1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?
The lions and leopards in the Serengeti and watching eagles fishing over Lake Victoria.
2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?
Expect long drives on bumpy and dusty roads. Itís worth it to get to the Serengeti, but painful at the time. The tour may have over 20 people which makes taking photos on game drives difficult when youíre on the tour operator's truck. Remember you are joining an existing trip so those already on the tour may have formed a clique so may not be welcoming of new travelers.
3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?
To some extent. We were given cotton shopping bags and provided with drinking water so we could reduce single use plastic bottles.
4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?
OK. Great wildlife, if you go at the right time of year.
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.
PlanetAs a company we aim to contribute to the environmental preservation of the destinations we visit and to reduce any negative impacts our operations may have. This translates to actions such as using local transport where safe to do so in order to reduce emissions, observing all national and marine park visitor rules and operating a Ďtake in, take back outí waste management system, to name but a few examples. Through our inhouse foundation we also invest money into environmental initiatives that benefit the planet, including restoring kelp forests to help reverse the effects of global warming and protecting endangered species such as sea turtles and elephants.
PeopleWe believe strongly in low impact tourism and so during this trip we use existing locally owned facilities and camp ground such as the one used in Kisi on the first night. By using locally owned and run facilities we are helping the local communities that we visit.
You will have an opportunity to shop for local sculptures and textiles at a bustling Musoma market during this trip, there is an optional boat ride on Lake Victoria and a trip to the small island where sardine farming is the main industry. The time we spend here will again benefit the local community.
