It is sometimes not easy to get through the thick bush of safari offers and available lodges. But there is a way to filter out the good ones and to make a difference with your photographic safari choice.
There are a number of bush lodges and camps that can call themselves eco lodges. They use solar power, re-use water, keep the use of plastic low and more ecological conscious actions to make the impact on nature as small as possible.
There are also a number of lodges and camps that work closely with the local communities, provide medical care and education for the community and their staff.
A third criterion is the conservation policy of a lodge or camp. How do they manage the land and how do they protect the wildlife.
The best lodges and camps do all three and if you would like to make a difference while having a great time with your wildlife photography and game drives, you should choose one of them. Ask for them when you are planning your safari and you will know, that you did a good thing.
Happy difference making while having photography fun!
