At Jothado Safaris, we believe that community outreaches and engagements are powerful learning tools that improve lives and help create appreciation and therefore conservation of tourism resources.
We consider Local communities to be an important asset in tourism development as it is within their premises that the tourism activities take place.
We, therefore, find it necessary to organize and reach out to these communities, interact with them and render any assistance that is within our capacities.
While embarking on any safari, we make sure that we create some time for both our clientele and staff to interact with and share moments with the members of the community. Through these interactions, we are able to create a positive impact on the communities.
Local communities are a very important element of the tourism products, as hosts at a destination they have a very crucial role in the development and delivery of the tourism products
Meeting local people and experiencing their culture is the best way to discover the true essence of a destination. Whether you’re catching your dinner with a local fisherman or learning to surf from someone who grew up riding those waves, it’s these human-to-human interactions that make our travels so meaningful and unforgettable.
But it can be easy to forget that the people we visit have lives of their own and that our vacation destinations are their neighborhoods, sacred sites, and local parks. Because tourism pervades their everyday lives, host communities feel its impact the greatest
It should therefore be everyone’s responsibility to reach out to these communities and support them in one way or another in compensation for the negative impacts resulting from our tourism operations and activities.
Community outreach is a key aspect of environmental and cultural heritage protection efforts as it increases awareness, recognition and respect of nature and mankind’s past, current and future use and enjoyment of the environment resources on which tourism thrives.
