Travel has an impact on the environment. Carbon dioxide emissions from the burning of fossil fuels are causing the Earth's climate to change and warm, which will have catastrophic results if we do not act to reduce them. But without travel, we'd miss out on opportunities to see new places, meet new peopleā€”to think and live globally. In Africa, wildlife reserves would not have the income to continue protecting wildlife, the millions of people employed in the tourism industry would be unemployed and the critical sharing of cultures would not take place. We believe travel is imperative to fostering a peaceful world.

At Africa Adventure Consultants, we strive to minimize our overall footprint on this earth. We are especially aware of the environmental challenges that the delicate ecosystems of Africa are facing, and now more than ever are taking an active role in protecting these areas for future generations.

Africa Adventure Consultants helps save the planet by continually reducing and minimizing carbon emissions, reducing waste and re-using wherever possible. We support legislation that requires mandatory greenhouse gas reductions and efforts by others to reduce CO2.

Our Denver office has taken the following steps to reduce our carbon footprint.

  • Switched to recycled paper for our brochures, letterhead, folders and business cards.
  • Instituted a recycling program for waste paper.
  • Reduced drive times whenever possible.
  • Chose responsible African partner companies with good environmental practices and policies.
  • Continue to work with African partner companies to reduce CO2 emissions by implementing solar and wind power schemes, reduce wood burning, protect land to create carbon sinks, and more.

We also encourage guests to participate in our charities program which helps fund sustainable development and conservation in the regions where we travel. For more information on our unique program, call Africa Adventure Consultants at 866-778-1089.
