We love giving back to the local communities.
From day one of setting up this project Eco Adventure Safaris Limited our aim we believed in giving something back to the local communities in destinations we take our clients, this is so important because local communities are the heart of conservation of the attractions that make up our business model, we do support the local communities through the charities and local community projects we support using part of our profits and sometimes with support from our clients.

Education is at the heart of our Community Support and this is the most important aspect of most of the local communities in Africa. We are proud to be associated with various local Charity projects which provides sustainable educational support for students in the destinations we operate in.
At each of our destinations, we responsibly engage with the local communities with the purpose of improving their well-being and uplifting them to benefit from tourism in that area. Children in Africa have an option to receive free primary education. But schools in this area are overcrowded and underequipped and children often have to walk many miles each day to access the education, across potentially dangerous bush land, in order to attend school. Despite these challenges they achieve great things and standards of achievement are high. We encourage our clients to always pack for a purpose for those who are able to bring items like school items, sanitary health equipment for girls, proper used clothes, play games among others which can be donated to schools in these communities.
At Eco Adventure Safaris Limited, we believe that conservation of our environment and Wildlife Heritage is Key for Tourism and quality of life and for future generations. This has led us to actively participate in a wide range of conservation activities local, regional and international. As a result, We combine gorilla trekking safaris with eco-friendly and unforgettable high-end adventure and wildlife safaris that help preserve biodiversity, conserve wildlife and uplift local communities.
