CALLING ALL VISITORS
Tourism, a valuable source of foreign currency to East Africa, seems set to become the world's largest industry, with people travelling internationally each year. The resulting environmental, cultural and ethical impacts on destinations are profound. However, travel is a natural right of all people - and is a crucial ingredient of world peace and understanding.
With rights come responsibilities and respect for the dignity and diversity of other cultures and concern for the natural resources of the destinations we visit. It is up to us to ensure that they survive for future generations to enjoy.
While you are in East Africa, we hope you will take the opportunity to learn more about its extraordinary geography, culture and customs.
Listen to the local people and learn about locally-based and international conservation efforts.
Many organisations are working to protect this land and people, and they need your help.
