Traveler's Legacy Program
In all regions of the world, a voluntary movement called "traveler's
philanthropy" is emerging. Simply put, traveler's philanthropy is a three-way
partnership between the travel provider, the travel host, and you, the
traveler. The essence of traveler's philanthropy is that the communities
to which we travel both need and deserve our support.
The African Conservancy Traveler's Legacy Program was developed on
the assumption that the African Conservancy, its hospitality provider
partners in Zambia, and its traveling members all share a common goal:
the conservation and re-habilitation of the African wilderness. Specifically,
our practical goal is to improve the quality of life for humans and wildlife
sharing the National Parks, Game Management Areas, and the towns and
villages we visit on African Conservancy tours.
The Role of the African Conservancy
The African Conservancy allocates a portion of each traveler's tour
cost to charitable environmental or socio-economic projects initiated
by hospitality providers and/or the local business community. The amount
donated per traveler is calculated on a per bed night basis (e.g., $20.00
per bed night, 14-night tour would result in a $280.00 donation), which
varies from year to year.
The Role of our Tourism Partners
Tourism partners are directly involved with the funding, management,
and operations of the projects supported by the Traveler's Legacy program.
Tourism partners are selected and evaluated annually on the basis of
four areas of performance:
- Quality of Services -- lodging, food, service and guiding.
- Environmental-Consciousness -- trash disposal and use of pollutants,
- Labor Distribution -- positive ratio of local vs. foreign staff.
- Community Involvement -- active in the protection of the habitat
in which they operate, and in the socio-economic development of the
communities that surround them.
The Role of the Traveler
Because the Traveler's Legacy program is intended to engage the traveler
in the welfare of the destinations visited, the traveler will ultimately
select to which project his/her funding will be allocated. At each destination,
the hospitality providers will demonstrate the need, effectiveness, and
efficiency of their project through interpretation. This is one of the
many things that makes the program so special.
Travelers will select their project upon their return home, and will
be kept informed of project developments at regular intervals.
