What Is Sustainable Tourism?

 

Sustainable tourism is an approach to tourism that prioritises a low environmental impact and social responsibility. It aims to provide a positive experience for local people as well as the tourists themselves.

Sustainable tourism is a commonly adopted practice in successful ecotourism, and it’s at the heart of our operations in Zambia, with all of our tours giving back to the community and supporting the local economy.

What Is Ecotourism?

 

Ecotourism is a branch of tourism that offers visitors the opportunity to appreciate the natural landscapes, wildlife and local culture of an area. It is intended to promote the conservation of these natural resources for future generations. All of our sustainable safari tours offer plenty of opportunities to soak up the rich culture and history of Zambia, with many trips available to monuments, museums and off-the-beaten-track gems that raise awareness of the best Zambia has to offer and provide an incredible immersion into nature at its best.

Our Commitment to Eco Travel in Africa

At Ntanda Ventures, Zambia is our passion, so we do all we can to give back to the community.

  • We promote growth by employing local residents and using locally sourced goods and supplies where possible
  • We plant paw paw and avocado trees (from the seeds of fruits) and give excess plants back to the community
  • We use energy-efficient equipment and have inverters and solar backup
  • All goods on our property are recycled where possible
  • Our budget packages include the extras to add a little luxury to your safari. We are very proud of our chitenge bags (a local material usually worn as a wrap around) which include your organic toiletries made in Zambia. Each bag includes a locally crafted gift just for you.

We also partner with Zambia’s Child, which helps provide quality education for Zambian school children, especially underprivileged and orphaned children or those who have dropped out of school. Tragically, healthcare and education are very basic. The future of Zambia, this country that we have a deep love for, is in the hands of children like these, and we hope that by playing a small part and selling Zambia safari packages that support this organisation and the schools it runs, we can help ensure that Zambia can continue giving others the same extraordinary experiences we’ve been fortunate enough to enjoy.

Ntanda Ventures also encourages the “lodge and school projects” in Zambia. These are the perfect add-on for a family holiday, with activities including school visits and interaction with the children, art safaris, photography and visits to the Chipembele Wildlife Education Trust and CSL anti-poaching unit.

Pack for a Purpose
Travellers like to make a lasting impact in the community at your travel destination. If you save just a few kilos of space in your suitcase and take supplies, you’ll make a priceless impact in the lives of local children and families. They are always looking for new books and love to receive good used children’s books. Basic supplies such as crayons, paints, paper, glue etc are always welcome. Uyoba school in Mfuwe is always grateful and well worth a visit.

The Kuomboka Ceremony

Kuomboka is a word in the Lozi language which literally means ‘to get out of water’.  The traditional ceremony takes place at the end of the rainy season, when the upper Zambezi River floods the plains of the Western Province. The festival celebrates the move of the Litunga, king of the Lozi people, from his compound at Lealui in the Barotse flood plain of the Zambezi River to Limulunga on higher ground.

Fantastic

I can’t thank Kerry and the team enough for the wonderful holiday we have just experienced, all organised by Ntanda Ventures.

Thank you, thank you, thank you. We will return and certainly use you for any future bookings.
