Environment

Waste
All our travellers are sent detailed pre-departure information upon booking their trip. This includes information on travelling responsibly and minimising their impact on the local environment. A section is devoted to minimising waste whilst travelling. Travellers are encouraged to remove unnecessary packaging from items before leaving home (recycling facilities are often more accessible in home countries) and to use either rechargeable batteries , wind-up or solar-powered electrical items-such as torches, cameras and mobile phones.
At the start of your trip your Tour Leader will aso remind the group of the importance of disposing of waste appropriately.

Suppliers
Our local Moroccan operator is a key player in the Ait Ouhem Association for Development, a local, community-led organisation in the Atlas Mountains. For every Moroccan tour booked we donate £5 per passenger to help the Association achieve its goals which includes reforestation in the mountains around the village to try and limit further soil erosion.

Community

Volunteering and Charity
We are proud to be working with the Ait Ouhem Association for Development, a local, community-led organisation in the Atlas Mountains. For every Moroccan tour booked we donate £5 per passenger to help the Association achieve its goals of:

1. Building a dispensary in the village to provide people with at least emergency first aid medical supplies. (The nearest hospital is 70 km away).

2. To provide houses with tap water.

3. Encouraging students of the village to continue their studies through buying necessary materials such as bags, books, books, pens.

4. To plant different trees in the mountains all around the village to stop or at least limit erosion.

5. Creating a textile cooperative for women so that they can earn a living that is otherwise not available to them.

Friends and Neighbours
We are very keen generally, that the income from our trips is dispersed as widely as possible within the local community and goes to small local service providers and not multi-nationals. All the accommodation and restaurants we use on our trip are small locally-run establishments and all our guides are local Moroccans.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?


Oh - lots and lots - loved the crossing of the Atlas mountains, the Sahara desert camp, visit to the rug collective, guided tour of the valley farms ...
All the accomodation was good, and the food fine - though it may be a while before i choose tagine for a meal (-: Our guide was lovely, informative, friendly and very responsible

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?


Go for it - I am heading fast for 70 years of age, travelled with a small group of much younger people and enjoyed it very much - I had no issues about not tackling anything I didn't feel like - and felt well cared for throughout

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


We certainly contributed to the local economy - accomodation, food, tours etc
We drove in an air conditioned vehicle, stayed in places (except for the Sahara camp with, almost certainly non renewable energy sources so I think our contribution to the environment was minimal , as to conservation

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?


It was terrific - great service from Responsible Travels, well planned and executed tour

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?


I loved the night in the Sahara and travelling through the High Atlas

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?


There is a lot of time spent on the bus so bring a good book. Also remember the driver sees this landscape all the time and while it is extraordinary to us to him it's not so shout stop when you need to and get off to admire and photograph.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


I feel it may have had some benefit by bringing income into some of the more remote areas but I don't feel I spent enough time in each of the towns to comment on the other criteria

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?


I had a great time but it was fairly rushed - I would love to have more time in each area
