Family tour to Morocco: the story of this holiday company
As the number one provider of family adventures in the UK, this company have been designing and running itineraries for active families with a sense of adventure since the mid 1990s. The premise is simple; small groups of between 3-5 families, fixed itineraries, family friendly activities and accommodation and group leaders with the knowledge and expertise to interact with and inspire every member of the family. Immerse yourselves in local cultures, try traditional foods, meet the local people and most of all, experience the world together. You don’t have to stop travelling just because you have kids, take them with you and give the entire family the holiday of a lifetime!
Responsible tourism: Family tour to Morocco
Responsible mission: As adventure travellers we relish and celebrate the diversity of the world. We also recognise our obligation to protect the environments that we explore. Our aim is to tread lightly, whilst contributing to maintain the world’s culture and nature, and most importantly to engage the help of all our customers to utilise the potential of tourism as a tool to aid sustainable development. We believe that responsible travellers are welcome in the places that they visit.
On this trip: We travel in small groups (max 16 people) so have a minimal impact on the environment as we go. On this trip we use a local agent from Morocco, locally owned hotels, local leaders. Not only does this mean that more of the money we generate stays within the community, but their local knowledge and expertise helps us to better understand the environment in which we are travelling, whilst reinforcing within the local community that preserving this environment is both important and worthwhile
Helping to minimise negative impact: All of our customers are invited to offset their international flight emissions. Contributions go to the Blue Ventures Carbon Offset program, a non-profit organisation which provides solar stoves for subsistence communities in Madagascar, benefiting the people and protecting the environment. We also contribute £2 per person towards offsetting of your in-country travel. We fully offset all emissions from our staff travel and run an energy efficient office.
Giving something back: We have a foundation that collects the funds that you donate to us to support our projects. All our customers are invited to make a £1 per person contribution to the foundation at the time of booking. We will match every contribution that you make with our own £1. You as a customer choose where these funds are used from a shortlist of nominated projects – so it really is YOUR foundation.
Partnerships: As a company we support The Travel Foundation, a UK charity that has been established to promote responsible travel practises throughout the whole of the travel industry. We also work with a number of charity partners who work in the destinations that we visit; including Friends of Conservation and Born Free Foundation. We partner with many small grassroots projects throughout the destinations that we visit - they all share our responsible vision.
We are supporting the Girls Boarding House - Central High Atlas, in the Bougmez valley by donating £2.20 per traveller to Morocco towards this organisation.
By working closely with our local agent we do our best to support and encourage the local schools and projects in all the areas of Morocco you visit. We strongly advise against giving directly to the children in the street as this encourages begging. We prefer to support local well run organisations and projects which are of greater long term benefit.Pax can take pens, pencils, books etc and group leader will assist them in visiting a local school where possible.
