A Company with a Conscience
At Outlook Safaris we believe that environmental tourism should never just be about business. Every decision we make is made with treading as lightly as possible and adding value wherever possible in mind. Every staff member of Outlook got involved in the industry because of their individual passion for our natural heritage and for the people of the remarkable country we call home and that principle comes to life through how we conduct ourselves in everything we do. Because tourism can both be a blessing and a curse to any area, we strive to cause the least amount of negative impact possible on local communities in the areas that we operate in and the smallest possible environmental footprint both locally and globally. We believe small things can make a big difference if enough people do enough and we therefor expect our clients on safari to share our social and environmental principles. We believe that the best time to start to make a difference is yesterday and we do that through small things like using only non-indigenous, invasive trees for firewood and using fossil fuel saving wheels on our vehicles to name but a few. We are continuously searching for new ways to reduce the environmental cost of our safaris and to support causes that assist with conservation and support people in need.
We support the conservation efforts of the Endangered Wildlife Trust by assisting them to transport equipment such as collars and currently have a project on www.givengain.com to help raise funds for Wild Dog Conservation. To donate to the EWT and specifically this cause, please go to our project, Wild Dog Conservation, to make your donation.
We are very aware of the privilege that we and our clients have to see and experience the magnificence of nature and feel that it should be shared with those less fortunate than ourselves. To this end, we conduct several charity safaris for children from orphanages and shelters annually.
Additional to our two permanent charities, the EWT and the TCD trust, our employee of the month has the privilege to nominate our charity of choice for the month. In that way Outlook support a different charity every month as chosen by one of our staff members.
