Preserve the Beauty of Tanzania
Tourism can be done responsibly; stimulating the economy and improving the lifestyles of the Tanzanians, while conserving the natural resources.
It will take all of our efforts to ensure that the very thing that attracts tourists – the raw beauty of Kilimanjaro and the glorious wildlife – can be enjoyed for many years to come.
We believe strongly in helping to conserve and protect our natural resources, both here in the United States and throughout the world. As a traveler, there are several ways that you can help.
Practice Low Impact Traveling and Camping
Whether you are camping on safari or climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro, it is essential that you leave the area how you found it. Thousands of people each year visit these parks, putting pressure on the fragile ecosystem. Do your part by picking up after yourself and disposing of rubbish in the correct manner.
Stay On the Trail or Path
This may sound like a simple thing to do, but you’d be amazed at how many people go off trail. This not only hurts the environment, but makes it easier to get lost. On the mountain, it is easy to get disoriented when the heavy clouds roll in. On safari, it’s important to stay on the established roads. It may sound adventurous to go off-road, but by doing so, you could be harming the animals near you.
You can also help by donating to or volunteering with an organization dedicated to protecting the environment and the species that live in them, such as the National Audubon Society, World Wildlife Foundation, and the Earthwatch Institute.
