Description of Kenya 5 day safari vacation
This trip can be tailor made throughout the year to suit your requirements
The Big Five are incredible. But for me, the dignity, sustainability, warmth, generosity and wisdom of the Maasai people are the Mara's real Big Five.
Lodge safari vacations give you the best of both worlds. You get to explore the African wilderness in the company of expert guides, but youíll do so fr...
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.
PlanetClients are briefed before proceeding with their safari on what to expect, dos and doníts while at the safari. Which include; ensuring they do not litter the parks or their way to and from the parks as they are provided with trash bins, they should also not feed the animals at the parks or make noise while at safari.
All our tour vehicles have trash cans for proper disposal of waste to avoid disposal of non-degradable that may harm the wildlife. We discourage smoking and loud noise that may cause disturbances to the wildlife.
We encourage our travelers to travel in smaller groups during their trips to various destinations. Handling bigger groups is not easy and they cause stress to the environment
All our driver guides are required to keep by the trails so as to avoid distraction and interference with the wildlife. Our guides are also discouraged from taking bribes to go off the road for good photos and better views, we encourage clients to let the animals come to them without destroying their habitats. Everyone should keep in mind that the wild animals are not like those found in the theme parks, they are not tamed, hence should take extra precautions not to offend them. We ask our clients never buy products made from endangered species.
PeopleThe sole purpose is to bring people from different cultures together, through village visits.The local village visits are included in itineraries so as to promote the communities visited both economically and socially. Most suppliers source their products from the locals around and also help to improve the living standards of the locals by engaging them in agricultural activities such as organic farming, by use manure from the Masai cattle, employing local labor for supply of water and tour guiding clients as they already have knowledge of the environment.
Providing new sources of income through buying of local souvenirs from the cultural communities and also employing locals to be our driver guides since they are the most knowledgeable about the destinationsí culture and other company staff. This ensures easy understanding between the clients and the local communities visited during the tour.
We inform our clients of customs of each country and respect for artifact such as not being tempted to buy ivory, tortoise shells, elephant hair bracelets or any products derived from rhino, elephant or big cat. We ask our clients to always have a free and open mind throughout their tour to avoid judgment and stereotyping cultures. Getting to now and interact with the locals is truly a memorable experience as you get to make life time friends. one attribute of the Masai people is that once they get to interact with people, they immediately acquire life time friends and might even name their cattle and children after the visitors they befriended. How cool would it be to know that there is a family in a totally different country who fell in love with you!
