The Uganda Conservation Foundation was established to help previously war-stricken, high biodiversity regions in Uganda. Severe poaching had killed all the Rhino and many of the large herds of Elephants that once made Uganda the country with the most mega-herbivores per km2 in Africa. The Foundation evolved from a 1990s project, ‘Elephants, Crops and People’, undertaken by Michael Keigwin in Ishasha (QENP). The project is still a core pillar of UCF activity, with Elephant trenches and Bee-fences constructed and maintained by local committees, as well as the implementation of community income generation schemes.
The Uganda Conservation Foundation is a proactive organization - 90% of all donations and funding go directly into the field. And your journey discovering Africa contributes to this, as The Far Horizons makes a donation to UCF projects for every safari sold.
We are also developing a leaflet to enclose in client welcome packs that gives more information on the organisation and its work. This makes it easy for clients to make a donation of their own, ultimately helping UCF conserve the wild places they have been lucky enough to visit.
Our Commitment to Responsible Tourism
We are current, active and passionate supporters of conservation and community initiatives through our partnership with the Uganda Conservation Foundation. In fact, for every Ugandan safari sold, we make a donation to UCF for one of their valuable conservation projects in and around Uganda’s national parks.
When planning itineraries, our policy is to select the lodges and operators that not only suit our client, but also have strong environmental credentials - such as carbon neutral status and low-impact design; fair and local employment policies; community income generation projects; conservation activities and local food sourcing. We also take care to weave into our client itineraries the many authentic community encounters that can be enjoyed in our destinations as part of the USAID funded STAR (Sustainable Tourism in the Albertine Rift) project.
As a result of our commitment to conservation and communities, we were independently voted the no 1 tour operator in Uganda in 2012 for 'Sustainable Tourism'.
