Camp Kohka promotes Eco-Tourism, Conservation and Development
Camp Kohka believes that we are stewards on this earth; that we have not inherited it from our parents, but rather we are renting it from our children; that if tourism does not contribute to the protection of flora and fauna, the prevention and repair of environmental degradation, the economic well-being of local communities, and respect for local cultures; it is not a justifiable activity. Outlined below are the ways in which Camp Kohka have translated these beliefs into action.

We support indigenous businesses by buying local goods and services.
Having emphasized supporting indigenous businesses and people by buying local goods and services we have pioneered environmentally sensitive tourism in Pench.

We promote meaningful contact between travelers and local people.
To promote meaningful contact between travelers and local people includes: arranging home stays, and providing opportunities for children from schools in India to participate in our ecology and conservation workshops to visit and interact with children their own age in Kohka village that minimize environmental damage

Wildlife watching holidays often focus on the iconic species such as whales, tigers and polar bears, many of which are often the most threatened. So can wildlife tourism help conserve our endangered species?
Some people believe these endangered animals should be kept away from tourists, wrapped up in cotton wool, and some even believe that they should be taken out of the wild to be kept in captivity as a ‘reserve’ to prevent extinction. However, this is preservation rather than conservation and is treating the symptoms not finding a cure. Conservation is about more than saving animals; conservation is maintaining habitats and changing opinions. Animals are primarily endangered by the actions of people, from deforestation to pollution and hunting. Wildlife tourism can have a role to play in stopping detrimental activities by increasing awareness and encouraging people to relish rather than ravish the natural environment.
