Responsible Travel

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) holiday so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.

Planet and people

We are a local cooperative which owns and manages its own cloudforest reserve and ecolodge. Ecotourism provides us with a sustainable alternative to forest clearance and hunting while allowing us to conserve our forest. Our ecotourism operation requires a constant and careful presence within the forest which more effectively protects the forest from land invasion than the Protected Forest laws alone. (Land invasion occurs in neighbouring cooperatives´ land which has been abandoned by their owners.)

Very much a part of our local community, we provide placements for young people in the area, buy from local families where possible and through our volunteering programme work with children in the town of Nanegal. Scientists from Earthwatch carry out research in the reserve and we have a ‘camera trapping’ project to monitor large mammals.

This holiday is part of the responsibletravel.com and Conservation International Community Based Tourism Programme to support and promote community based tourism ventures that offer significant conservation and development benefits to local communities.
