Selous Safari Camps in the South of Tanzania, Siwandu and Jongomero, have passed through the rigorous carbon footprint calculator of Carbonscored. Both camps received a healthy score, well below the industry average. This is great news for guests in-the-know who are conscious about their carbon footprint on holiday.
Carbonscored is a unique tool that accurately scores and reports the carbon footprint of tourism establishments and services around the world. This unique independent tool, a partnership between Far and Wild Travel and ecollective Travel, was developed to address the growing consumer demand of travelers wishing to make more sustainable, travel choices.
The scoring criteria examines in close detail, aspects such as how power is being generated, to where food and vegetables are sourced from, as well as what offsetting initiatives are already in place.
With Siwandu and Jongomero now carbon-scored, we are happy to assure our guests that they are making a sustainable travel choice by visiting these two properties with The Selous Safari Company.
