Our local staff in Bahariya and the White Desert co-operate with the government to annually clean the areas used as camps for tourists so all tour guides are responsible for ensuring that the guests understand the nature of the environment that they are in and minimise the impact that they may have. Most employees are local people and most food whilst camping is locally sourced. Our guides always urge clients to take care of water and energy conservation.
Moreover, at all historical sites in Egypt part of the fees contribute to conservation. For example, there is local staff for cleaning at these sites taking their salaries from those fees. During this program, clients will have the ability to deal directly with Bedouin people during their stay at camp and during their visit to the historical places in the oases, and get to know their habits and customs. We will provide our clients with a copy of our responsible travel policy upon arrival at Cairo Airport. We offer our clients the chance to visit a charitable organisation like Masr Al Mahrusa Baladi. This NGO tries to improve the quality of education in Egypt at governmental schools, especially primary schools, and takes care of genius students at governmental schools. Also, the organisation helps in wiping out illiteracy, in addition to bringing up and educating orphans. We send information on climate, customs, traditions and clothes to clients by e-mail after confirming their reservation.
You can trust responsibletravel.com reviews because, unlike many other schemes, reviews can ONLY be written by people who we have verified have been on the holidays. In addition, we don't run these holidays ourselves - our only interest is giving you the best independent advice.
