ABOUT US | World Safaris

OUR MISSION

We, at World Safaris, promote conservation by providing affordable and responsible Wildlife Conservation Travel for conservation-oriented organizations and travelers, including accredited zoos and aquariums, museums, nature centers, colleges, universities and non-governmental organizations (NGOs).

We believe the organizations and the travelers we serve are important members of their communities supporting education, science and conservation. Many of these organizations provide their respective communities with direct “hands-on” experiences with wildlife, nature and other cultures, which can transform perceptions and lead to a more informed, caring and engaged community. Others promote community involvement in conservation through a wide range of educational opportunities, such as interactive on-line programs, classes, lectures and institutional tours.

Our Commitment To Responsible Travel:

The World Safaris family is committed to the three principle action elements of Responsible Travel:

Safeguard the environment

Support sustainable development

Honor the local culture

 

Our Actions:

Direct support of conservation and communities

Through the World Safaris Impact On Wildlife program, we promote wildlife and habitat conservation worldwide by donating a minimum of 10 percent of our profits to support carefully selected conservation and community development projects in the regions within which we travel. The World Safaris Council of Conservation and Science Advisors serves to guide the selection of projects supported through Impact On Wildlife.

Exclusive partnerships with local service providers

Recognizing that wildlife, nature and cultures are often imperiled by the actions of humans, we seek to mitigate that impact by providing local economic incentives for conservation through Wildlife Conservation Travel. It is our policy to work exclusively with service providers that are locally owned and operated, thereby insuring that tourism revenue benefits the economies of the communities within our destinations.

Exclusive use of digital media for marketing and fulfillment

A recent conversation with a senior staff member of a conservation-focused institution revealed that they had just received 20,000 brochures to mail as promotion for an upcoming wildlife tour.  We were a bit surprised that anyone is still using printed materials in today’s digital world. In keeping with the spirit of responsible travel, World Safaris does not print brochures, itineraries or other marketing materials.
