CSR - Corporate Social Responsibility
This is our home, our workplace, and we respect it with the highest principle.
We remain fully committed to developing our work ethics & philosophies, to better the quality of life for those in our community and ecosystems we promote. It is our moral duty to ‘give Back', and to provide the communities we visit with the tools and education they need to improve their lives now and for generations ahead. As a result, all our tours follow a stringent set of responsible tourism guidelines. This includes ensuring the communities we work with can benefit as much as possible from tourism, whilst minimising any negative impact to the environment. Many travellers want to help in making a positive difference, yet knowing which conservation programme to donate to or contribute towards can become an overwhelming decision. At Bushtrek Safaris, we will provide you with all the information you require to make the choice that is right for you. In doing so we guarantee that you will be able to contribute directly to those who require it most. From animal conservation to local communities.
Our responsibility extends to one of the most important elements of your safari, the animals themselves. Ranging from simple recycling awareness to helping to educate clients regarding animal conservation. Protecting the fragile ecosystems you will visit is of paramount importance to us.
We will ensure positive steps are taken to educate clients on cultural respect and customs, so as not to offend local communities/tribes, such as the Maasai. All our drivers and guides encourage our clients to recycle where possible, that engines & propellers are turned off when departing the vehicles & small aircraft.
Providing an opportunity to ‘Give Back’ on a more personal level, many of our tours can include visits to local artisans and small business owners selling handmade goods so clients can purchase directly from the local source.
We have no outside shareholders or directors, nor equity relationships with international conglomerates. So that our ownership can efficiently and promptly respond to the needs of our clientele using the very best of local creative talent in combination with expertise of our extensive regional and international service providers.
We call this part of the world our home, as a result we can drive to create unique and cost effective travel products and services that can create an unequalled safari experience for our traveller.
