3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


Yes we supported local bars and the food we ate was sourced locally from each place.
Most of the bigger sites had good recycling systems and were cleaned.
The trips and transport were provided by local people.


4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?


It was good (excellent bar the stomach bug and the window of the bus breaking), well organised - an experience!
