Responsible Tourism

Aardwolf Africa Adventure strives to collaborate with world leaders in responsible tourism to give back to nature in return for engaging with its flora and fauna. We work towards community empowerment projects such as skill development programs in schools, health clinics to empower the rural masses residing close to the national parks or conservation areas.

We make sure communities benefit from complete or partial possession of land primarily set for nature tourism. Many communities are compensated for loss of livestock through predators. Former poachers have turned themselves in and contributed their services positively in community development by accepting positions of trained guides or game scouts for foreign tourists.

The park fee that tourists pay on their visit to these conservation areas includes conservation fee that goes straight to the communities or the management of the confined areas to be used in their development.

The camps & lodges have been developed to rely on solar power in order to conserve power and use it efficiently. To stop the usage of single use plastic in the lodges and campsites there are plans to replace these items with more sustainable products.

Eco-Tourism is a vital industry in Kenya and is not just a major foreign exchange earner but also a major player in the conservation of wildlife. By promoting responsible travel it creates job opportunities for the local people and also facilitates reduction of over reliance on other economic sectors such as agriculture.

Aard Wolf Adventure Impact

Aardwolf Africa Adventure believes responsible tourism begins with us. We therefore train our guides and staff to inform our guests about some basic regulations and guidelines to help protect our environment as follows

  • Do not overcrowd a wild animal or create stress to an animal.
  • Do not drive off-road to avoid causing countless damage to the environment
  • Keeping in mind animal rights and acting accordingly.
  • Do not manipulate the hunting patterns of the animals

What do we gain from this you would ask? Well, all good things come around and contributing fairly to the environment is like gifting nature. By doing things right we are gifting our children and grandchildren the joy of experiencing the serenity of nature and wildlife which is quick to dissipate.

Even small gestures like throwing the garbage in the bin, maintaining necessary proximity from the wild, not disturbing the ecology goes a long way in sustainable or responsible tourism in Kenya. We, therefore, request our guests to follow the prerequisite guidelines of Aardwolf Africa Adventure regarding cleanliness and safety that will be provided to you by your guides to assist you in giving back to the environment.

Volunteerism

What many of our clients choose to do on their tour to Kenya is to participate in volunteering programs that are undertaken by different NGOs. This form of tourism is quite a popular trend today and many youngsters especially are coming up to chip in their talents, skills, and labor to the service of the rural communities. These volunteer programs include teaching at primary level schools, skill training programs to empower women, teaching at blind schools or working for the disabled, working towards educating the tribal communities, etc.

Many of these volunteers choose multi-day, single-day, or longer-term visits to the local community villages and work with various NGOs towards the empowerment and upliftment programs of these communities. These volunteers can also work on managing natural resources. This means they motivate other tourists to act sustainably and work towards preserving their immediate surroundings.

These developments in preserving the biological resources and improving the behaviour of tourists trickle down eventually to the families and households living in and around these conservation areas and who are accustomed to living by nature. Aardwolf Africa Adventure safari strongly supports responsible tourism in Kenya.
