CARBON OFF-SETTING

Planting trees has mind-blowing potential to help our planet. By absorbing and storing carbon dioxide, every living tree plays its part in helping to reduce carbon emissions which are driving global warming. What’s more, trees boost wildlife, stabilise water supplies and are one of the easiest and most accessible ways for everyone to make a difference.

HELI-EXCURSIONS: FLY AND PLANT

Keeping our carbon footprint as low as possible is very important to us. Therefore, for every hour of flying in our helicopter we plant six indigenous trees. This offsets the carbon footprint by over three times, making it one of the first climate positive tourist helicopters in the world. Our pilot also keeps a box of indigenous ‘seed balls’ on board. These come encased in compost ready to plant and germinate themselves when conditions are right. Guests can launch them out of the helicopter, literally planting trees as they fly.

TREE PLANTING

Every year The Safari Collection plants trees to offset its carbon footprint. The location where we plant varies each year, but we always plant indigenous Kenyan species in a carefully chosen area which supports vital water catchments and where indigenous forests are in need of reforestation and protection.

Since 2019, Sasaab has become our first fully carbon negative lodge. It plants enough trees to absorb more carbon dioxide than the lodge and all its activities produce, making it a climate positive property.

By the end of 2020, the rest of the company will be carbon negative and climate positive too. We are nearly there!
