Our Impact

Travel has the power to transform not only the traveler, but also our world. This belief forms the foundation of our business. We have a deep commitment to protecting and preserving the destinations we visit, and building a better world through sustainable travel.
We start by focusing our tours during the off season, which creates economic stability in the tourism sector.
We operate on a completely paperless basis when communicating with clients and our contacts on the ground.
We promote conservation of local forests and recycle all plastic bottles from the tours.
We reserve 5% of our clients’ total package cost to invest in the communities and wildlife.  These community and environmental investments are tangible projects which our clients can see during their trip. All projects are determined by the communities and dependent on their most direct needs, however, we are focusing on projects that support water management solutions.
Our goal is to become a sustainable, net-positive travel company by replacing and building up all resources used by our clients during their tours.
We believe in integrating sustainability into all components of our business. We are committed to providing experiences that have a positive impact on the environment, community, and economy of each destination visited. We work closely with our local partners to ensure that travelers are respectfully visiting in a way that showcases authentic experiences.
By booking directly through our local partners, guides, encouraging clients to buy local souvenirs, and staying at locally owned & operated lodges, 90.31% of the full cost of all tours booked with Off Season Adventures has gone directly back into the local economies. With international airfare included in the package cost, 71.07% of our clients’ tours has gone back into the local economies. These flights are not booked by Off Season Adventures, but is helpful in understanding the full picture.
We recently completed our first community initiative, the Kakoi Water Project — we are investing in a project that will provide a year-round source of water to the village of Kakoi and its surrounding communities, which include three other villages, two schools, and a dispensary. By supporting these local communities that border Tarangire National Park in Tanzania, we contribute to their well-being and encourage them to make an extra effort to protect animals in the area.

We invest in forest conservation for people and climate with our partners at Carbon Tanzania. They conserve huge tracks of forested land in Tanzania. Their Yaeda Valley REDD+ Project is what we have contributed to since the inception of Off Season Adventures. To date, we have protected 206 trees by helping Carbon Tanzania preserve 35,000ha of forest in the Yaeda Valley, an area that the Hadzabe tribe have called home for thousands of years. This not only has a positive environmental impact, but also has a positive impact on the local population of the Hadzabe.
