Description of Zimbabwe tailor made vacations
This trip can be tailor made throughout the year to suit your requirements
We cater for both vegetarians and vegans.
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 want our customers to enjoy an experience led vacation within a natural environment. To do this we use partners and suppliers who are guardians of their surroundings. This means that they look after the local environment they are responsible for, as well as encouraging employment, and revenue generation, for the local population.
Where we can, we use partners that adhere to sustainability practises. Due to the location of a of our partners in this itinerary they actively look to minimise energy and water usage through the use of solar power, and rain water collection. A lot of our partners are based in, or own, conservancies which have been created to protect the local wildlife population and means that they can focus on maintaining the natural environment within their boundaries. Some of the cost of your vacation goes to maintaining these conservancies and protect the environment within them.
The use of National Parks within our itineraries is widespread, with all park fees going directly to the local authorities responsible for maintaining and protecting the and flora and fauna within the parks.
We encourage of our customers to reduce the use of one use plastics. Using a reusable bottle is one of our suggestions. The camps and lodges within this itinerary will gladly fill up your bottle.
Shared game drives are also encouraged. This puts less stress on the environment and is less of a distraction to the wildlife. All of the guides that accompany you on these drives are expertly trained and will make sure that all actions undertaken whilst game viewing are responsible and have the wildlife front of mind.
PeopleWe align ourselves with partners who actively work with the local communities, whether this means that they are employing the local population, involved in conservation efforts within the local tribal community, or educating the local population with an aim to encourage them to look after their environment. One of your full days at Elephant's Eye Camp can be spent on game drives, enjoying guided walks and spending time with the local communities that the lodge supports. For those interested, there will also be a chance to visit the interesting Painted Dog Conservation Centre, one of the leading conservation projects in Hwange.
Wherever we can, and especially when our customers request it, we include visits to community projects, and local villages so that our customers can interact with the local population, and if the local village/tribe so wish, they have the opportunity to sell locally made crafts.
Pre-travel all of our customers are presented with what we call a ‘travel pack’. Within this travel pack our customers receive all the detail about their trip. The detail includes useful information on the destinations they are traveling to, including, but not limited to, the social and political situations within the destination. We also give guidelines on what to pack to try and minimise the amount of luggage our customers take resulting in lower fuel usage on planes and other vehicles.
Where possible our partners use local guides, as they know the land, wildlife, and environment the best. This results in a higher customer experience, gives them a greater understanding of the fragile balance of the area they’re visiting, and means that a local person is being employed!
