Responsible tourism: Zanzibar beach holiday

Environment

We use hotels that have strict environmental standards and are always striving to improve in this area. Our selection criteria for accommodations on our holidays is guided by style and sustainability.

We encourage you to visit various environmental initiatives including the Mnarani Turtle Sanctuary, and Jozani Chwaka National Park, one of the last remaining sanctuaries in the world of the Red Colobus monkey.

In our detailed pre-departure travel pack we have included a note to remind you not leave any litter in the national parks and reserves – everything you carry in, you must carry out. Aside from the environmental damage, litter can be harmful to the wildlife.

Our UK office takes a leading role in setting the standards for an environmentally friendly work environment. We work with local government to recycle our waste and continually look for new ways to be greener, including encouraging travellers to bring reusable water bottles on their holiday.

Community

Cultural tours, such as the spice plantation tour, are designed so that they mutually benefit the community and the curious traveller. We encourage you to be proactive and respectful when engaging in such activities. We also remind you to please always ask permission before taking photographs of other people.

We employ local guides and support staff who we pay fair wages, often exceeding government standards which we still consider too low, and thereby remove the reliance on tipping from travellers for livelihoods.

Our accommodation choices make use of locally owned properties where possible and often include adventurous, authentic choices such as local homestays which therefore involve local people and their communities in the very fabric of our holidays.

We encourage all our travellers to research local customs and read your trip notes before you depart to ensure you are conscientious and respectful in a different culture.

In most cases we strongly recommend that you do not give money to children beggars. If begging is a successful enterprise, parents are encouraged to forsake their children’s education in pursuit of this opportunity.

Talk to us about packing for a purpose and see if you can get involved by making a small material contribution to the communities you are visiting. We have developed partnerships with charities and accommodations throughout Tanzania and are constantly working to extend our reach with the help of our travellers.
