Yes! It is widely possible to support conservation during your Tanzania Safari.

The wildlife and wilderness in Tanzania face threats that are many and complex! Thus, to preserve this for future generations, we need to be aware and also support it effectively.

So, every single person who visits Tanzania can make a difference by supporting conservation.

How Do Tourists Able To Support Conservation In Tanzania?

“Conservation” is a host of activities relating to habitats and wildlife. Ultimately by the sustainable use of nature, we can support conservation which will be beneficial for both present and future generations. Let’s see how-

#1. Paying Your Park Fees

In Tanzania, national parks and game reserves are tasked with providing an expansive natural habitat for various wildlife. And collecting park fees is among their top ways to increase funding.

However, by paying park fees, you automatically provide an incentive to preserve the national parks and their wildlife.

#2. Beat Plastic Pollution: If You Can’t Reuse It, Refuse It!

As we all know, plastic is not biodegradable and is one of the world’s leading pollutants. The harmful chemicals released from plastic products can pose a serious risk to humans and the environment as well.

That’s why to avoid the use of plastic bottles, we provide big refillable water containers to our guests.

#3. Choose the Designed Route way and Don’t Go Off-The-Beaten

The rules of national parks, game reserves, and conservation areas aim to protect tourists, wildlife along with the environment.

Do not roam unguided and on uneven paths. It may cause losses to both you and wildlife. Many animals often feel challenged or threatened if you wander into their habitat.

So, always stick to the designated routes followed by your local guide.
