A key element in the creation of Wayfairer is to bring the economic opportunity of tourism to local communities in the destinations we have come to love through our own travel experiences. We work with carefully selected local partners who share our responsible travel philosophy and this ensures that local people directly benefit from travelling with Wayfairer.
We offset the carbon emissions from all our holidays by planting trees locally through Carbon Tanzania in Africa and through Plant a Tree Today Foundation in Asia. We do this out of our profits and therefore at no extra cost to our customers. The money raised for these two charities through the carbon credits we purchase turns CO2 emissions directly into natural forest.
At Wayfairer we engage local communities in our travel itineraries and treat local people as stakeholders in our business. This manifests itself in our community tourism initiatives, which can be found across our range of experiences.
