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

We know the wildlife of Northern Tanzania very well and are wholly committed to its protection and conservation. Tarangire, the Serengeti and the Ngorongoro Crater boast impressive populations of wildlife, with resident species including lion, leopard, cheetah, African wild dog, serval, caracal, spotted hyena, black rhino, elephant, buffalo, giraffe and much more. This tour is also specifically designed to take in destinations including Simba Farm Lodge and Arusha National Park, where wildlife densities are perhaps slightly lower, but the species present are no less valuable. In particular, Harvey's duiker and Abbott's duiker are very rarely seen and their presence in these ecosystems are truly invaluable. Northern Tanzania is an extremely popular safari destination and, unfortunately, the demands of guests sometimes mean that guides do not act appropriately. We always take into account the sensitivity of wildlife and ecosystems and act ethically and appropriately. We will never drive offroad unless absolutely necessary, and will never remain at a sighting if there are too many vehicles present, or if our presence is distressing the animal or causing it to change its behaviour. We will never stay for an extended period at a sighting of a young, injured or otherwise vulnerable animal, particularly after dark. The migration is an incredible honour to witness and a remarkable spectacle, but this too can be interrupted by poor guiding practice. We will never drive across the path of a migrating herd or attempt to cajole an animal into crossing a body of water.

People

It is absolutely vital to our mission that local people derive genuine benefits from ecotourism. It is imperative that our visit adds value to wildlife and ecosystems and, therefore, serves to better protect them for future generations. As such, we insist that all of our local suppliers employ local people, and you should expect your guides, drivers, housekeeping staff and ecoguards to be Tanzanian. Your tour leader is British, French or American, and their presence is to ensure your safety, the smooth running of the tour and to provide expert mammal-watching knowledge, but day to day guiding will be conducted by a local partner.

All of our clients are asked to treat local people and communities with the utmost respect, particular when it comes to their culture, tradition and religion. In particular, we ask clients to dress modestly when possible, and to always be patient and kind in all interactions with local people. When visiting busy safari destinations, it can be frustrating when guiding standards are lower than we would like, but we do insist that clients are patient when confronted with this.
