By law, every UK travel company which sells air holidays and flights is required to hold an Air Travel Organiser’s Licence (ATOL). If a travel company with an ATOL ceases trading, the ATOL scheme protects customers who had booked holidays with the firm. It ensures they do not get stranded abroad or lose money. Find out more >>
At African Adventures, we are committed to protecting the environment and will be investing more resources to help combat climate change as we grow. It is important that our work does not have a negative impact on the world around us; after all, our primary objective as an organisation is to improve the lives of our volunteers in the UK and our host communities in Africa.
Every organisation and individual has a carbon footprint. Even with the most determined efforts to cut emissions at source, we are all still responsible for carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases going into the atmosphere, the sheer volume of which is causing global climate change.
We can choose to ignore this or we can choose to take responsibility. One way of doing so is to ensure that an equivalent amount of carbon is absorbed elsewhere. African Adventures is choosing to take responsibility. We have a duty to operate in a way that protects the environment and that is why our first step towards operating at carbon neutral is to offer you, our volunteers, an opportunity to play your part by offsetting your carbon emissions.
All you need to do is use the calculator below to work out what amount you need to contribute to offset the emissions from your flight to Africa. Once you have paid this amount, you can be happy in the knowledge that you have addressed any potential negative effects resulting from your trip to Africa.
