Since 2009 Imagine Africa Safaris supports the CEYA Foundation Group and became a Certified Official Sponsor of this NGO in January 2010.
Imagine Africa Safaris offers special Trips and Outings in close Co-Operation with the CEYA Foundation. The goal is not only to give you a chance to enjoy Kenya in a unique “off the tracks” way, to buy real tribal art and craftmenship and/or to enjoy a genuine Kenyan meal, but also to give the less fortunate a possibilty to earn their own living in dignity by the means of responsible tourism.
There are at least four(4) more good reasons why you should come with us
- We have formed close working partnerships with the best in-country outfitters and the bestlodges and camps-outfits that have decades of experience with guests on safari. In addition, we are committed to employing local people to the maximum extent possible. We pay our people well and, just as important, we provide them with training and involve them in our company. They are trusted partners in providing our guests with the best safari experience available in Kenya.
- Ethical tourism is one of the cornerstones of our company. Imagine Africa Safaris is committed to travel that provides exciting opportunities for our guests while enriching lives and protecting habitats in East Africa. We support micro-economic development projects with a number of tribal groups in Kenya. These programs allow our guests exclusive entry onto tribal lands while giving local people local control over the way tourism is introduced and the way dollars earned are used. Our programs open up rare opportunities for in-depth exchanges between western culture and traditional African cultures.
- We offer responsible tourism by giving back to the community through the contribution of 5 percent of our income from every tour we sell.
- Education is one of the cornerstones of Imagine Africa Safaris. On our safaris , you learn by going. It is a highly entertaining process of deepening discovery that we call Natural Learning and it’s an integral part of every one of our safaris . As our guides teach you to spot and identify game and track animals, you begin to see with new eyes. You become more curious and observant about animal behaviors, and you begin to understand how all the pieces of the ecosystem fit together. In addition, we can also arrange your safari to give you special access to amazing people who know Africa’s depths: researchers, directors of non-governmental organizations (NGOs) tribal councils, and camp owners. At Imagine Africa Safaris we want you to come away with a deeper understanding of an astonishing landscape.
