We're Green, are you?
We use reduce, recycle and reuse as much as we can in running our business. We also use green products and services wherever we can, and pledge to monitor, reduce and offset the environmental impacts of our work. We can help you achieve the same by offering green services to you, and by helping you green your business directly through our ecoaudit service.

Green Hosting
All our third party domain registration and webhosting services are offered through green service providers who pledge to support renewalable energy sources.

Zambezi Eco-Tours

Ethical African Safaris with Zambezi Eco-Tours

Zambezi Eco-Tours believes the tourism industry owes a debt to the environment - the landscapes, wildlife and communities which support it - and champion ecotourism principals as a method of achieving grass-roots benefits. We're a new online initiative aiming to encourage everyone to adopt ethical ecotourism principles, from the operator delivering the tourism service, to you, the tourist.

Zambezi Eco-Tours is brought to you in partnership with Backpackers Bazaar, an established local independent travel agent based in Victoria Falls, and other selected tourism agents and providers across our area of operation.

Minimising environmental impacts

Zambezi Eco-Tours aims to minimise the environmental impact of its operations and services (for example our webservers are supported by renewable solar power), and encourages tourism accommodation and activity providers to do the same. We believe everyone has a responsibility to minimise the environmental impacts of their operations and services.

We aim to work with tourism operators to increase environmental awareness and measure and monitor the 'environmental footprint' of tourism services, with the aim of minimising these impacts where-ever possible. Book through us and help increase our voice to lobby tourism operators to take their environmental responsibilities seriously.

Supporting local conservation and community projects

As part of our commitment to balance the environmental impacts of our tourism operations in Victoria Falls, we donate five percent of the value of your booking to specially selected local ethical and environmental good causes. For every $100 spent with us, we donate $5 to one of our specially selected local projects. You still pay the same base rate that you would if you booked direct with the operator, but with positive benefits to local community and conservation projects to offset the negative environmental impacts of your accommodation and activities. Check out our Victoria Falls 'good causes.'
