The Challenges We Face

OUR STORY

The Safari Industry is hard hit with zero income since mid-March 2020! Bookings for the Tourist “Peak Season” (July to October) are currently being cancelled or postponed. Many Tour Operators, Hotels and Lodges face grave challenges in having to make staff members redundant, offering substantial pay cuts or sending their staff on unpaid leaves / furloughs.

The Government of Kenya is not able to support the Private Sector with “bail-outs” as other countries in Europe or the US are currently receiving. Driver/ Guides are sitting at home, idle, having been laid off or on heavy pay cuts. Survival is difficult for everyone.

Safari vehicles are parked in our yards with no work, yet overhead costs have to be met. With many passionate guides focused on conservation, these guides can be utilized to flock our National parks, game reserves & conservancies, use our Safari vehicles and report to rangers and wardens any “activity” that may be suspicious. “Activity” in the park acts as a “deterrent” for poachers and this is one aspect where surveillance units can work well.

These must be out “day & night” to ensure surveillance is 24 hours. Our guides / vehicles can “AID” rangers in their work and support conservation efforts.
