An African Dung Beetle - critical to maintaining a healthy ecosystem

An African Dung Beetle - critical to maintaining a healthy ecosystem

No Footprint

'Leave the environment as we find it' - a mantra of our team and partners when working in South Africa.

Ecosystems are incredibly sensitive to contamination and susceptible to unintentional damage caused by visitors.  So, whether it's the type of washing detergents we advise travellers take with them, watching out for Dung Beetles as we travel through the bush, or, having rigid disciplines for how much rubbish we generate and how it is managed, we take great care to minimise our impact and try to ensure the only footprint we leave in the bush, is the one left by the soles of our boots.

In addition to 'flight tax' you pay (that incudes a charge for envirnomental impact), we will pay the carbon off-set of approximately £9 per person for everyone we work with in South Africa.  This money supports green initiatives such as new forestation.
