BirdsConTour has created the 'Cleaning the routes traveled' project in 2013 because we know how important clean tourist attractions are to the local tourism industry.
Black garbage bags and a tool for collecting litter are always part of the luggage and wherever time is available and litter is lying around next to the road traveled, a cleaning stop is arranged. Simultaneously this offers a break from the tiring driving and gives everybody the chance to stretch his or her legs while doing something productive.
Guests react very positive to this project and mostly assist in picking up litter.
There is simply no better way of keeping the roads traveled clean and leaves a good impression on the guide, the tour company and finally even on the country and its people.
On the 25th of October BirdsConTour together with Hannes from Austria cleaned the litter around the famous termite mound between Okahandja and Otjiwarongo, while being on a 10 day Namibia tour organized by Gruber Reisen and Pack Safari, led by BirdsConTour.
