Championing Ecotourism in Uganda
Ecotourism in Uganda
Ecotourism itself is a new travel ethic that Bujuku Eco Tours & Travel promotes in response to the high-demand of natural travel experience industry. It concerns two aspects which are the market and the goal. The market aspect is to improve the people economy while the goal is to preserve tourist attractions and the surrounding environment.
Tourism, as a whole, has adversely affected the natural beauty of certain places. This is a consequence of commercializing tourist destinations in order to suit the tourism standards. The constantly deteriorating climate is a wake-up call for tourism enthusiasts. In the face of this adversity, nature tourism has come as a blessing. The impact of ecotourism is positive and beneficial for hosts, travelers as well as the world, in general.
One of our main goals of ecotourism in uganda is to increase the awareness tourists have about the social conditions surrounding East African travel destinations. Such conditions as poverty are often hidden from tourists. With Ecotourism in Uganda we aim to expose tourists to the realities of social and economic climates in these areas.
Here’s why we practice and support ecotourism in Uganda:
- Creating environmental and cultural awareness.
- Providing direct financial benefits for conservation.
- Benefits to the local people economically, socially and psychologically.
- Travel and adventure with a minimal impact on the environment.
- Providing and enjoying a nature-focused travel experience without the waste.
Eco-tourism contributes to conservation of biodiversity; sustains the well-being of local people; involves responsible action on the part of tourist and the tourism industry; promotes small and medium tourism enterprises; requires lowest possible consumption of natural resources; stresses local participation, ownership, and business opportunities, particularly for rural people; and above all includes the learning experiences.
For over the years across Africa and the world in general; Glaciers are melting, sea levels are rising, cloud forests are dying, and wildlife is scrambling to keep pace. It has become clear that humans have caused most of the past century’s warming by releasing heat-trapping gases as we power our modern lives. Called greenhouse gases, their levels are higher now than at any time in the last 800,000 years. This calls for the need for sustainable tourism to protect tourist sites and destinations.
