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

Group Size
We are passionate about minimising the negative impacts that tourism may cause. A pillar of our travel philosophy is our belief in small group sizes. Our maximum capacity for this trip to Namibia is just 10 travelers. Not only does this minimise the negative impacts on the destinations we visit, but it also provides a more immersive and intimate local travel experience.

Reducing use of Single-use plastics
All of our travelers to Namibia are provided with cloth bags and reusable water bottles at the beginning of their trip to help them avoid single-use plastics such as plastic shopping bags and disposable water bottles. Further to this, we instruct our suppliers in Namibia to provide large tanks of potable water for group vehicles. We also encourage the hotels and lodges that host our groups to provide safe and reliable water at refill stations. These simple but effective measures can have a considerable impact and drastically reduce the amount of waste generated during each expedition. It also has the added benefit of helping our Namibian partners operate in a more sustainable manner.

Supporting local projects & communities
Our operator in Namibia is co-owned by five Himba conservancies - comprising about 3000 semi-nomadic herders. As such, they won the 2014 community category of the Global Vision Award. All of the staff that represent us in Namibia, even the camp chef, are working in Namibia's cutting-edge community-based conservation program.
The expeditions we run in Namibia passes through the co-owner conservancies and contribute to the local economy, which links tourism directly to conservation by staying in conservancy owned camp sites. For example, the 10-bed lodge, Etaambura, where our guests spend two or three nights is also co-owned by these conservancies, with the conservancy in which the lodge is built having a 40% share. This conservancy gets a bed-night levy per night for each guest staying there paid quarterly. Conservancies use these funds and other income from tourism to pay for their conservancy game guards, lion rangers and community rhino monitors.

Local suppliers
We want to make sure that as much money as possible generated from our expeditions stays in Namibia. We work with local guides and drivers and purchase from a range of local suppliers to ensure the economic benefits of travel are spread amongst the local communities in the destinations we visit.

We avoid using large international chain hotels and campsites, and instead across Nambia work with locally owned properties such as the family run Little Kulala Lodge in the Kulala Wilderness Reserve and the Onguma Tented Camp in the Etosha National Park. Our experiences are also tailored to benefit local communities and provide meaningful connections with them such as our experience with our hosts from the Himba tribe, who share with our group their efforts to manage and protect wildlife.
