The African Paddling Association is a non-profit organisation establised to promote the status and interest of paddling tour operators and guides.
Our members are bound to adhere to strict operation, conservation and consideration ethics in order to create a Professional Paddling Association for all.
The operator will read, understand and adhere to the Operating Standards of the discipline offered.
We are committed to minimum physical impact on the environment. Guides will set the example. We will not cut, burn, clear or damage banks or shores, and will leave no sign of our presence. We will protect animal and birdlife and leave wildlife habitats undisturbed. Where landings or established camps are constructed, they will harmonise with their surroundings; keep traffic, waste and noise to a minimum; and not pollute the area or water in any way.
The wetter the better
