Safaris as a whole are essential to conservation efforts and support the local economy. By just visiting reserves and natural parks you are contributing to the conservation of landscapes and African Wildlife through your daily entrance fees. Additionally, as much as possible, we try to find the best provider locally for just about everything: picnic lunch, mechanics, marketing collaterals, website designer, etc.
Sustainable accommodations allow you to enjoy high quality and comfortable accommodation that is also sustainable. We partner with lodges and tented camps that are either eco-built, support local communities and promote sustainability in their activities. There is a specific Lodging Company that we often work with that has banned plastic bottles from all their premises, including their offices.
Any element or item used during a safari, such as food, water, knowledge, is used as much as possible in an environmentally friendly manner. We moved away from lunch boxes and decided to invest in canvas-made baskets, ceramic plates, cutlery, and containers to provide high quality and environmental friendly picnic lunch to our guests. Our next challenge is to provide safe drinkable water to our guests without using the plastic water bottles. However, for now, we collect all the plastic bottles and give them to a company that transforms the plastic and creates beautiful furniture with it, that you can often find in those same lodges and tented camps where you stay overnight during the trip.
Crafts & shopping are wonderful ways of keeping the local economy while bringing some of the beauty of Africa back home and also provide for talented and creative locals and their families. We can recommend your local artisans and shops.
