Responsible tourism

Botswana & Namibia adventure vacation, 13 days

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

Overland Trucks - This tour is enjoyed on one of our privately owned expedition vehicles purpose built for overland driving. The trucks all comply with strict Euro IV emissions control regulations set by the EU and the vehicles are all checked and maintained by our drivers, employed from within east or southern Africa. Our trucks are all equipped with long range fuel tanks, spare parts, tools and maintenance equipment leaving them self-sufficient for long periods of time.

The trucks are equipped with a 500 litre water tank for times when the tap water is not of a high enough quality to drink. Passengers are encouraged to fill up their water bottles from the tap or water tank rather than replace them with more plastic bottles.

Food is purchased from local markets and supermarkets taking in to account the food in season. Any waste, food or otherwise is destroyed in an environmentally friendly way and recycling is implemented where there are facilities available.

Throughout this trip we stay in small locally run hotels and also bush camps, for example in the Okavango Delta in Botswana.We constantly make sure to leave nothing but footprints behind.

Community

It is important to preserve the tribal culture of south African communities and we work with community projects towards this. In Kamanjab we visit local communities in their villages. In most cases, we are invited in to their homes and taught about their lives, challenges, traditions and their way of life. Not only is this a very humbling excursion, but there are opportunities to support these communities in some way.

Tour Leaders encourage travelers to donate school materials or clothing however money and food is never given directly to the community to prevent a begging mentality.

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


In Chobe, watching a leopard up in a tree wrestle with his day-old kudu kill.
Pulling it through big branches, almost dropping it. Then, it crawled down the tree trunk, walked right by our truck, then plopped down in front of us for a rest. Once in a lifetime experience!

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


Don’t go to Africa with just your cellphone camera! Silliest mistake we’ve ever made. We saw Big 5, cheetahs w 3 cubs, black rhino, etc. All just blurs when enlarged on iPhone. Very frustrating. Light-weight, cool clothes.

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


Yes, in that we shopped in local markets for our group lunches and snacks. We ate dinners and tipped well in local restaurants, and interacted with locals when we could. Without tourism, these countries would be in trouble—esp with the 3-yr drought.

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


Loved most of it. Our group of 10 were extremely well-traveled, so they didn’t
get all upset when some issue came up. And they always do. We adored our
tour guide, “Ash” and our driver, “Vin Diesel.”
