Responsible Travel Africa

A safari superpower and a natural marvel, Africa has few rivals when it comes to natural beauty. Stunning, from the scorching heat of the savannah to the shimmering sea, the country plays host to many a diverse eco-system. The continent’s natural bounty means are fewer places on earth where it is more obvious that tourism and conservation are inextricably linked.

Without protecting these areas through conservation, you risk losing the beauty that incites so many of us to travel, but without visitors, you lose vital funds that support conservation projects - and on-and-on the downward spiral continues. There is a light at the end of the tunnel - with a surge of sustainable lodges and destinations across Africa paving the way towards a more ethical and environmentally friendly way of travelling, there has never been a better time to become aware of, and interested in, travelling responsibly.

From our 100% carbon-off setting of air and ground travel, to our team of responsible travel experts, we are big on travelling ethically and want to make sure we are shouting about places that take a similar approach to travel. Our incredible team are pros at knowing the best places when it comes to responsible travel in Africa, so you can make an informed decision before you travel and decide where you want your money to go.

Whether you want to join Rhinos without Borders for a few days and assist with relocating rhinos in South Africa and Botswana, your donations go towards funding their vital work, or you might want to head to the deep jungles of Uganda to trek in search of Gorillas. Your presence means more funds go towards protecting the gorilla's habitat and improving the income of the local people - which has a knock-on effect: the more they see the benefit of tourism, the more they will seek to support it. You might want to stay in a fully sustainable lodge while on safari or make an effort to support local community projects. Every little choice and change makes a difference when it comes to responsible travel, so we are on hand to recommend some of the best choices in this new frontier of travel.
