Responsible Travelling

Travel and tourism in Africa has the opportunity to change lives. By investing time, interest and curiosity in both its cultural and geographical landscapes, one also invests in its survival. Making conscious travel choices which impact communities and wildlife on the ground should be a priority when planning your African adventure, taking our responsibilities towards the environment, and each other, to heart.

As we rediscover the role we play in nature – experientially as well as an industry – the ideals of ecotourism are on the forefront of our minds. Connecting with the environment in meaningful ways that result in long term conservation benefits are the type of experiences safari tourism has the advantage of creating.

Based on the foundations of impactful travel, JENMAN African Safaris ensures life-altering experiences for guests that embrace and encourage interactive yet non-invasive safari encounters. From the holistic and conservation based itineraries offered, we honour and operate within the boundaries of responsible tourism, and beyond. This includes educating guests and creating awareness about the conservation initiatives in each country we visit.

As the world begins to travel once again, in anticipation of wildlife abundance and adventure, we seek to reconnect with the elements. It is during these journeys we hope to get lost in our experiences, while simultaneously finding ourselves. Our safari specialists have selected 5 of their favourite conscious and intentional activities across the continent:

Floating above the earth over elephant corridors and Chobe National Park in Botswana, Camp Kuzuma, Chobe’s hot air balloon allows you to rise above the issues of conservation, understanding its importance from a different perspective.

Botswana prides itself in exclusive and remote African journeys, sharing the love and diversity of its treasures. It is extremely eco-conscious and strives to offer and implement choices which make an impact – for the traveller, the local community and the wildlife. A mokoro ride upon the Khwai River while staying at Mogotlho, Khwai River will have you floating upon the river, in your element, surrounded by nature.
