Bear watching specialist

Typically trips are expertly guided by a leading specialist with a good knowledge of the area to be visited. Polar Bears, Grizzly Bears and Spirit Bears are the main focus of attention however most trips also incorporate other fauna and flora highlights of the destination as well. Our trips use local guides and experts and contribute to local conservation projects whenever possible.

Responsible tourism: Kodiak bear tracking tour in Alaska

Environment

A donation from each of these trips sold goes towards helping preserve the Grizzly Bears in Alaska. Clients are made fully aware of how to act; to move out of the way of approaching bears and not to have any food or potent smells that may lead bears to associating humans with food. When around grizzly bears, clients are always accompanied by a skilled and cautious expert guide who will know how to avoid any potentially dangerous situations.

Wherever possible we use environmentally friendly local accommodation. It is not always possible to find eco-friendly accommodation in some remote destinations; if this is the case then we make every effort to alert the management of the accommodation in question to ways of improving their service with the environment in mind.

Our UK operations reflect our standards abroad in that we aim to minimise our impact on the environment as much in the UK as we would do in any of our destination countries. We attempt to do this through recycling of any office waste including, paper, plastic, cans, glass, refuse, in partnership with the Borough of Brighton & Hove.

Responsible tourism is the way forward for travel in the 21st Century; as we destroy more and more of our natural environment we slowly begin to realise how much we need it. When visiting destinations we bear this in mind and remember how privileged we are to be able to see the wildlife and nature that you are visiting, and, in a few years, if no action is taken, the fact that it will no longer be there...

Community

The purpose of our safaris is to contribute to local populations, communities and projects. We give our travelers advice on how to interact with the local population, flora and fauna in order to minimise any negative impact. We encourage the use of local guides in every destination and with every local agent. Even on our specialist led safaris we try to ensure that a local guide is also used. We do not believe in taking jobs from local populations in order to provide for western needs.

Where possible we will always use local suppliers in preference to others whether this is in the purchase of provisions, accommodation, transport or equipment.We believe the best way to learn about and enjoy the experience of being on safari with uss is to make the effort to mingle with the local people, taste new foods and try new experiences.
