Description of Kenya safari & beach tour
This trip can be tailor made throughout the year to suit your requirements
As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) vacation so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.
PlanetWe work with selected safari camps who are committed to promoting their local communities and to encouraging conservation efforts. Our recommendations will include camps which are focussed on both responsibility and sustainability.
The camps we work with are specifically selected for their fantastic guides and the conscientious approach they have to wildlife. Guides have perhaps the greatest responsibility in respecting wildlife - unfortunately malpractice, interfering with nature to create a more exciting safari, is still common in many parts of Kenya. We only work with camps we've been to ourselves and in many cases we'll even have specific guides to recommend you, so we know that our recommendations meet our high standards.
You will visit several national parks and reserves on this itinerary. In our detailed pre-departure travel pack we have included a note to remind you not leave any litter in the national parks and reserves – everything you carry in, you must carry out. Aside from the environmental damage, litter can be harmful to the wildlife.
Our UK office takes a leading role in setting the standards for an environmentally friendly work environment. We work with local government to recycle our waste and continually look for new ways to be greener.
PeopleThe safari accommodations we promote all have a strong focus on recruiting staff form within their local communities: many aim for at least 75% of their staff coming from their immediate local community. This provides jobs and skills and is one of the most direct ways of positively affecting community development.
Our accommodation choices make use of locally owned properties where possible and often include adventurous, authentic choices such as local homestays which therefore involve local people and their communities in the very fabric of our vacations.
Vacations are locally-guided by knowledgeable locals who possess a wealth of information on the local environment and culture.
We encourage all our travelers to research local customs and read your trip notes before you depart to ensure you are conscientious and respectful in a different culture.
In most cases we strongly recommend that you do not give money to children beggars. If begging is a successful enterprise, parents are encouraged to forsake their children’s education in pursuit of this opportunity.
Talk to us about packing for a purpose and see if you can get involved by making a small material contribution to the communities you are visiting. We have developed partnerships with charities and accommodations throughout Kenya and are constantly working to extend our reach with the help of our travelers.
