SUSTAINABILITY & CONSERVATION - AFRICANMECCA SAFARIS

Read More On Our Sustainability & Conservation Motto? Scroll Down

AfricanMecca Safaris is progressively in support of sustainable African tourism development. Socially responsible tourism really does make a difference. Most of the fascinating, beautiful, and unique African travel destinations are situated in vulnerable, remote areas which are seriously threatened by irresponsible tourism, promoted in the interests of corporate profits and damaging the wildlife, the wilderness and the indigenous people. One can hardly expect a marginalized, starving community to embrace conservation measures that do not offer them any benefit, but threaten their homes, their way of life, their self-respect and their very survival. The fused model for supportable holiday experiences in Africa as practiced by AfricanMecca Safaris, encourages its discerning and like-minded tourists to experience the authentic otherness of their destinations by embracing the local culture whilst promoting the economic wellbeing of the people and the conservation of resident wildlife and habitats. Sustainable tourism makes as little negative impact as possible on the environment with a positive benefit to local communities by improving their wholesome infrastructure. There is improved training and employment with opportunities for upward mobility within the community due to their own efforts in protecting, conserving and promoting the unique attributes of the areas, skills and services available to them. It is necessary to ensure the downward sharing of benefits accrued from outback vacationing trips to ensure community empowerment as decision makers and enthusiastic supporters of the measures necessary to increase their potential as a tourist destination without damaging or exploitation.

The threefold objective of sustainable eco-tourism is to combine positive experiences for travelers with positive benefits to the people and destinations they visit on tour in Africa. Ethical tourist companies make this possible through their commitment to improve and upkeep more responsible forms of hospitality in terms of local employment prospects, healthier conservation, personal involvement, accountability and responsibility. They achieve this through intimate knowledge of the politics, economy and culture of each destination as well as their respect for traditional values. It also means that African tourist facilities are operated with the consent and support of local communities who are best placed to protect the resources they own. A vital factor is control of the impact of ever greater tourist numbers that can damage vulnerable wilderness, mountain and coastal areas. Small local hostelries encouraging modest backpackers and less opulent tourists are seen as a growing source of sustainable revenue. Green policies are in place including recycling waste, using renewable energy sources, conserving water and generally ensuring minimal negative social and environmental impact so that travelers on tour leave behind only good impressions and take away only beautiful memories and photographs. Enlightened social policies include provision for disabled access, opportunities for local youth training, provision of improved infrastructure, health, education and business initiatives including crafts, husbandry and economic benefits for local communities. With these objectives in mind, AfricanMecca Safaris supports unique non-profit ventures, including Rhino Ark & Charge, The East African Wildlife Society and their own self-funded education and medical assistance initiatives as well as supporting international charities such as Teach Rwanda, Smile Train, Red Cross and the African Medical and Research Foundation (AMREF). AfricanMecca Safaris sees a successful business as one that does not merely line the pockets of its shareholders, but makes a positive contribution to the future welfare of its partners, its clients, its employees and the world in general by promoting economic development, social justice and environmental integrity.
