WHY IS AFRICA ONE OF THE WORLD’S TOP ECO-TOURISM DESTINATIONS?
Enhance your travel experience through eco-tourism and be one of many responsible travellers contributing to the preservation of our planet. When traveling as an eco-tourist, you help the planet as well as the economy of the country you are traveling in. Africa has embraced eco-tourism as part of its efforts to conserve its wildlife, breath-taking scenery and helping the people living in it.
THE PRINCIPLES OF ECO-TOURISM:
Minimize physical, social, behavioural, and psychological impacts.
Build environmental and cultural awareness and respect.
Provide positive experiences for both visitors and local people.
Provide direct financial benefits for environmental conservation.
Generate financial benefits for local people and private industry.
Help raise sensitivity to host countries’ political, environmental, and social climates.
Design, construct and operate low-impact facilities.
