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
We know the wildlife and ecosystems of Northern Uganda very well and are wholly committed to protecting them as far as possible. We are keenly aware of the deep importance of Kidepo Valley and Murchison Falls to Uganda and East Africa as a region. Both of these national parks are strongholds for savanna species in Uganda, supporting lion, leopard, buffalo and elephant in good numbers. Kidepo Valley is the last remaining habitat for cheetah in Uganda, and Murchison Falls supports important populations of giant forest hog, bunyoro rabbit, Rothschild's giraffe and shoebill stork. Kidepo Valley is the only national park in Uganda home to dry-country species such as aardwolf and lesser kudu. Ziwa is an important sanctuary for white rhino, but also for many species of birdlife, including shoebill stork.

This itinerary includes several game drives and night drives. We will never view an animal if our presence is deemed by the tour leader to be causing the animal distress, or is likely to make the animal behave in an unnatural way. We will never remain at a sighting when it has become too crowded for the welfare of the animal to be guaranteed. At night, we forbid flash photography, and will never spotlight a diurnal animal. We will never spotlight a young animal, an injured animal, or an animal that is otherwise vulnerable.
Community

The Impacts of this Trip

It is vitally important that local people and the communities they come from see direct and tangible benefits from ecotourism. This, in turn, ensures that local people see value in wildlife and ecosystems that require preservation, which helps to ensure the long-term survival of threatened wildlife and ecosystems. With this in mind, we insist that our suppliers throughout this itinerary employ local people wherever possible. As such, clients should expect their guides, drivers, cooks and housekeeping staff throughout the itinerary to be Ugandan, in addition to your tour leader who will come from the UK, France or the USA.

We strongly encourage clients to visit, and consider contributing to, local conservation projects throughout the tour. In particular, clients are able to learn more about rhino conservation in Ziwa and shoebill conservation in Ziwa and Murchison Falls from leading Ugandan conservationists. We also ask clients to consider making gratuity payments to local people who have made their stay in Uganda particularly memorable.
