During your stay at a lodge/camp, you will be able to visit the local people and see where and how they live. They will show you inside their houses and how they tend to their livestock. You may also get a chance to buy some of the crafts that they have made right there in their villages. Developing an understanding of the cultures and traditions of the people and country you are visiting can help expand our minds and vision towards the future.
The local people also love it when you show an interest in their country and your support for their people and wildlife. Conservation of animals and plants is only as strong as the people who live in their vicinity. Without the engagement and involvement of such people, conservation is likely to exist only on paper. Your visit to local villages is the basis to providing educational and financial empowerment to local communities.
