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

Economic responsibility

Pega Tours was founded in the principal of making Kenya a memorable tourist destination, in that regards, we have taken employing local people as the first priority thus creating employment to our local youths that makes them earn a living and we have seen a lot of benefits by that employment as it has reduced in-security among youths.

We also offer internship to students form different tourism institutions, thus exposing that to their career.

We support local suppliers on food, such us eggs, fruits, chicken and vegetables as we purchase them during the safari. We deliver them to our camping sites that we use for accommodation.

In Chazon centre, we have funded a project for woman who keeps chicken for meat, eggs and also cows. With the project they are able to have their produce also that we use in the camp, distribute to our local hotels and also the local people.

With the increment of the children in the centre, we have funded a dinning hall and a dormitory for the kids that has kept the kids comfortable for them to achieve their dream, thus separating the kids as per their age.

To encourage volunteers who visit Chazon, we offer safaris to different destinations at subsided prices as a kind of incentives to them.

Environmental responsibility

In the Pega Tours office, we minimise use of papers by putting information of our brochures in flash disks and compact disks instead of printing them.
We also do most of our marketing of our services online using social media instead of printing papers and distributing them around which could lead to more dumping therefore polluting the environment.

We also suggest to our customers to ensure that they use water appropriately in their destinations by ensuring that they do not leave taps running thus helping with water conservation.

We also encourage the clients to take a bath in the evening after the safari as opposed to twice a day therefore also conserving the water use.

It is always our priority to teach our clients on appropriate measures to conserve our environment by ensuring that we have dust bins in the tour vehicles. This minimises littering of our parks.

We also ensure that the drivers are trained on the importance of conserving our ecosystem therefore we encourage them to use the roads that are designated by the Kenya wildlife service as opposed to stepping on the park grasses.

Drivers are also encouraged to ensure that they do not play loud music in the parks as this would distort the animals

We buy water for the guests in bulk and use metal glasses that we wash and re use after the trip instead of using disposable plastic glasses.

Effective 2019, the government of Kenya implemented ban on the use of plastic bags which have also implemented in our company. We ensure that no packaging is done using polythene bags, rather we use metal hot dishes to serve packed lunches to our customers.

We also support local growers by purchasing local food products from them such as eggs, fruits and vegetables that are used in our camping sites where we offer accommodation to our clients.

Lastly we participate in the cycle with Rhino initiative that aims at conserving the Lake Nakuru National Park as well as protecting the indigenous species of Rhinos in the park.
Last year’s event attracted more than 62 cyclists including 25 children.
The funds collected from the race were used for the rehabilitation of Lake Nakuru National Park’s 74 KM baboon-proof electric fence as well as support on going community-based conservation projects to protect the fragile ecosystem.

Social responsibility

We Pega tours always provide customers with adequate information on the destination they with to visit, that is, we explain the kind of people they expect to meet and how to relate with them.

On the other side we have a ground person whom we call to get the first hand information on the political situation before we send our guest to any destination.

We always pre-prepare our customer that when they visit a certain community they must adapt in their way of living as it differs from each community. We encourage the customer to focus on preserving the local culture and create interest with it.

For our customers to feel safe and secure, we provide an all-time guide to tour with them in the local community as it can have a challenge to our customers due to language barrier.

We also encourage the customers to visit destinations that benefit the local communities. For example during a trip to Masai mara national park, we schedule a visit to the Masai village whereby the locals charge the tourists to take them on a tour around the village. This is usually also a chance for the customers to purchase local souvenirs from the community.
