Sustainable Development

Giving back to the world we travel in. Our initiative stems from our company philosophy. Africa Eco Adventures Ltd cares deeply about the residents of Mara, many of whom are employed by the tourism industry and want a clean space for everyone who relies on the location. As many recent scientific studies have shown, the proliferation of plastics can cause grave health concerns. A recent study indicates that drinking water has a large amount of microplastics in it. Since many residents of Mara Talek rely on well water, the collection of plastics is a prime human health and environmental concern.

Œpesa for plastic

Initiated through grassroots participation, our initiative is known as Œpesa for plastic¹, where we rely on a financial incentive model for plastic collection. Through this model, Africa Eco Adventures Ltd has paid one shilling for every plastic bottle collected. This initiative has been extremely successful, with over 100,000 bottles collected. In recent days residents of Talek have been collecting bottles, and the town is noticeably cleaner.

The program has funded many women who have been the main plastics collectors, many of whom had no previous reliable income. Our next phase is to set up a series of trash bins around Talek, for which there would also be periodic trash collection and recycling. We have provided durable dustbins in the Mara Talek Area, and our team collects plastic bottles and trash regularly. We all want to have a clean environment for the places that we live in.

"It was an early morning, but well worth it! Captain Mervin was knowledgeable and a great pilot. We were able to see the rivers and wildlife… simply gorgeous. I highly recommend this balloon ride!"
Debra G
"Stunning sunrise and views of the Mara as well as many animal sightings including elephants, lions, cheetahs, giraffe, zebra, buffalo, wildebeest and so many more. Captain Riz was very informative about the land and animals and ensured a smooth take-off and landing. After landing, we were treated to a lovely champagne breakfast and the facilities included a ‘loo with a view’. Highly recommend taking this flight when in the Mara!"
Payal S
"An amazing experience and a great opportunity to see the Masai Mara from another perspective! Lions, elephants, ostrichs, pumba and the big migration, we’ve seen it all :) Captain Marvin is a lovely man who sees and knows a lot and also the rest of the staff, food etc is friendly and well organized. So this is something you have to do!!"
