we travel sustainably

We love to travel and discover new and interesting places. Travelling brings joy, inspiration and excitement and provides opportunities for wonderful encounters and understanding of other cultures. But in order to continue to do so, it is very important for us to offer sustainable travel. Sustainability work is ongoing and we are actively working to reduce our environmental impact by finding efficient travel solutions.

A sustainable tourism industry benefits the local population as it creates jobs. The national park and tax revenues generated by tourism lead to better living conditions for local people and to the conservation of species diversity. At Nalini safari & tours, we strive to promote the local and small-scale tourism based on the local conditions in Tanzania, where the economic benefits accrue to the local population. When you go on safari, our aim is that the only footprint we will leave will be the wheel tracks of our safari jeep.

We do what we can to minimise our impact on the environment while enhancing the positive effects of tourism for future generations to enjoy Tanzania's amazing wildlife and nature.

We have set up our own mini-project where we will plant mango trees in the northern region of Tanzania near Arusha. For every safari guest we will plant a new mango tree. The trees will be planted twice a year and as a traveller you will receive an update with a picture when your tree is planted.

For a long time we looked for a good project in Tanzania to plant trees. After a meeting in Arusha with Jon, the founder of FairTree.org, we finally found a really good partnership. Unlike many other organisations that plant trees, Fairtree works with a developed digital system that tracks the trees and gets pictures of all the trees. The local growers are not paid in full until two years have passed and they know the tree will survive.

Tree planting helps to create jobs, make the soil more fertile, combat climate change and provide shade on sunny days. In addition, local people can then pick and eat the mangoes.


we climate compensate

Climate offsetting means taking responsibility for greenhouse gas emissions by paying an amount equivalent to consumption. The money is used to neutralise the current consumption so that the total carbon footprint is zero. We have chosen to work with Carbon Tanzania to offset emissions from our safari jeeps. Carbon Tanzania has extensive experience working in East Africa and has a number of projects in landscape development, tree planting, wildlife conservation and local tribes.

If we book your domestic flight, we will also fully carbon offset it. We work with South Pole, the world's largest developer of climate projects, which has implemented more than 500 sustainable and certified projects worldwide. We have chosen to carbon offset to a project called "Kariba Forest Protection" in Zimbabwe which works to prevent deforestation and ensure biodiversity.

If you would like to offset your international flight yourself, you can do so here www.market.southpole.com

positive impact on the local community

We strive to make a difference for local people and therefore work with local actors. We support and encourage fair employment conditions and are keen to respect local customs. The majority of our guides receive ongoing training on sustainability issues and take great care to always respect the wildlife in the national parks. The majority of the hotels, camps and lodges we work with have a clear eco-profile and support local environmental and community projects. Several of them have solar panels for electricity and water heating.


animal-friendly travel

We cooperate with World Animal Protection and strongly oppose the use of animals for entertainment purposes. We only offer animal-friendly excursions and safaris and only visit animals in their natural environment. Our guides are careful to respect the wildlife on our various safaris and always stick to the designated routes. Through national park fees, you as a customer contribute to the employment of more rangers and thus protect the animals from poaching. In Zanzibar, we advise against boat trips where you can swim with dolphins.


Local partnerships

PamojaBasketball Project
The Pamoja Basketball Project in Arusha is run by Phabian, who grew up here and is passionate about giving children and young people the opportunity to play basketball regardless of their background. Here, children from vulnerable areas get a chance to meet, develop and strengthen themselves in a playful and safe environment. In addition to giving these young people basketball training, the goal is to teach them to set goals for the future. The focus is on motivating them to perform at school and ensure that they are on the right path in life.

how you can contribute to sustainable travel

food in a basket

locally produced

If you want to buy souvenirs for yourself or others, try to buy local handicrafts to support the local economy and give back to the community. Also take the opportunity to buy fruit and vegetables at markets and when you can, eat at smaller, local restaurants.


don't waste water & electricity

Save energy by switching off lights, AC and fans when you're not in the room. Avoid overusing water and try to keep your showers short.

Respect Customs & Practice

Take the opportunity to learn about the local culture and talk to the locals as the majority are happy to share their lives and traditions. Respect people's privacy and ask before taking a picture of someone up close. Learn a few greetings before your visit.


don't haggle unnecessarily

If you buy souvenirs or local goods, don't bargain for the sake of it. If it's small change for you, remember that it can be a lot of money for the local operator and that the money goes into the local economy.


show consideration for animals & nature

In national parks, it is important not to disturb the animals in any way or leave any traces behind. For example, it is not allowed to throw apple peels or banana peels into the wild as they are not naturally found there.

go on safari

The revenue from the national park fees is used, among other things, to employ rangers and thus to increase the protection of endangered species. The safari industry also provides lots of jobs for local people. So last but not least, go on safari to contribute to a positive impact in the local community.
