Wilderness Safaris partners with Qatar Airways to support sustainable tourism initiatives
As part of the partnership, the African Camp Specialist will plant 40 native saplings for every Qatar Airways booking, which will help restore land in the crucial “buffer zone” of the Volcanoes National Park in Rwanda.
The trees will be sourced from local nurseries and community members will be hired to plant them.
Qatar Airways passengers will also participate in conservation experiences at selected wilderness camps, while the two companies will collaborate on the development of photographs, videos and articles to promote the experiences offered by the two brands.
“We are delighted to partner with Qatar Airways not only to encourage air travel, but also to encourage our customers to return to Africa and stay in our Wilderness camps, while supporting vital conservation efforts on behalf of communities and of the regions in which we operate. Said Amanda Wilson, vice president of partnerships at Wilderness Safaris.
“With Qatar Airways recently expanding its routes to African destinations, such as Harare and Lusaka, Wilderness and Qatar Airways can work together to make travel a positive force, continuing to support the protection of the most valuable wild areas and wildlife. in the world. “
