Over the years travelers have become more aware of the importance of responsible and sustainable tourism. Unfortunately, many companies have taken advantage of this concept and participated in what is known as ‘Greenwashing’, claiming to have a positive impact and give back to people, places and the planet when in fact they are not.
Tanzania is one of the more expensive African safari destinations, due to many external factors, including higher operational costs than most destinations. As you will have realised it’s very competitive and there are lots of choices. But buyer beware, oftentimes lower priced trips, both here and anywhere in the world, usually means something is being sacrificed. It’s could service standards, safety or comfort, but it’s usually the local workers who will suffer the most.
We believe in total transparency to our clients, our teams and our communities, and would like to share with you what makes travelling with African Scenic Safaris different from many other companies.
Every traveler, every itinerary, has an opportunity to drive economic empowerment in our communities. This means supporting local businesses, boosting employment, and ensuring that your money has a positive impact on the communities you visit.
We are committed to the protection of biodiversity and wildlife, utilising local resources and waste reduction. This not only dictates where we travel, but also the experiences we create and services we provide.
Whilst we don’t have all the answers and recognise this is a philosophy and process that continues to evolve, we are committed to giving back and to remaining industry leaders here in East Africa, on the continent and within the global tourism industry.
