Kagera Safaris is more than just a birding tour company. We care about the wildlife we travel to see, the local communities we visit, and the guests we educate. That’s why we’re delighted to announce that we’ve made it into the Ethical Bird Tours 2018 list!
The unique list has been generated by a global community of travellers, bloggers, conservationists, tours guides, birders and ecotourism operators. Curated by Terra Incognita – a social enterprise seeking to promote the best examples of ethical ecotourism worldwide – we’re part of a group of 45 incredible birding tours from across the globe.
“Operators like Kagera Safaris on the Ethical Bird Tours 2018 list are working hard to make a real positive impact on the planet through tourism”, said Dr Nick Askew – from Terra Incognita.
“They are contributing through everything from partnerships with local conservation and community groups, reforestation projects, wildlife reintroductions and research efforts, to capacity building and environmental education for local communities. Some have donated hundreds of thousands of pounds directly to conservation charities”.
The list includes a transparent explanation of how all tours contribute to conservation, local communities and education. There are also independent reviews by people who have been on the tours about their experiences.
“We really wanted to find incredible tour providers like Kagera Safaris who are doing great work and deserve more promotion”, said Kristi Foster, from of Terra Incognita. “Our aim is to create a community of passionate people who help make a difference through ecotourism, and to share life-changing experiences rather than tourism products.”
The list was launched during the British Birdfair 2018 – an annual event for birdwatchers that supports BirdLife International.
Bird species highlighted range from the Guinean cock-of-the-rock and Mongolian ground jay, to the Endangered Abbott’s booby in Australia and the Endangered Oriental stork in Japan.
