Eco Safaris in Kenya

Chaz Tours and Travel has a week-long tour, the Chaz Tours and Travel which takes in a wide variety of habitats and allows visitors to tick off an extensive list of wildlife. Accommodation is in small, exclusive, comfortable, safari camps in private wilderness conservancies, and three of Kenya's classic national parks: Amboseli, Lake Nakuru and Masai Mara. In terms of responsible travel, the first stop is the most interesting. Selenkay Conservation Area, just north of Amboseli National Park, is a 15,000-acre private game reserve within a vast tract of land owned by the Kisonko clan of the Masai. This community has set aside the area as a reserve for wildlife and in return is receiving an income from tourism, which is used to fund community projects such as schools and water supplies. Most of the staff in the camp are Masai, and guests, limited to 12, are taken on game walks by Masai trackers. Getting there: Chaz Tours and Travel

We donate 10% of all post-tax profits to fund community and/or conservation projects. Community projects are operated with the local villagers as the operators and managers; Eco-resorts provides advice and guidance when requested, but abides by local beliefs and traditions.
