Responsible Tourism – The DDS ‘Cares Movement’

The Covid-19 crisis has devastated the tourism industry and local economy it supports in Botswana. Desert and Delta Safaris has launched a unique safari voucher system which pays $10 of every $100 spent to local farmers and communities living in wildlife areas.

While borders remain closed, futures travellers are able to make an immediate positive impact in buying ‘safari vouchers’ for discounted packages at very flexible terms. Travellers have until 2022 to use the voucher and can even transfer the voucher to friends or family as a gift. Desert and Delta will donate 10% of this revenue towards supporting conservation initiatives and local communities living around the National Parks and Game Reserves. A wide range of packages are available, see below.

Desert and Delta Safaris will be working with Botswana-based NGO Elephants Without Borders (EWB) in supporting the work they are conducting with the farmers and local communities in the Chobe Enclave of northern-Botswana.

Surrounded on all sides by National Parks and Reserves, the Chobe Enclave is a unique area which carries Africa’s greatest numbers of elephant and the huge concentration of these animals and other wildlife is the brings many visitors to the area. For the local population, co-existing with this wildlife can be challenges.  Elephants Without Borders has worked on both the immediate needs and long term solutions on this issue and had significant success in facilitating positive coexistence between wildlife and people.

Desert and Delta Safaris are one of Botswana’s oldest and largest safari operators with eight camps across northern Botswana including: Chobe Game Lodge,  Savute Safari Lodge, Chobe Savanna Lodge, Camp Moremi, Camp Xakanaxa, Camp Okavango, Xugana Island Lodge and Leroo La Tau.
