THE IMPORTANCE OF ECO-TOURISM

We at Safari Trails believe that any visit to Africa can represent the trip of a lifetime, returning home with incredible photographs and wonderful memories. We however believe that ‘eco-tourism’ travellers should gain even more. We want our passengers to return home with an understanding of why many African species are vanishing, and what must be done to alter this pattern. Travellers should also return home with a greater appreciation for African cultures.

We are one of the first tour companies to start using bio diesel in our vehicles ie. Diesel that is processed from cotton seeds and the used/crushed cotton seeds used for animal feed.

BIO DIESEL VEHICLES

All our vehicles operating within Nairobi use pure bio diesel, while all safari vehicles use a blend, as biodiesel is not available in the bush. Our 4×4 vehicles have been modified and have an extra fuel tank fitted in them so they have a fuel capacity of180 litres and therefore require very little regular diesel top up while on safari.

BUSH FRIENDLY COLOURS

All our vehicles have been branded in eco friendly colors.

RECYCLE SUPPLIES

We support various charity institutions, who use our old engines, batteries, and other mechanical parts in their automobile Engineering training workshop, where they teach students (former street children) on how to become auto technicians and mechanics.

ENAIDURA CAMP

The Camp for Safari Purists in the Masai Mara

Designed for safari purists, Enaidura is an intimate camp under canvas with an extraordinary emphasis on guiding and wildlife viewing. Enaidura is leading the way with local empowerment. We’re one of the few camps owned and operated by local guides with an all-Maasai staff. A stay with us is culturally rewarding—you’ll feel a welcomed part of the Maasailand wilderness.

COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT

We support local Maasai villages and have conducted various medial camps in the villages. We have recently launched different itineraries focusing on tourists getting involved in volunteer jobs with the local community, e.g building schools, boreholes, etc. Our drivers have been trained to respect the environment and not to drive off road where there are no marked tracks in the National Parks and Game Reserves. They have also been trained to do game drives with minimum interference to the natural way of life of the animals in the wild. We also try and educate them on effects of litter and noise pollution, including misuse of cell phones and radios while on safari.

All our clients have the opportunity to visit local villages so as to buy their locally made curios and support the community.
