Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Moroccan highlights tour

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 also remind the group of the importance of disposing of waste appropriately.

On this trip we spend one night out in the desert in a traditional Berber style camp. This helps to support the local community, in a wider sense-from the camel owners and guides, to the local food suppliers and cooks. This is of course, the ultimate form of low impact accommodation-there are no taps, lights, heating or air conditioning units to leave on and the tents can be packed up and moved on with minimal impact to the local environment. It also helps to create employment in areas where there is little other form of paid work.

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

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

Local Crafts and Culture

Similarly, we only support local co-operatives for purchasing of local crafts. At Todra Gorge for example, the head of the local carpet making and craft co-operative also shares his knowledge of the Gorge with us and does a short guided walk, before sharing a mint tea with us and talking to us about the co-operative.

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.
