Responsible tourism

Zimbabwe vacation, walking and wildlife

Carbon reduction

Your vacation will help support local people and conservation. We must also reduce CO2. Learn about the CO2 emissions of this vacation and how to reduce them.

Environment

Local Crafts and Culture:
We stop at local craft markets where passengers get the opportunity to purchase locally produced goods. We visit the Great Zimbabwe ruins, the maintenance of which is funded in part by revenue generated by tourism.

Accommodation & Meals:
We predominantly use small businesses for accommodation in order to keep investment local and benefit the communities we visit. Almost all meals are provided and our local tour leader will endeavour to source fresh produce wherever possible.

A Fair Deal:
We work closely with our local operator and ensure that all of our guides are local and that in exchange for their expertise on the wildlife, environment and culture that they are paid and treated fairly. The leaders will give a briefing on Responsible Tourism issues to help understand how you can help reduce your impact and maximise the benefits to the local community from your visit. By supporting and employing these people we are helping to ensure that their wildlife areas, scenic beauty and historical significance generate value for the community and are therefore appreciated and protected from development and exploitation.

Conservation:
We visit a number of national parks including Nyangani, Chimanimani, Matobo and Hwange. Conservation work in these parks is largely funded by tourism revenue. Matobo, in particular, is at the forefront of rhino conservation and anti-poaching efforts.

Plastic:
We encourage passengers to bring water bottles and provide them with drinkable water in an effort to reduce plastic waste.

Charity:
Our local suppliers support the Save Our Sausage Trees initiative in Botswana, which aims to address the issue of depleting forests in the area. The Mokoro is a boat used by the people of the Okavango Delta and it is crafted traditionally out of a single mature Kigelia Africana tree (or sausage tree). Although increased tourism has had some obvious benefits to the area, this has also brought a higher demand for Mokoro boats and therefore more trees are being cut down. As a wooden Mokoro only lasts about 5 years, there are hundreds of these trees being felled per year and not enough to sustain this. We have consulted with the Okovango community, and we have agreed to pay half the price of a fibreglass Mokoro if a poler wants to purchase the other half, in order to save the trees.

UK Office:
It all starts at home so we have first worked at reducing our carbon footprint in our UK Offices. Through energy conservation measures and recycling policies, we are proud to be actively reducing the waste produced and our impact on the environment. We support various projects all over the world to try and give something back to the places we visit.
