Responsible tourism

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we screen every trip so you can travel knowing your vacation will help support conservation and local people.

Environment
As with all of our luxury vacations, this itinerary has been crafted to ensure that it positively effects the local communities and environments visited.

This itinerary includes trips to some of Zambia's protected areas of natural beauty, including South Luangwa and Lower Zambezi National Parks. By visiting these sites (all entrance fees are included in your luxury tour), you are supporting the preservation and conservation of these areas, and indicating to authorities that tourists are interested in protecting Zambia's incredible natural environments. This, in turn, provides more funding for park rangers and puts more patrols on the ground, which deters and stops poaching.

Whilst out on safari, please ensure that you don’t leave any litter – everything you carry in, you must carry out. Aside from the environmental damage, litter can be harmful to the wildlife. Take a trip to South Luangwa’s Wildlife Education Centre, where you can learn about conservation whilst supporting local schools through your entrance fee.

We also make a special effort to recommend accommodation providers which have responsible and sustainable initiatives. For example, eco-friendly accommodation such as solar-powered Tena Tena, which is owned by the Robin Pope Safaris group.
Community

The Impacts of this Trip

All the local guides referred to in this itinerary are paid a fair wage. We believe that using local guides is important, as it helps generate local incomes and creates jobs, plus it offers a more authentic travel experience.

We recommend independent local hotels, lodges, guesthouses and campsites, rather than international chain hotels, which helps support local communities and allows you to experience true Zambian hospitality. For example, Tena Tena is run by the Robin Pope Safaris group, which is dedicated to responsible tourism initiatives such as supporting local schools, a medical fund for a clinic in Mfuwe and the Zambian Carnivore Programme, amongst many other conservation- and community-based projects.

This luxury Zambia vacation includes the option for cultural experiences, learning about local traditions with trips to local villages such as Kawaza, where you can buy authentic souvenirs like handmade tribal textiles. We believe getting to know the destination and the people who live there means that you will have a more authentic and meaningful travel experience.
