We adhere to a carefully crafted model of experiential ecotourism, anchoring all of our safaris and tours with our unique conservation philosophy of the land, care of the people and care of the wildlife.
You can therefore rest assured that RPS runs tours and safaris with a core focus on conservation – helping you enjoy all that these holiday destinations have to offer, while at the same time having as little impact on the natural surroundings as possible.
In essence, going on a safari holiday with RPS means that you are able to directly contribute towards the land and wildlife conservation in Kenya. After travelling on safari or tour with us, you will come to appreciate that as the lucky custodians of these beautiful destinations, it is therefore our responsibility to conserve their delicate eco-systems and respect the wild animals they’re home to, as well as educate surrounding communities on how to continue caring for them.
At each of the hotels / lodges and safari destinations, we’ve invested in extensive training to produce expert safari guides and naturalists who are able to give you a deep understanding of each game reserve’s unique qualities and potential future challenges.
We tread lightly, partner with green safari lodges where possible, apply eco-sensitivity in all that we do. By doing all of this, we genuinely believe that we can help protect threatened ecosystems, endangered species and their precious diversity of wildlife areas. To this effect, we ONLY partner with agents/ lodges that pass the bellow criteria:
