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 care deeply about the ecosystems, people and wildlife of Cameroon and the Central African Republic. We recognise that the tri-national protected area, of which Lobeke and Dzanga-Sangha are a part, is of global importance to biodiversity and must be treasured, protected and conserved. We therefore are wholly committed to protecting the wildlife and ecosystems of this area during this tour. We recognise that many of the species we may see here, including forest elephant, forest buffalo, bongo and many others, are threatened or endangered. With this in mind, we will only observe wildlife ethically and responsibly during this tour. Most wildlife-viewing is conducted on foot, and we will never approach a wild animal that we deem to be likely to be distressed by our presence. We will never pursue an animal that has chosen to move away from us. We are very likely during this tour to encounter wildlife at night using spotlights and thermal monoculars - we will never spotlight an animal that is young, injured or otherwise vulnerable, and we will always strive to avoid spotlighting diurnal animals.

We adopt a philosophy that dictates that our presence in the ecosystems we visit should have a negligible impact. In practice, this means that we ask clients to avoid doing anything that might damage these ecosystems, such as littering or damaging flora. Clients should remain on established tracks as far as possible, and we ask that clients take reasonable steps to limit their water usage during their stay. We ask that single-use plastics are avoided during the entirety of this tour.

People

It is imperative to the success of conservation initiatives that ecotourism delivers genuine, long-lasting benefits to local people and the communities of which they are a part. By delivering these benefits, responsible operators play their part in allowing local people to attach value to the wildlife and ecosystems we cherish, which in turn does a huge amount to secure a future for these ecosystems. With this in mind, we insist that local suppliers employ local people. In Cameroon, clients should expect that their drivers, cooks, ecoguards and local guide are all Cameroonian. In the Central African Republic, clients should expect that all housekeeping staff, cooks and guides are from the local area.

We encourage clients to take the opportunity to interact with local people as often as possible. In Dzanga-Sangha in particular there are several opportunities to meet members of the local Ba'aka population - we remind clients that they are ambassadors for all ecotourists and we have a zero-tolerance for any disrespectful behaviour towards local people during this tour. Any such behaviour may result in clients being removed from this tour. We ask that clients, in addition to being respectful towards all local people, dress appropriately and avoid taking photos of people without their expressed consent during this tour.
