We hope this newsletter finds you all well and enjoying 2016 - I do apologise for our silence last month but it was a little busy to say the least.
Dad has spent the majority of the year on safari, with a number of you, and has reported epic sightings in and around both Osunyai Lamarkau (Tarangire) and Dulana (Serengeti) Camps. Tanzania has been getting some great Equatorial showers - the grass is green and the game is thriving.
I was away in Costa Rica where I completed my yoga teacher training before traveling the States to spread the Wildlife Explorer word. I'm sorry I didn't manage to visit all of you, thank you for the invitations - next time!
We would like to take this Valentine's day opportunity to let you all know how much we appreciate the Earth, the natural world that we are privileged to spend so much of our time exploring.
Here are a few of the ways we look after the environment:
- Wildlife Explorer offsets all vehicle emissions in collaboration with Carbon Tanzania.
- All of our camps are seasonal, meaning every few months we completely remove ourselves allowing the ecosystem to regenerate.
- All of the personal care products you find in your tents are by Africology - 100% natural and eco-friendly, fragranced only with pure essential oils.
- We heat your shower water with a fancy new closed heating system (designed in Sweden) using the old oil from the vehicles.
- Our eco-toilets use eco-friendly, biodegradable chemicals and minimal water (another Swedish design!).
If you would like to get involved with conservation in Tanzania there are a number of fantastic organisations who could always use the support.
PAMS Foundation Tanzania - who's vision is for Tanzania to be a country where the value of it's natural resources and it's benefits are understood and upheld by all.
WildAid Tanzania - who, just last year, launched a brand new public awareness campaign to inform the general public about severe poaching crisis we are facing in East Africa.
As always, thank you all for your continued support. We couldn't do it without you.
The Wildlife Explorer Team
