Luambe National Park – the world’s most carbon neutral!
We are extremely excited to announce that Luambe National Park has recently achieved a conservation milestone as we have become the most carbon neutral National Park in the WORLD! This is something we are are very proud to be able to achieve as we continue to strive to conserve this little piece of Africa.
So what does it mean to visit the most carbon neutral Park in the world? Well, with Lower Zambezi National Park becoming the world’s first to achieve carbon neutrality from operations about a year and a half ago, Luambe National Park decided to go a step further by not only offsetting just the operational emissions but actually offsetting all tourism activities associated with the Park – this even includes guest’s international airline travel!
This means that guests visiting Luambe Camp will not only be able to safari and enjoy the pristine wilderness that Luambe offers but do so knowing that their travel carbon footprint has been fully offset as a result of the commitment by Luambe Camp.
Reaching the goal of becoming the most carbon neutral National Park in the world is no easy task and involved Luambe Camp fully funding the initiative that is managed by the USAID-funded Community Forests Program and Bio Carbon Partner’s committed partnership with the Department of National Parks and Wildlife. Through these organisations Luambe Conservation Project decided to purchase Verified Carbon Standard audited forest carbon offsets generated within Zambia through BCP’s REDD+ projects which resulted in achieving Luambe’s carbon neutral status.
As this exciting piece of news travels across the world, we hope that many will hear of and support Luambe Camp in this initiative. We hope that all who visit the park will do so knowing that they are supporting an organisation that works passionately towards conserving Luambe and contributing to the protection of its surrounding forests.
