Corporate Social Responsibility
Within the last two decades since Intimate Places was established, corporate social responsibility has grown enormously in importance, particularly in developing countries such as Tanzania.
Through a process of trial and error, our organisation has developed a policy which we feel works well not only for us, but also for the environments in which we operate. The central theme to this policy is one of sustainability. It is our stated aim to make a long- lasting positive impact on our surroundings, on the communities in which we operate and on the economy of Tanzania in general.
The purpose of this document therefore is to provide readers with a brief insight as to our past and present achievements as well as our goals for the future.
Reasons to invest in a third world country such as Tanzania include contributing towards the growth of her economy and the standard of living of her people.
In the 20 years since Intimate Places Ltd. commenced operations in Usa River, we have seen tourism on the Northern Safari circuit flourish and have watched the standards of living of the people employed in our industry rise exponentially.
Whilst we can claim but a minute amount of credit for these developments, it is the philosophies of companies such as our own which have helped to bring about some of the developments that have been seen.
In this day and age of the global economy, it is often very easy to forget the importance of supporting local industry and to chase more competitive pricing elsewhere. In the development of all of our projects, Intimate Places has been very careful to source as much of its requirements as possible from within Tanzania. It is a tribute to our commitment to this philosophy that as much as 98% of all investments made have been sourced from within our borders.
Investing in the economy also extends to the payment of taxes due to the Tanzanian Government and Intimate Places has severally received recognition from the Tanzania Revenue Authority for its commitment to fulfill its obligations in this regard.
What our camp guests say
We stayed at the Intimate Camp in October after a last minute change from our tour operator, but we were so lucky to do so. The camp is in a beautiful location with stunning views, surrounded by the wildlife we had come to see.
We had an amazing time! everything was perfect!! Our two teenagers absolutely loved the place. Beautiful and cozy clean rooms. The staff was super kind and warm. The food was excellent. Can’t wait to come back
