Travel changes lives and raises consciousness … this is for certain. Things you’ll commonly hear from people recently back from international travel will not only describe how good a time they had, but also how fulfilling and educational their time was. Those who travel with a sustainable tourism operator will not only have the time of their life, but also know they gave back to the local communities they visited AND learned a ton about the world around them as they did!
No two ways about it - those of us who love to travel are almost always equally passionate about sustainability! A huge part of making our travel more sustainable includes not just visiting with beautiful cultures, touring majestic natural areas, and seeing exotic wildlife, but also doing our part to leave a smaller travel footprint.
There’s no denying it: travel can be one of the most transformational things we can experience in life, and all the more so when we know we’re making a difference! Travel and giving back to nature can go hand in hand, especially when in the hands of both trusted operators and professional conservationists.
We’d planned for it, dreamt about it, gotten psyched about it … maybe for years.
We saw the landscapes and animals, and ticked experiences off our bucket list …
We met the locals, ate the food, toured the temples …
When it comes to tracking down some of the most unique and meaningful safaris Africa has to offer, Zimbabwe is a standout. Sustainable tourism takes on many forms, but not every destination offers the kind of education, activities and adventure that Global Basecamps and our partners in Zimbabwe do! Through learning, service and unique ways of experiencing this marvelous country, our Zimbabwe safaris are an opportunity to make a difference while having an experience you’ll cherish for the rest of your life. We’re excited to invite you on our Conservation & Cultural Group Safari this upcoming late October - early November 2019, along with another departure in 2020!
