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
Lewa Safari Camp is a very eco friendly camp built in a way that it blended well to the surroundings. It has been rated gold for its facilities. The entire Lew conservancy model combines the protection of wildlife, community development and sustainable tourism. The permanent tented camp is built on low environmental footprint. The tents are made of green, beige and brown colors combined with grass roof thatch that blends in with the natural environment. The camp supports conservation initiatives done by LWF (Laikipia Wildlife Forum) and NRT (Northern Rangelands Trust). In addition, forty percent of the camp’s profits go back to conservation annually.

Sand River Mara also has an eco friendly rating. Solar is only provided for hot water and there is a borehole which supplies water. It was refurbished in 2019 with a modern, low-impact philosophy in mind.

We choose eco-sensitive properties that have a limited impact on their direct environment and encourage guests to be aware of their consumption of natural resources during their trip.
Community

The Impacts of this Trip

Lewa Safari Cam- - aims to educate neighbouring communities on the socio-economic benefits of wildlife conservation as well as minimising human-wildlife conflict. The facility purchases locally where possible; fruits and vegetables are bought from neighboring Borana Ranch. Products such as milk, meat for staff meals, honey is obtained from Meru through local suppliers. Curios and artifacts sold at the camp are sourced from the local communities through the Northern Rangeland Trust (NRT). The camp is a member of “Pack for a Purpose” initiative where visitors are encouraged to donate items that may be of need in their areas of travel. Lewa Safari Camp as an entity of Lewa Wildlife Conservancy contributes through payment of conservancy fees. Some of the monies are used for community development around the conservancy. The Camp offers village visits to ILngwesi where the visitors are sensitized on the local culture, engages in sports activities e.g. arrows and spears throwing and dances and the proceeds are directed to the locals.

In support of women empowerment in Africa through the means of travel, we our company has partnered with Project Brave Foundation, a non-profit organization focused on uplifting marginalized women and children in South Africa.

Our carefully selected suppliers in Africa support responsible travel and actively work to empower the local communities in the area that they operate in. Our team can recommend a number of vetted initiatives and organizations to add to your itinerary that will allow you to connect with the people and culture of the destination that you visit.
