When we act in ways that confirm our ideals, we make the ideal our reality.

Exquisite Safaris is a pioneer in Philanthropic Travel -our mission is to include philanthropic intent, inspiration, education & empowerment into every luxury travel experience we create. We believe that international travel should enlighten and enrich both traveler and host, while serving as a bridge over which passes friendship, peace, ancient wisdom, technological innovation and economic sustainability.

Historically, the worldwide travel industry has generated large profits and delivered culturally insulated travel experiences while ignoring the welfare of the local communities their clients visit. Those greedy corporate practices excluded economically challenged communities from sharing a reasonable percentage of the prosperity created when travelers visit their World Heritage Sites, enjoy their culture and recreate in their unique environments.

Today, there are old line travel companies announcing their philanthropic programs and advertising a token ‘giving back,’ trip (of the year) or new companies donating to charity if you sign up by X date -just so they can market to you.

Please support the travel industry’s rush to embrace the marketing value of Philanthropic Travel by gently reminding them to increase their commitments to community in at least direct proportion to their marketing campaign budgets. Defining and demanding the full potential of philanthropic travel lies quietly in the hands of you -the enlightened consumer.

“If you think you’re too small to have an impact, try going to bed with a mosquito.”
Anita Roddick
