Responsible & Sustainable Tourism
We are passionate about Africa and recognise that in carrying out our work as a tour operator we have a responsibility to respect other cultures and ways of life.
We aim to maximise the benefits our clients’ travels can bring to an area, and we aim to be responsible in all our dealings in the areas of environmental, social and economic impact.
We believe in relationships and that great work ethic fosters great working relationships.
In Africa we work generally with small camps and lodges who understand that in the long term they will benefit from working in a responsible way. They protect their local environment, its flora, fauna and landscapes; they respect local cultures and try and benefit local communities through employment, sourcing of supplies and support of local schools, healthcare facilities and other community projects; they minimise their impact on their environment.
Camps would be delighted to chat with clients about this, often overlooked, area of their work.

Within our offices we have reviewed our working practices and as far as possible we aim to reduce the resources we use. We reuse scrap paper and recycle as much of our waste as possible.
Our custom itineraries for each client is available online as a free App with a unique code to each client (secure), it can be downloaded onto any smart phone; we only print itineraries where required and requested by a client.
We encourage our clients to act responsibly when on tour and safaris and provide information in our pre-departure information notes.
We are proud members of Pack for a Purpose, an initiative that allows travellers like you to make a lasting impact in the community at your travel destination.
If you save just a few kilos of space in your suitcase and take supplies for the projects we support in need, you’ll make a priceless impact in the lives of our local children and families.
