Safety and Compliance

Best practice is a method or technique that has been generally accepted as superior to any alternatives because it produces results that are superior to those achieved by other means or because it has become a standard way of doing things, e.g., a standard way of complying with legal or ethical requirements.   Or both.

At Nomad Safaris best practice is pursued vigorously with continous assement using both internal and external audits to ensure that legal compliance is just a part of quality control.

Using various external bodies a framework has been built where all new staff, products, procedures have to be carefully evaluated before implementing within the organisation.

The following are the various external tests Nomad Safaris subjects itself to comply and exceed:-
