Our Impactful Journeys

We want to make a positive impact. A positive impact on you as our guest, but also to the places we will take you in Tanzania. We truly believe that traveling and going on vacation can be about so much more than just the trip itself. It can inspire people to do better, live better lives and bring about positive change to people around them and earth. You as our guest have a unique chance to make a lasting impact on Tanzania and every place you visit here.

At Sassabi Expeditions, we invest in people and in communities to improve livelihoods. We implement various initiatives to help improve the environment and conserve and protect wildlife. If we don’t, we may not have a place to show the world for generations to come.

We define our sustainability work according to 3 pillars; Social Responsibility, Environmental Responsibility and Wildlife Conservation. By focusing on these 3 pillars, we aim to leave more behind than what we found. So, whatever we consume on every trip must be replaced… And then some.

If you are interested to know more about our sustainability efforts or support some of them yourself, we would love to hear from you.
