Running a Sustainable Office

We strive to run our office on the most ‘environmentally friendly’ basis possible by minimising paper usage.
  • Most of our communications with clients and suppliers are managed electronically.
  • The paper we do use; our Ellie Poo Letterhead paper, is manufactured from 25% elephant dung and 75% post consumer waste.

Charitable Donations

We donate at least 5% of our pre-tax profits to the Bushbaby Charity. The prime beneficiary is currently the Cape Town projects of Nazareth House. For more information on their work, visit their website: http://www.nazhouse.org.za
  • Other projects include:
  • the ‘Education for All’ project in Morocco, helping young girls living in the Atlas to continue their education.
  • a ‘greening’ project for a local township, implemented by Grootbos Nature Reserve in Western Cape

Carbon Off-setting

We support Beyond Carbon, an industry wide programme to stimulate collective action by all tour operators and travel agents selling holidays which include air travel. It consists of a carbon reduction programme and a carbon offset service.
  • Revenue raised funds projects where there is a real additional and measurable carbon saving and wider social benefits which favour:
  • the environment;
  • wildlife;
  • pro poor policies and community improvements.
