Eco-travel in South or East Africa? Can I trust what the tour companies and lodges say?

Jump to last reply

I am in the very early stages of planning our trip for March '08, (haven't decided where in East or South Africa yet) and I would very much prefer to go with a tour company that is Africa based, and tries to give back to the communities visited, as well as stay in lodges that are sustainably run (as much as possible, I realize it's not easy). Some of the lodges tout their eco capabilities and sensitivity. Can I trust what they say, and does anyone have any "green" recommendations? I know that the wonderful Fodorite community will have some ideas.
Thanks!
