The travel service we offer for tourists in Uganda, ideally, is ‘Green Travel, as this is primarily intended to raise funds to support our reforestation and sustainable household energy projects with rural smallholder farmers in Uganda’s heavily deforested countryside—saving the rainforests. If you are traveling in a different country, you can simply offset your footprint with us.

“Green travel is an overarching term used to describe responsible travel practices that focus on economic, socio-cultural, and environmental sustainability. Green travel is about making sure that travelers choose businesses, tour operators, and transportation methods that maintain and preserve the ecological integrity of the environment and contribute to local community development; meeting the needs of the present without compromising the needs of current or future generations”. (Sustainable Travel International).

Please see our travel pricing guide,

REMEMBER:  for every person we take on a standard safari, we will start up and support a new community reforestation center (or a ‘Project Extension Group’ – PEG) that will plant 25,000 trees per season and act as the local community extension hub for our activities on sustainable household energy and organic gardening. You can also choose to go with us on a visit to the local farmers’ group that will host the new community site. Or, if you make no booking yet, you can simply choose to visit some of our pre-existing ecoproject sites!
