Belong to the Wild – Ombeni’s Pledge for Wildlife
Ombeni Safaris is proud to say we offer 100% responsible and ethical wildlife viewing experiences. While wildlife viewing is included in most our tours and safaris, we believe wildlife must only be viewed in their natural environment, having the highest level of respect towards the animals. As a responsible tour and safari operator, we refuse to support any institutions that exploit wildlife for entertainment purposes and we advise our clients to do the same. Although experiences like cub petting, walking with lions and elephant rides are advertised as fun and educational, it causes stress to the animals and should be avoided at all cost. These activities directly contribute to the exploitative predator breeding and canned hunting industry. Currently, South Africa has approximately 8,000 lions and other predators living in poor conditions in cages or confined areas for human entertainment or canned hunting. If we don’t act now, the number can double faster than you know it.
