Welcome to Footprint – The Safari Collection’s charitable foundation that unites all of our community, conservation and environmental projects.

Just by staying at Sala’s Camp, you are helping to protect one of the greatest remaining wilderness areas on earth.

 The Greater Mara Ecosystem extends over 25,000 square kilometres, crossing the Tanzanian border into the Serengeti National Park, where it spans another 30,000 km². Home to an astonishing biodiversity of plants and animals, it is one of the oldest and most complex natural environments on earth.

Environmental Conservation

Each guest staying pays a conservation fee that contributes to the essential running costs of the Masai Mara. The park fee, helps to safeguard this area of outstanding biodiversity for generations to come. In addition, your conservation fee donation is distributed among local communities bordering the reserve, creating an enduring link between conservation and development.

Rhino Conservation

Sala’s Camp is lucky enough to be situated in a rhino sanctuary area. The Safari Collection donates a small fee each guest staying per night for to the Rhino Monitoring Team, who provide vital protection to this highly threatened species. In 2019, we raised US$ 14,000 for the Mara Rhino Rangers. This assisted with fuel, training and their daily activities.

OUR FOOTPRINT PROJECTS AT SALA’S CAMP

Our dedicated Footprint foundation ensures that we impact positively everywhere we operate. Animals, the environment and people must all benefit from tourism if it is to be truly sustainable. That is why, at Sala’s Camp, we support a whole range of different initiatives.  From pangolin protection, big cat monitoring and supporting a team of rhino rangers, to health clinics and community workshops.

The Pangolin Project

Have you ever seen a pangolin? Tragically, these fascinating creatures are at risk of extinction before most people have even heard of one. As the most trafficked mammals in the world, they need our protection now. This is why we support The Pangolin Project – the only organisation of its kind in East Africa. It promotes pangolin awareness through community education and has a research team based at Sala’s Camp.

Mara Predator Conservation Programme

Sala’s Camp works in close conjunction with the Mara Cheetah Project and Mara Lion Project, assisting with fundraising, data collection and as a base for their staff when in the south of the Maasai Mara. There are opportunities for interested guests to visit the project or to have dinner with, or a lecture from, one of their team about the research and conservation activities.

Conservation Vehicle

We run a dedicated Conservation Vehicle which assists with monitoring big cat populations in the Maasai Mara on a daily basis and our other projects around Kenya at other times.

TEAMtalk

The Safari Collection runs a project called TEAMTalk with the communities on the edge of the Maasai Mara focusing on health, female empowerment, FGM reduction and HIV awareness. It is run in the local schools and uses sport to successfully facilitate workshops raising awareness of these important issues.

Health Clinics

Each year the Safari Collection runs week-long clinics all over Kenya and recently has run several dental and eye clinics in the Maasai Mara communities providing free dental care and basic medical services to those in need.
