Vacations In Africa With Minimal Environmental Impact

Unspoiled landscapes with an array of foliage, fauna and secluded beach are ideal places to vacation; however, without planned preservation, they disappear quickly. Motels appear then restaurants, gift shops and before long, a strip mall occupies paradise. Eco-conscious travel is not about keeping people away from some of the world’s wildest and most scenic places; it is about responsible travel and patronizing tour operators that contribute to preserving areas for future generations.


Africa is a popular destination for adventurous people interested in hiking, camping, spotting wildlife and photography. There is no better way to explore Africa than to sleep in a tent in the wilderness and walk on the trails, because non-motorized activities do not cause any carbon emissions. Africa’s incomparable array of wildlife and plant life typically inspires individuals to support conservation programs once they are back home.


For conservation centered, adventurous vacation in exotic locations, Wild Ark is an ideal tour operator. Passionate conservationists who offer unique options for staying in Botswana, South Africa and Alaska operate the company. African adventures with Wild Ark have a low environmental impact and they are conducted in a sustainable manner. Courses, such as wildlife photography and the field guide course, teach individuals about ecology and conservation principles, which can be applied to any location.


Imagine spending two weeks in the African bush, sleeping in a tent, identifying birds and following animal tracks with an experienced guide. Wild Ark provides the tents, bedding and meals. The camp has no fences, allowing the local wildlife to wander in if they choose. For visitors who prefer luxurious accommodations, Wild Ark arranges visits to the lodges at Londolozi, in the heart of South Africa’s Sabi Sand Game Reserve.
