How the minimum criteria of the responsible travel standard was met...

Economic responsibility

WILDFOOT Travel are proud of our principled based values which our community can always depend on. We support several home and overseas charities, organisations and campaigns including AfriCat, Worldwide Fund for Nature (WWF), the Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust (WWT), Save the Albatross and South Georgia Habitat Restoration Project, Wader Trust, Wildlife SOS India and sponsorship of individual and underprivileged children and schools in Zambia and Botswana. WILDFOOT Travel is committed to ethically working with overseas partners who employ and support local communities and local guides who know and love their region like no other, delighted to share knowledge and are dedicated to looking after our valued passengers.

Environmental responsibility

At WILDFOOT Travel we believe environmental responsibility starts at home (and the work place of course). We encourage recycling of waste as a company and as individuals. Where possible for business use we use public transport. We are also heavily involved with a project to recycle used or damaged binoculars and when repaired send them to employees of National Parks of India where rangers and guides thankfully receive and use them day to day whilst protecting and conserving wildlife.

In addition, we are members of the Association of Arctic Expedition Cruise Operators (AECO) and the International Association of Antarctic Tour Operators (IAATO) where we and our expedition partners agree to a strong code of ethical conduct and responsible travel which works very successfully.

We provide support in certain community based projects within or close to African National Parks. These communities play a major role in the protection of the wildlife and environment in and around these regions where wildlife is sometimes threatened.

Social responsibility

WILDFOOT Travel encourage our valued clients to visit and support overseas local communities where possible to experience village life and strong culture. We do our upmost to involve African lodges within our exciting itineraries which offer great support and a genuine lifeline to the local communities. In many instances these community lodges offer part of their income to these needy regions not to mention employ the villagers who are trained to actually run lodges successfully. In other lodges and accommodations especially those in Botswana, Zambia and Zimbabwe, WILDFOOT Travel encourage and support the sale of local souvenirs and art created by the local people with recycled items like bottles, tires, tin cans etc. within special outlets within the accommodations and lodges
