Private Explorers is a 100% locally owned African safari company that is dedicated to giving back to communities surrounding tourist attractions in Africa. We believe that responsible tourism is key to preserving Africa’s natural and cultural heritage and creating a better future for local communities through sustainable initiatives.
Sustainability and Community Initiatives
Our commitment to giving back and promoting sustainability is deeply ingrained in our ethos. We firmly believe that supporting local communities and protecting the environment go hand in hand. Here’s what we are doing to make a positive impact:
We dedicate 20% of our income to supporting the most vulnerable people, especially children, in the communities where we operate. We work closely with local organizations, like the Tuleeni Children’s Home in Tanzania, to provide essential resources like schools, food, and water wells. By empowering these communities, we aim to create sustainable livelihoods and improve the well-being of the people who call Africa home.
At Private Explorers, we are committed to minimizing the ecological footprint of our safaris. We collaborate with lodges and partners that share our values of environmental stewardship. We actively support conservation efforts that protect wildlife, safeguard natural habitats, and reduce the impact of tourism on delicate ecosystems.
Africa’s cultural heritage is rich and diverse. We strive to promote respect for local traditions, languages, and customs, ensuring that tourism benefits the communities and helps preserve their unique identities.
Empowering Local Businesses
In addition to collaborating with community projects, we actively seek out partnerships with local businesses, artisans, and entrepreneurs. By supporting these enterprises, we contribute to economic growth and self-sufficiency within the communities we visit.
Your Role in Sustainability
You can contribute to our sustainability efforts and make a positive impact on the lives of vulnerable children by supporting the Tuleeni Home. The home believes in the power of education to break the cycle of poverty. By donating a small amount each month or making a one-time contribution, you directly contribute to the children’s education, healthcare, and overall well-being.
Why do they need your help?
In Tanzania, there are approximately 4 million children under 14 who are not properly cared for. Many of these children are orphans who have lost their parents or were left helpless due to poverty. They often end up living on the streets, trying to make a living by begging, stealing, or engaging in other dangerous activities.
What do they need?
Tuleeni Home believes in education as a way out of poverty. However, they face a lack of funds to cater to the various needs of the children, especially food, education, and healthcare. They rely heavily on international donors and well-wishers to keep the home running.
You can contribute to this worthy cause by making a small donation or contribution as per your will. Even a gift of $5, $10, or $20 a month can make a huge difference in the lives of these children. Your contribution will provide critical assistance when and where it’s most needed.
How to contribute?
You can visit the Tuleeni Home website or donate by credit/debit card donations, GoFundMe, or monthly donation through PayPal. Every contribution, no matter how small, makes a significant difference in the lives of these children and helps create a better future for them.
