Respect the wildlife

Safari game drives are a thrilling experience but it’s important to always follow the rules of the reserves, never ask your guide to leave the trails or chase wildlife, and never use flash photography around animals.

Water is extremely scarce in many African countries, so help save water by reusing towels and sheets, taking shorter showers, turning off taps tightly, and reporting any leaks.

Check your souvenirs

It is both unethical and illegal to buy products made from the tusks, horns, furs and skin of endangered animals, so go for more sustainable souvenirs like local arts and crafts made by passionate artisans.
