Tread Lightly

Tread Lightly

Arizona Safari Jeep Tour Guides are the wildlife specialists of Sedona. Learn about the important roles that our different animals play, and what humans should, or should not do to live in harmony with local wildlife. All life is interdependent in a delicately balanced ecology, and some of the greatest harm has been done with the best intentions.

Arizona Safari Jeep Tour Guides teach guests about Sedona’s animal life, plant life, history and geology in hopes that you will get a glimpse of the extensive and intricate web of life in which we all live, and gain an appreciation of and respect for each role in the environment. Part of that respect is our No Trace ethic: take only pictures, leave only footprints.

In the case of Jeep tours, we make every effort to leave the most insignificant “footprint” possible. (If you haven’t already done so, read About Our Jeeps to find out how the set up of our Jeeps leaves the least amount of impact on the roads.) We Tread Lightly.

Tread Lightly is a mantra of responsible outdoor recreation. It is also the name of a respected and growing non-profit organization for promoting responsible outdoor recreation. To leave a good impression, you need the right information. Through education and restoration, Tread Lightly empowers generations to enjoy the outdoors responsibly. By increasing public awareness and encouraging responsible outdoor practices, the great outdoors will be accessible, open and well preserved for years to come.

Tread Lightly provides educational materials about all types of outdoor recreation, including useful and practical tips for everything from camping to boating to four-wheeling. Visit their site at
