Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Madagascar family adventure holiday

Environment

Our local agent on this trip, Gilles and his team will give you a personal and knowledgeable insight of the region. Gilles is very active in reforestation and since 2008 has raised funds for over 1/2 million trees to be planted. For every client booked on any Madagascar trips, we finance one tree per day per client with Wood En Stock. We have just received our certificate that in 2010 our trips (many of these through rt.com) funded the planting of 400 trees. We will be visiting the reforestation project in May 2011 and will be looking at ways that we can increase our support even further.

By supporting the conservation of the rainforest, we can encourage the authorities to recognise the potential of wildlife tourism and photographic safaris, ensuring the protection of this unique environment. You will be issued with instructions as to how you can help to preserve the environment and we hope that you will follow our advice to help make a difference.

Community

Our local staff accompanying this expedition will give you a real sense of Madagascan culture. We pay all staff fair wages and treat everybody on the trip, including staff, with equal respect and we expect you to do the same. It is principally wildlife tourism that brings people to Madagascar and by using local businesses and services we can inject much needed capital into the local economy. On this expedition we are following a responsible camping procedure which leaves no negative evidence of our presence. We stay in small towns and villages interacting with the locals.

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


Hearing Indri lemurs call out to each other in the forest, and then seeing them above our heads!

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


Be relaxed - sometimes you will see things, sometimes not - the national parks are not zoos. Be prepared - sometime there will be no electricty, usually there willbe no wifi, no clothes washing facilities unless you do it yourself in the shower....Madagascar is a very poor developing country, you can't expect things like at home, but keepan open mind and enjoy the differenece

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


The guides and drivers were all Madagascan so benefited from employment, we only had one or 2 meals in "local" restaurants, which were in fact very good, that could have been increased.

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


An excellent combination of nature tourism and adventure and relaxing, difficult for such a mixed group (aged from 9 to 76) but successful!
