Libya holidays, tailor made
This trip can be tailor made to create a unique holiday for your individual requirements by travel experts with intimate knowledge of the destination. It is a more individual trip that will suit those who enjoy immersing themselves in new cultures and environments, with the flexibility to plan a trip at your own pace. Quality and value are the hallmark of these trips, with most services being provided on a private basis.
How Libya holidays, tailor made makes a difference
We are one of the few UK tour operators to be awarded AITO’s 5 stars (the most possible) for Responsible Travel in recognition of our Responsible Travel policy. This is extremely important for us and we take Responsible Travel very seriously. In terms of responsible tourism, the Middle East is generally not very advanced, but we advise clients on how to do their bit, from ways to save water, which is such a precious source in Libya, to how to help with the evident litter problem.
Here in the UK offices we try to protect our local environment in every way we can. Composting and recycling schemes are in place, each department has its own allotment in the office grounds, where free range hens roam. We use fair trade tea and coffee and organic fruit is delivered to the office each week. Car sharing to work is encouraged and a bike purchase scheme is available to employees.
We work with a local agent which is 100% Libyan owned, unlike many which are actually partly Italian owned, so we can be certain all the money is going into the local economy. In addition our agent owns guesthouses in key destinations and we use these whenever possible. Again, this means that the money is going directly into the local economy rather than to an overseas owner or to the government.
Libya is a predominantly Muslim and deeply conservative country. It is very important to respect Muslim social custom. Clients travelling to Middle East destinations with us will be given advice on how to dress and guidance on how to behave in public in order to show respect for the Muslim traditions and to avoid causing offence, particularly during the period of Ramadan.
We have strong links with the organisation Friends of Conservation who have a number of projects they work on across the world; their aim is to 'join with local people and partners to support sustainable ways of living in harmony with wildlife, ecosystems and the environment'. We work directly with FOC on two of their projects, one of which is the Bio-gas project in the Masai Mara in Kenya. Each of our departments also supports a chosen charity in its own region and in the Africa Culture department we frequently fund raise and donate to the Hannan School organisation in Morocco.
