Our commitment is to ensure that all travel is 100% offset and supports initiatives that make a positive social, economic and environmental impact
It is for this reason that we only work with people and properties who share our vision of sustainable travel and whose ethics echo our own. The power of our partnerships with local communities and on-the-ground organizations lies in our combined creative output – one that seeks to deliver health, housing, employment and the skills requisite for conservation and gender empowerment. As such ROAR AFRICA imbues every curated journey we design with a sense of humanity – an intangible, undefinable quality but one with the power to sustain us all.
‘The decision to travel to Africa almost inevitably leads to rediscovering oneself in nature. It has been my immense privilege over the years to observe the profound experiences our guests have had when they realise the contribution they are making through their personal travel experience. The serendipity of authentic travel is how it highlights the connectivity that exists between all living things – from animals to trees to the local communities that we visit, and of course, the travelers themselves.’ – Deborah Calmeyer, ROAR AFRICA CEO & Founder
What sets this revolutionary offset program apart from others is its focus on the entirety of the travel experience. While existing offset programs focus solely on long-haul flights, this groundbreaking approach extends beyond just the flight to Africa to every element of the journey.
This includes fuel, plastic used, non-renewable energy utilized on site, safari vehicles, lodge hops via plane or helicopter and even human waste. These activities are not only neutralized, but the funds from the offset go to specific projects that have been verified by Proof of Impact. As seen in Financial Times
