Responsible Travel And Positive Impact Safaris

Improving life for people, places & planet

Travelling responsibly or responsible travel is about choosing to respect and benefit the local people, their cultures, economies and the environment. It is up to all of us to be conscientious globetrotting individuals. When we travel we take our holiday in somebody else’s home. Our safaris, trips and holidays can impact their environments, cultures, economies and ways of life.

Treating local people and places with respect is the right thing to do, and opens up possibilities for more authentic travel. At Tulambule, we are passionate about Responsible Tourism and actively practice it by working with social enterprises whose goals are to helping people who don’t have the same opportunities as us.
