Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Tanzania small group tour, savannahs & sands

Environment

How our company is making a difference:
We know that making the positive difference we aim to achieve will not be an easy task. However, our enthusiasm and commitment towards our travel responsibility mission is far stronger than any obstacles. We believe that in order to achieve any objective, the company has to have accurate policies and procedures for the employees and the guests to follow in order to reach our goal.

We have decided that the environment is a major component of any local community and any negative effect on the environment would directly have an impact on the lives of the inhabitants of the local community. Therefore, we have drawn up a strict environmental protection policy that all our employees and travelers have to abide by. For example, we recycle empty ink cartridges. A company collects them and disposes of them the correct manner.

The destruction of the coral reefs is one of the biggest and current environmental threats that Tanzania is facing. Our travelers are briefed not to touch, poke or remove any parts of the coral reefs. Fines are in place and we urge the travelers to adhere to all rules when diving in these areas.
Furthermore, the biggest attraction for people to travel to Tanzania, is the wild life. Humans are the only destruction they may face. Travelers are cautioned not to throw any waste in the game parks. If any of the wild animals consume these, they will most likely die. We encourage them to go back home and spread the world of wild life conservation in terms of protecting the natural habitat, not littering, and possibilities of wild life sponsorship.

Something that seems like such a small and regular thing to do, such as insect spray and deodorant, should also be avoided. Rather make use of roll on insect repellant and deodorant to lower the carbon emissions.

Camping areas that are used on this tour are maintained for both the comfort of the tourists, as well as the safety of both tourists and the surrounding nature. We brief our travelers about the dangers of smoking and self made camp fires. These careless methods may cause very destructive fires.

For us, Responsible Travel is the only way to travel.

Community

Throughout our long tourism business journey, exceeding 15 years of travel operation, we have succeeded in establishing strong links with the communities we are dealing with in the host destinations.

We believe that the Responsible Travel concept has to be a two-way strategy with both the travelers and the local community gaining benefits. We benefit the local communities we visit using a wide scope of activities that have a positive impact on the local economy, directly by donating money to charity organizations, financially supporting some local communities and by recruiting employees who belonging to the local community. We encourage our guests to buy local products and make use of services that people local community offer. We help indirectly through capacity building projects we implement with our employees and through the experiences and culture exchanges that take place between the locals and the travelers during our tours.

We promise to support the local community of every destination we take our travelers to. We will do this by employing local guides, using local handicraft shops and recommend shops to our travelers so that their vacation spending contributes to the people of that country. Furthermore, we provide each traveler with a tipping guide. By doing this we set a concept of tipping and gratuity for every person who will offer a form of service to the traveler.

We have also considered the social aspect of the local community and how to respect the customs and traditions of the inhabitants helping us operate our tours. We always provide our guests with all the information needed to understand the community they are visiting and we create valuable opportunities for the travelers and the locals to mingle and exchange ideas and thoughts.

The first objective is to operate our tours in the most perfect way possible. Our second objective, but not second in importance, is to benefit the local community, protect the environment, and have a positive social impact on the inhabitants living in our host destinations. One of the ways of doing this is to inform and educate our travelers on the cultures of the destinations. By doing this we aim to create a form of respect between the travelers and the local citizens who they will face along their tour.

We educate all our staff on the real life situations of each destination. Sales consultants will use this information to inform potential travelers of the correct information and threats that they may face. By creating long lasting relationships with our local ground handlers, we are able to establish what needs the community has and through their information we can inform our travelers what they can contribute to the local community from their home countries.

Illiteracy in Tanzania is one of the highest in Africa. Travelers are encouraged to bring one or two books with them. These books should preferably be for young children. It is then handed over by our staff to the charity organizers who collect the books and distribute them.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?


The safari where we saw so many animals close up; especially Ngorongoro Crater which was spectacular.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?


To take warm clothes for NgoroNgoro as it is really cold at night plus respectful
clothing for the ferry trips to & from Zanzibar & the Stone Town Day due to rural Moslem traditions.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


I am hoping that we supported local people by visiting a government owned spice plantation rather than a private one & through the employment
of local people throughout the tour.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?


We loved it - 1 adult and 2 teenagers!
