Special Programmes,
Pro-Poor Tourism
Philadelphia Safaris seeks to address pro-poor tourism deeply in this era. Evidence shows that growth alone is not sufficient to stop the marginalization of Africa and to improve the standards of living of its inhabitants. What is necessary for poverty reduction
is a strategy of pro-poor growth in which economic growth is combined with reductions in inequality.

From the analysis of the tourism industry and through the evidence shown by case studies conducted by various institutions in the last few years, it seems clear that tourism has great potentialities for poverty reduction purposes.

As an industry, it is labor-intensive; it is less vulnerable than traditional sectors; it is noncyclical; it has a catalytic effect on the rest of the economy; it has lower barriers to entry and creates better and more gender concerned jobs than most sectors. More important: being built on natural and cultural assets and consumed onsite, it can reach the poor in rural areas where poverty is harsher.
Philadelphia Safaris desires to fully assess the potentialities of tourism for pro-poor growth and focusing on people’s livelihoods, the issues of distribution, and how poverty concerns could be embedded into mainstream tourism policy making.

Eco-tourism

Philadelphia Safaris regards tourism and conservation comprehensive lifelong process. Environmental Education can help people in leading
a meaningful and environmentally sound life through gaining
understanding of the major problems of the contemporary world,
developing attitudes, skills and alternative lifestyles that may play a
productive role towards improving and protecting the environment
with due regard given to ethical values.

By adopting a holistic approach rooted in a broad interdisciplinary
base,Philadelphia Safaris believes it can recreate an overall
perspective which acknowledges the fact that the natural environment
and human–made environment are profoundly interdependent.
Outdoor training, team building and environmental education
programmes thus can help reveal the enduring continuity which links
the acts of today to the consequences of tomorrow.
Although humans have exceptional characteristics such as culture,
faith, technology and consciousness that set us apart from other life
forms, we are only one of many species that interdependently exist in
the global ecosystem. Our actions must be consonant with the earth’s
functions if we are to survive and maintain a reasonable quality of
life.

By touring with us you elavate and change the status of a house hol.You put a meal on the table, send a child to school and empower a woman.

See you soon.
