Photo safari – Eco-friendly travel in Africa
Visiting Africa to embark on a safari is a dream trip for many around the world. The breathtaking scenery and wild nature makes this a hot destination for adventure seekers while continuing to make Africa a top travel destination. Just as important as making a dream trip to South Africa happen, is traveling in a way that conserves the environment through sustainable eco-friendly responsible green travel.
Our travel suggestion for the week is a photographic safari tour which brings you in contact with not only the local animals, but the local population as well. The best way to start planning for such a tour is to create a list of tours at game reserves around the area you would like to visit, such as South Africa, Botswana, or any other safari destination. All while keeping in mind that the smaller the group, the better – looking always for a carbon-neutral travel company if possible.
Ask to arrange a visit with a local school or a tour with a seasoned local, while the safari itself might be the reason you came, the experiences
you have with locals might just be the highlight of your trip to Africa.
Also important to keep in mind is
whether the game reserve or tour you choose has special conservation initiatives in place for what happens after you leave. The importance should be placed in positive travel that gains not only an unforgettable journey that you will remember forever through photography, but also knowing that when you leave, the local population has had a positive impact as well.
