Our commitment to conservation
Zambia Safari.com has a commitment to supporting conservation in Zambia to encourage the promotion of sustainable utilisation of the native Flora and Fauna to benefit the local people and thus ensure the future of the African wilderness for the enjoyment of all those who have an interest in Africa and its environment.
To this end a percentage of our profits are returned to conservation projects, anti-poaching and educational projects.
Zambia Safari.com philosophy
We wish to encourage awareness of Conservation and Community projects with our clients as well as their involvement.
We want to ensure that the benefits of tourism are returned to the local conservation and community projects that our clients have the privilege to visit. Profits from Zambia Safari.com are directly returned to the Operators’ own small conservation and community projects.
ALL the ground operators that we use have their own charitable programs such as building and supporting village schools, anti poaching assistance, community health care, village water supply, conservation education projects, tree planting programs, etc.
These are often reliant on donations and are imperative to the success of the local wildlife and community welfare.
Our intention is to promote Africa in a positive and informative manner, to encourage client involvement and local self reliance through the promotion of local employment, improving education availability and the development of traditional skills and crafts.
This should ensure a sustainable future for the local people, all of which is dependant on the preservation of the local wildlife and environment.
ALL OUR REGISTERED SAFARI OPERATORS PROVIDE ECO-SENSITIVE SAFARIS.
