Ways to make a positive impact on a safari in Tanzania. Generally Tanzania is a place known for its wildlife, beauty, diversity, colour, and amazing people, since years, been a really top destination amongst travellers from every corner of the world. As you explore Tanzania, you will be amazed to experience such a rich history, the variety of many tribes and peoples living with each other, as well as stunning landscape.
Visiting the historical and cultural sites of Dar es Salaam, learning a bit more about the founder of the country – Julius Nyerere, traverse the landscape of Tanzania safari tour, Zanzibar especially with its enthralling beauty and an utterly fascinating history, visiting the village of Mali, meeting wonderful people there, making a tour to the fair-trade coffee plantations near Mt. Kilimanjaro, and a lot more would be store for you, when you visit Tanzania.
But, it’s not just travelling – it is responsible travelling that one should aim for. Especially, when you go to a place as culturally, historically, and geographically rich as Tanzania, you must support, or at least not trouble with their environment and society, as much as you can.
Responsible Tanzania safari – Say big NO to plastic!
Instead of getting annoy about high pollution, or how badly kept a street is, or the garbage disposal system is total garbage in a place, you should rather try to be a part of the solution. Especially, if you’re not in your home place, always opt for purified water in glass recyclable bottles made from glass. When you’re in one of the Tanzania’s National Parks, or out in the streets, maybe perusing the street shops, use a tote bag that you should have carried in your luggage. This will reduce your plastic usage to a great extent. Not just that, but your carbon footprint will be reduced to a big extent, due to the reason that manufacturing of plastic bags and bottles primarily uses petroleum-based ingredients.
Responsible safari in Tanzania – Support Local Economy as Much as You Can
We all love taking souvenirs for our loved ones; but, we usually take products that are imported and cheap, instead locally made ones as they are fairly and comparatively expensive. To support the real economy of a place, it is always better if you buy the crafts and other things that are made there locally. By doing this you ensure your money contributes to their economy, having a positive and more direct impact.
