“Tourism that takes full account of its current and future economic, social and environmental impacts, addressing the needs of visitors, the industry, the environment and host communities”


Tanzania, a place known for its adventure, beauty, diversity, colour, and amazing people has, since years, been a really loved destination amongst travellers from every corner of the world. Travelling with Lafayette Expeditions means responsible travel. We are committed to ensuring that our guests only leave a positive footprint behind. We pay great attention to the impact that Tanzania tourism has on the environment, the local communities and our employees as well. 

Think about this! Eco-tourism is all about travelling lightly, leaving no heavy footprints on the terrain you’re exploring, and staying in safari lodges/camps that are serious about the environment, the wildlife and the communities that surround them. This is how we do it.

Eco-friendly activities

We see mother nature as our most precious asset and try to minimize our impact. The landscape of Tanzania is incredibly beautiful. We therefore encourage our guests to go on excursions like walking, hiking and biking, since they leave little footprints and it’s healthy!

Green and fair accommodation

We are paying attention to the eco-friendly safari lodges/camps who truly are setting the standard for responsible and sustainable travel. We are partnering with safari lodges/camps who have turned its eyes towards eco-friendly practices, conservation programmes, and sustainable approaches in order to have minimal impact on the area in which it is built. We fully embrace these properties for their efforts in becoming eco-friendly.  Our aim is to be as green as possible and to be part of the development of the local populations.

 Giving back to the community

“A kind gesture can reach a wound that only compassion can heal.” ― Steve Maraboli. When it comes to giving back to the community, any action big or small can make a real difference. We at Lafayette Expeditions play an active role in our community.
