Our Sustainable Safaris Practices
Reducing Plastic Pollution
There is a high concern about the effect the world is facing from plastic pollution. The Aquatic Life, Wildlife, and Human Population are at high risk of being affected. As part of an effort to participate in the sustainable safari campaign, At Cheetah Safaris we have reusable water bottles that are well designed to hold any kind of drink. Our Land Cruiser Jeeps are fitted with dispensable water tanks that are filled every time they’re empty with, clean water. We ensure you get clean water all through the safari, well-distilled mineral water.
Your Safari Holiday Supports Local Community Projects in Kenya
Every Safari you book with us, 10% of the booking fees go to support community projects, take kids to school, and create proper wildlife-human interaction awareness. We promote local projects to destinations we frequent like the Masai Mara Reserve, Serengeti National Park, Amboseli National Park, Bwindi Impenetrable Forest Park, Ngorongorongoro Conservation Area, and many more. Our Sustainable Safari Policy ensures that communities living within and around our protected wildlife areas are supported immensly to show the impact of tourism and safaris.
Promoting Ethical Safari Souvenirs
We ensure our guests buy souvenirs that are not made from wildlife products such as Tusks and horns Elephant Rhinos, Lion Teech, and Much More. These products might’ve been sourced from animals killed for them, denying wildfires their right to live. With a strict ban on wildlife product trade, one is guaranteed a lifetime in jail in Kenya. We, therefore, advise our guests not to carry, buy or claim to own any wildlife product which might land them in the hand of tough law.
Pack For A Purpose
We are proud members of Pack for a Purpose, an initiative that allows travelers like you to make a lasting impact in the community at your travel destination. If you save just a few kilos of space in your suitcase and take supplies for the projects we support in need, you’ll make a priceless impact in the lives of our local children and families.

Most of our safaris involves community projects, wildlife awareness education to communities and children. We also try improve lives by providing government education,and how to improve their environment and living with wildlife.We also employ some to be our local guides and they get paid to at least make their livelihood sustained. By our Guests visiting, communities are guaranteed of sustained living.
Working in partnership with NGOs, we at Cheetah Safaris ensures that our community members, kids and youth are well educated. We have worked with Biglife Foundation to support kids in Amboseli Regions. We believe in education empowerment to the young generation that will help them engage with the outside society as well as proptect their own. As part of our Sustainable Safaris program, we hope to impact more children.
We realised that our single use plastic bottles are so dangerous to our environme nt,and back in 2019, we had to start responsible practices to have water while on safari. We introduced this beautiful reusable bottle that you can use individually for your water, and or any other drink in it. They are portable and able to keep your drinks cool. Also are best used since they are not pollutants, and they last long as part of our Sustainable Safaris.
Visiting a National Park or Reserve, its for leisure and to refresh,at the same time learn and enjoy the serenity of the wild with Wildlife.We have park rules that we always provide you before you start your safari so as you can get familiar with them to respect wildlife space. We always Say, Wildlife have right of movement in the wild.
We Dont Support Hunting, Poaching or Bush Meat Practices. We value the life and existence of wildlife, and we support many Organisation in wildlife protection. Kenya is one of the leading wildlife protector and does not condone any kind of wildlife threatening. We are guided by the toughest law to protect wildlife in our safaris.
