ALL OUR SAFARIS ARE ECO-SENSITIVE TO THE LOCAL ENVIRONMENT, WILDLIFE AND PEOPLE WITH A PERCENTAGE OF PROFITS BEING RETURNED TO LOCAL CONSERVATION EDUCATION AND COMMUNITY PROJECTS.
Nyanja Safaris has a commitment to supporting conservation in Zambia to encourage the promotion of sustainable utilization of the native Flora and Fauna to benefit the local people and thus ensuring the future of the African wilderness for the enjoyment of all those who have an interest in Africa and its environment. To this end our profits are returned to local conservation, anti-poaching and educational projects. Our clients are also invited to make personal donations to local projects in the areas / lodges that they visit.
Nyanja Safaris Philosophy:
We only use Operators who manage or support a local Conservation or Community program such as a local village school, tree planting program or anti-poaching efforts.
Nyanja Safaris has a commitment to pledging its support in Zambia to encourage the promotion of sustainable utilization of the native Flora and Fauna to benefit the local people and thus ensuring the future of the African wilderness for the enjoyment of all those who have an interest in Africa and its environment. Nyanja Safaris also feels strongly about supporting many other Educational & Local Community which most Lodges run within the local community.
Our Philosophy Is Simple:
To encourage awareness of Conservation and Community projects with our clients and encourage their involvement. We want to ensure that the benefits of tourism are returned to the local conservation & community projects that our clients have the privilege to visit. ALL the safari operators that we use have their own charitable programs such as building & supporting village schools, anti poaching assistance, community health care, village water supply, conservation education projects, tree planting programs etc. which are often reliant on donations and are imperative to the success of the local wildlife and community welfare.
Our intention is to promote Africa in a positive and informative manner; to encourage client involvement and local self reliance by encouraging the promotion of local employment, improving education availability, development of traditional skills & crafts and thus ensuring a sustainable future for the local people all of which is dependant on the preservation of the local wildlife and environment.
