Eco Tourism
Ideally, ecotourism should satisfy several criteria, such as:
  • minimize impact

  • build environmental and cultural awareness and respect

  • provide positive experiences for both visitors and hosts

  • provide financial benefits and empowerment for local people

  • raise sensitivity to host countries' political, environmental, and social climate tourism to unspoiled natural resources, with minimal impact on the environment being a primary concern

  • minimization of tourism's own environmental impact

  • affordability and lack of waste in the form of luxury

  • local culture, flora and fauna being the main attractions
As a company, Pilanesberg Safaris and Tours strive to adhere to these principles. Guides are all ecologically friendly, being paper free wherever possible, absolutely not discarding litter around a natural environment or anywhere for that matter. We also stop at local craft markets as opposed to the mass craft markets that can also be found. Furthermore we use the smaller ungraded lodges where possible (while still offering excellent service) as opposed to the larger, more opulent 5 star luxury lodges, but they can also be used, if requested.
