Sustainability & Conservation

Southern Cross Safaris are continually working to make our company sustainable in every aspect, and we ensure that we use partners and suppliers with a good sustainability ethos. In addition, we aim to create sustainability awareness among employees, clients and partners.

We are committed to protecting the environment in which we operate, and our sustainability policy helps us minimize all adverse effects.

Southern Cross Safaris likes to provide support whenever possible to conservation projects and charities. This enables us to run our business knowing that we are sustaining the natural and social environments around us along the way.

In 2019, we partnered with Wildlife Works and supported their Kasigau Corridor REDD+ project, enabling us to offset our carbon footprint. It is a fantastic project which is on our doorstep.

In brief, the Kasigau Corridor (a wildlife corridor between Tsavo East & West National Parks) some 20 years ago was a barren piece of land where animals were rapidly decreasing in numbers. Since Wildlife Works started the RED++ project, the following has happened;

  • Over 55,000 indigenous trees have been planted in the last 4 years.
  • 10,0000 kgs of eco-friendly charcoal have been produced without cutting down a single tree.
  • 15 school projects were completed in the previous 3 years.
  • Hundreds of people from the local community have been employed to run the project (30% of the workforce is female).
  • 10 water projects have been completed in the last 4 years, serving over 26,000 people.

These are to mention a few!
