Travelling with a local operator

This holiday is operated by a company based in the holiday destination and they will be able to provide expert local knowledge. They will be able to tailor make your holiday to suit your requirements not only concerning the dates of travel but also typically the standard of accommodation, and thus price. It is rare for local operators to be able to help with the booking of your flights.

Responsible tourism: Chitwan jungle safari and home stay

Environment

We are a Nepali company and travel through this company makes a direct impact in the economy of Nepal. We also try to maximise its contribution to the local economy by hiring local guides and porters for these trips and staying in smaller lodges to spread the income.

The company does not vertically integrate and sub-contracts all support activities like transportation, lodging etc. so that the money gets spread in the economy. It conserves on paper minimising paperwork in the office and by giving out electronic brochures. When required, brochures are printed on both sides of the paper and are in a folder format so that only relevant inserts need be given.

We also have in place a development support system whereby 10% of its profits go to charities like the Joy Foundation Nepal who conduct free cataract eye camps in rural areas of Nepal and Antardristi Nepal, which is developing a fund to start an incest and rape care centre for minors. 10% of the company's profits also goes directly into employee benefits.

In the field, guides, porters and clients are all oriented in responsible travel. A zero litter policy is in place so that it minimises wastage in the region. We also only take out very small groups with a maximum of twelve participants per group. All trips also focus on culture.

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


The close up encounter with Elephants during the bird watching walk, where they were charging back after breakfast.

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


The option to stay in Chitwan National park is no longer available and staying on the outskirts may be slightly different to what was expected. Be careful where you get booked onto with the whitewater rafting as if water levels are low it can be a disappointing experience.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, and minimized impacts on the environment?


Yes. At Chitwan the hotel was committed to a school as well as educating adults.

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


The trekking in Nepal was fabulous as was our stay in the Royal Chitwan national park. It's hard to say which was better - I feel that the trip was really balanced. The people in the company took great care of us and I'm really looking forward to going back to Nepal.

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


Book with this operator. I can't recommend them highly enough. Learn a few phrases in the local language.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, and minimized impacts on the environment?


I think it did benefit the local people. We were on a trek that's only a few years old so it hasn't been overcome with tourists.

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


10 out of 10

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


I enjoyed the whole trip, both the 3-day homestay trek and the time in Chitwan National Park.

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


Highly recommended trip but be prepared to deal with it being very hot (at least in May when I was there). If you like a bit of comfort food when you trek, take it with you.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, and minimized impacts on the environment?


Yes.

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


Excellent, really well organised and I was well looked after.
