Protecting the environment and residentWe make it a priority to conduct all of our activities with minimal environmental impact. FLOW Africa Safaris is taking steps to reduce our net emissions and get involved with carbon offsetting projects that help fund clean energy projects around the world.
Also of major concern is the impact of human presence on the resident wildlife. We believe that when done properly, tourist activities can exert positive effects on an ecosystem and its inhabitants. Tourism revenue encourages governments to prioritize environmental preservation programs, establishment and maintenance of parks and reserves. Whenever possible, FLOW Africa Safaris supports small eco-lodges run on privately-owned land that have become front runners in the conservation movement, serving as important wildlife refuges.
We make every effort to use parks and resources responsibly by practicing 'Leave No Trace' ethics and regularly lend financial support and enthusiastic participation in notable conservation initiatives. For years, FLOW Africa Safaris has served as a dedicated member of the East African Wild Life Society which has for the last half century been initiating and supporting initiatives to protect East African wildlife. We also strongly support Rhino Ark Foundation - an exceptional environmental project with the goal of protecting the Aberdare National Park and the population of black rhinoceros threatened with extinction and AAR Backmann Trust, founded by our great friend Maryjka Beckmann. Its main aim is to improve living conditions and to provide basic health care to the poorest Kenyan families.
