Responsible tourism: Borneo Safari, volunteer & trek

Environment

We're committed to sustainability, in the communities in which we operate and in the ecosystems we encounter. We seek to minimise the impact of our trips by minimising and properly disposing of waste created, by conserving energy and water, and by ensuring that endangered wildlife and environmentally compromised areas are treated with respect.

We always strive to be as environmentally friendly as possible. Where possible we encourage our travelers to use public transportation, which also adds to the cultural experience. When we do need to use private transport we use modern fleets, which are more energy efficient and emit less CO2.

Cultural engagement and exchange is central to our company ethos, as each trip is a unique mixture of adventure, culture, and philanthropy. We maintain that one only gets to truly know a place by getting to know its people. Volunteer days of the trip are guided by our voluntourism policies developed by ABTA voluntourism guidelines.

We support local efforts of sustainability by staying at eco-lodges and homestays during the trip.

Community

We have decided to partner up with Habitat for Humanity in Borneo in order to transform the lives of the local community by creating safe, secure and affordable homes.

Volunteer with Habitat for Humanity to make home ownership a reality for families in Borneo. You’ll see first hand how much you can improve the lives of a local community in just a few days. These simple houses, complete with access to clean water and sanitation facilities, will provide the families stability and opportunity. Experience their way of life and get a "back stage pass" to life in Borneo.

Why have we chosen to support this project?

In South East Asia, the population is growing at a rapid pace, estimating 2.6 billion of people by 2030. This in simple words means that not everybody will be able to live in the main cities, in fact the majority will need to live in rural undeveloped area, such as those that we support. We believe that providing liveable houses in these communities is the first step to a better life, opening the doors to improved health, better performance in school, greater economic opportunities, and increased community cohesion.

Help us to support this project by visiting this community, volunteering and getting involved or by simply by donating to this cause.
