Responsible Travel

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.

Planet

The importance of protecting the environment is paramount and we have a number of guidelines that our staff follow to reduce the consumption of paper and other consumables wherever possible.

Paper, glass, plastics and even water is recycled and put to good use;

Wherever possible, local produce is featured on the menus. This has the double bonus of supporting local producers, but also reducing emissions from transporting goods into lodges.

A tree-nursery is run, supplying over 30,000 seedlings to the local community. Working with local schools and other bodies to encourage tree-planting within the area, we also arrange tree-planting activities amongst our own staff and guests.

The company that owns the camps takes pro-active steps to ensure the properties and tourism activities are run in an environmentally responsible manner. Solar panels are now a popular way to generate power, harnessing the suns rays.

Guests are informed about the various conservation projects that occur in this region and the impact on wildlife is assisted by limiting the number of vehicles around a sighting in the private conservancies.

People

The importance of protecting the communities in which we operate is one of our highest priorities.

The Kenyan camps host a number of eco-programmes, all of which are designed to support and sustain the natural and human community of which we are a part and provide an eco-friendly tourist destination. Such programmes vary according to need, but presently they are as follows: Subsidized medical care to the local community - particularly in relation to maternal care and child-immunization; also in relation to HIV/AIDS sensitization. An out-reach programme is operated to the orphanages of the area which allows for visits from staff, the provision of funds, the hosting of seasonal events and the provision of clothing and foodstuffs. The camp works closely with the local Ereri Multi-Cultural Community Manyatta, in the promotion of cultural dance, music, traditional practices and in the promotion of local handicrafts.

Both temporary and permanent jobs are created for the local community, together with training and work-exposure programmes for school leavers.
We encourage interface between our guests and the local villages - hosting tours and promoting the sale of handicraft items.

We showcase cultural dance, costume, singing and cultural craft as part of our corporate undertaking to support and sustain the cultural heritage of our nation. We work with a number of local schools, both by providing educational materials and by hosting environmental training sessions for the pupils.

Local community members are employed, with good working conditions, training opportunities, prospects for the future and a fair wage.
