Responsible tourism: Sri Lanka wildlife photography tour

Environment

We believe in the power of photography; the power to create incredible experiences, and the power to make a positive impact. That’s why we founded our own Trust, a non-profit organisation that uses photography to make a positive impact on both a social and conservation level. We finance the running costs of the Trust, so by just by joining one of our workshops, you're indirectly contributing. (So all you have to do to make a difference is have the photo adventure of a lifetime!) Through this Trust, we provide free professional photography to charities doing environmental and conservation work; images they can use for fundraising and communication purposes.

Ethical Practices during Game Drives:
Our local guides are well-trained and taught to keep conservation of the area and well-being of the wildlife a priority during all game drives. We stick to the roads of the park to ensure minimum damage to the jungle.

Accommodation Environmental Policies:
We’ll be staying in a semi-permanent camp with minimum environmental impact. We don’t dispose waste at the camp site. It is separated and taken to a nearby garbage recycling centre. We use solar energy at our camp.

At our office in Cape Town, we recycle, compost, and minimise the use of paper by predominantly working with digital files.

Carbon Footprint Compensation:
To compensate for our carbon footprint, we sponsor a tree for each participant, which is planted by Greenpop in their reforestation or urban greening programs in Southern Africa. We'll give you a ‘tree ring,’ a key ring that has the coordinates of their tree, so that you know exactly where it’s growing.

Community

Apart from supporting conservation initiatives through our photography, we also support social nonprofits. We provide free professional photography to charities that do valuable work and can use the images for fundraising purposes.

Through our Trust, we also run PhotoVoice workshops for youth in underprivileged South African communities. We identify talented young individuals with an interest in and talent for photography, and provide workshops where we encourage them to tell their stories, and the stories of their communities, through photography. We teach them creative self-expression, and the power visual images can have. Participants are encouraged to raise awareness about issues that matter most to them, which stimulates positive activism.

If you join this photo safari, you'll automatically contribute to these initiatives, as we fund the running costs of the Trust.

Supporting Local Economy:
All staff at our accommodation in Yala National Park are employed from the local communities. All staff members receive high quality training at nearby partner hotels, an above average wage, and great working conditions. They also receive quarterly bonuses.
