Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Zambia big cat safari

Zambia went through a very bad patch of poaching with hundreds of elephants being killed for their ivory. With the tourism trade booming the local communities can see the benefit of keeping these animals alive. Guides and staff are employed from the local villages as they have the best knowledge of the area, maximizing your experience and also providing a reliable source of income for the community.

By doing this safari you will benefit the local community directly. Proceeds from part of the safari are used to improve the conditions of the schools in the area as well as subsidize teacher’s salaries and sponsor students who go onto secondary school. Part of the money you spend on this safari goes into the fund that supports this local school system.

Many of the camps and lodges are seasonal bush camps that are dismantled during the rainy season. This gives the environment a chance to recover from the minimal impact caused.

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 do this through recycling of any office waste including, paper, plastic, cans, glass, refuse, in partnership with the Borough of Brighton and Hove. 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 advise people not to bargain just for the sake of it and because it is the “thing to do”; you should pay what you feel the object is worth to yourself and the vendor, bearing in mind local cultures, society and standard of living.
