Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Simien Mountains trekking tour, Ethiopia

We protect the local environment and offer our clients tips on taking a non invasive approach, always removing all signs of our presence and respecting the environment with its vegetation and wildlife. Travellers may keep a record of animal and bird sightings for ongoing listing to be published on the website for other travellers making a positive contribution to the conservation of the wildlife in the locality.

This tour involves the employment of guards, cooks, guides and other locals who will accompany you throughout your trip. You will get to know them very well, living and walking side by side and it will be a unique opportunity to learn about the culture in depth. By employing this group of locals to help you, you are contributing to their income the importance of which cannot be minimised. The average income per household as dropped over the past 10 years from 130 to approx 80 and 64% of Ethiopians live below the poverty line. Inflation is high at the moment and many are struggling.

Clients will be made aware of the various projects in Ethiopia with which we are personally acquainted. These projects are effecting a positive change to the environment by their actions; i.e. tree planting, seed distribution.

This is a responsible tour to choose for a number of reasons. Firstly we only use local guides, educated within Ethiopia. Thereby ensuring employment for local men and women. This tour is culturally sensitive - staying in hotels and campsites run by local people where clients will learn about local environmental, social and cultural issues. You will be encouraged to visit local restaurants and to buy from local shops and markets. This will be made easier for you by the provision of an Ethiopian SIM card or phone with which you can keep in touch with your guide helping you to feel safe to wander.

Ethiopia is pledged to be carbon neutral by 2025. Clients may like to consider offsetting their carbon emissions.
