The Safari Collection’s Environmental Footprint

Embracing Sustainability and Giving Back in Luxury Travel

Luxury travel is synonymous with comfort, indulgence, and unforgettable experiences. But as the world becomes increasingly conscious of environmental issues, travellers are seeking out more sustainable and responsible options.

The Safari Collection, which operates a collection of luxury lodges and camps in Kenya’s finest locations, has taken up the challenge and is making significant strides in sustainability, giving back, and reducing its environmental footprint.

In this article, we’ll explore The Safari Collection’s initiatives and how they contribute to a more meaningful travel experience.

The Footprint Programme: Preserving Nature, Empowering Communities

The Safari Collection’s commitment to sustainability is evident through its dedicated foundation, “Our Footprint.” This program aims to protect East Africa’s natural wonders, promote sustainable tourism, and positively impact local communities. By treading delicately on the planet and minimising their environmental impact, The Safari Collection sets an example for other luxury travel companies to follow.

Conservation Efforts: Protecting Vulnerable Wildlife and Habitats

The Safari Collection recognises the importance of protecting wildlife and their habitats, which are the backbone of Kenya’s incredible natural wonders. Through their dedicated foundation, they support various conservation projects aimed at safeguarding vulnerable animal species. From giraffe conservation to rhino protection and supporting African painted dogs, The Safari Collection actively contributes to preserving the diverse wildlife of the region, allowing guests to witness these magnificent creatures in their natural habitats while contributing to their survival.

Community Outreach: Empowering and Uplifting Local Communities

In addition to wildlife conservation, The Safari Collection champions a range of community outreach initiatives, empowering and supporting local communities through healthcare, clean water provision, female empowerment, education, and much more. By investing in these programmes, The Safari Collection enriches the lives of the people they work alongside and brings positive change to their communities.

Sustainability Practices: Reducing, Reusing, and Recycling

Reducing waste, reusing resources, and recycling are integral parts of The Safari Collection’s commitment to sustainability. They have implemented practices such as water conservation, waste management, and reforestation efforts to minimize their environmental impact. By taking responsible measures to reduce their carbon footprint and food miles, The Safari Collection ensures that their luxury travel experiences leave a positive mark on the environment, and inspire other luxury travel providers to follow suit.
