Description of Wildlife safari and whale watching in South Africa
This trip can be tailor made throughout the year to suit your requirements
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.
PlanetEach safari provides a real wildlife viewing and conservation experience.
By opting for a safari with us safari guests are already helping to contribute towards our conservation work. In addition guests are afforded the opportunity to gain an insight into real African conservation work if they wish. In this way we hope guests will help to spread the message of what real African conservation is and what the needs are.
All of our food, bathroom and kitchen supplies are from local sources and as far as possible, we aim to use a combination of organic, fair-trade and sustainable products.
We believe that everyone is able to help make a difference towards conserving our environment. When on safari or on the beach, we operate a policy of ‘bring out what you take in’ i.e. we leave no litter or man made products behind.
PeopleWhile on safari we recommend that visitors buy locally produced goods and support local artisans. In this way, visitors are able to help sustain the local community, contribute towards conservation and enrich their own lives. During each safari there will be opportunities to purchase goods from local artists, market stalls and restaurants in keeping with the ideals of fair trade. Our guides will advise on a ‘fair price’ if requested, however it is worth noting that a relatively small sum can make a huge difference to peoples lives in Africa and guests are asked to consider this when bargaining with market stallholders.
Our safari staff are all recruited locally and encouraged to develop within the organisation to achieve their goals and where applicable to produce conservation based items for sale (100% of the proceeds going to the originator). On arrival, we hold an informal chat with guests to explain our conservation work and how they are able to contribute during their safari. A travelers’ code of conduct is also issued with each bespoke safari itinerary.
