Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Poland bison safari in the Primeval Forest

Environment

We are a small but growing wildlife watching tour company, made up of several experienced wildlife local guides, fanatic nature lovers, keen photographers and birders. Many are academics, others work in National Parks or nature conservancy NGO’s. All of us share one thing – a great passion and care for wildlife. This way, on our tours we visit the best places and sites for wildlife that most other tours never reach.

For the last 10 years we have worked hard to show European Bison, Elk (Moose), Wolves, Lynx, Beavers, Otters and plenty of rare birds up close in their natural habitat with minimum disturbance. We teach our guests how to do this in the most nature-respectable way. We cooperate with local National Parks, University and a Mammal Research Institute, reporting observations of Wolves, Lynx, Elks and other wildlife of a particular interest at a given time. Moreover, many of our guides actively take part in many current bird surveys and research studies.

Our groups are small, maximum 7 participants thus ensuring a great atmosphere and a more intimate contact with nature.

This tour visits one of Poland’s most valuable National Parks - the Bialowieza Primeval Forest. Apart from tracking and watching wildlife, as usual on our tours we visit a tremendous variety of different habitats and our guides focus on the whole forest ecosystem, explaining its complexity and emphasising the relations among its components. We believe this is the best approach to spread knowledge and help saving the endangered nature of Eastern Europe and in the long run – our planet.

The guesthouses we use recycle their rubbish and use renewable energy sources to supplement - local woodfuel and solar panels. Local wood has always been the most important energy source in these areas while solar panels now become increasingly popular, being subsidised by the EU projects and local governments.

We encourage travellers to bring their own reusable water bottles and flasks for hot drinks out in the wild. We also inform everyone on our policy of minimising water use and production of litter.

Community

This tour is led by a local tour leader who is experienced, environmentally trained and socially aware (and funny :). Furthermore, we will be additionally accompanied by one local guide from local community for certain trips like a local scientist or a researcher for a trip in the Strict Reserve.

Our guides pay attention and explain about local history, culture, customs and especially the historical ethnic minorities that contribute to the specificity of eastern Poland. Of course visiting local nature protection sites is an important part of all our tours and our guides explain the details of nature protection problems as well as conflicts and relations between people and nature in certain areas. We work with several local guides, actively seek for new, dedicated people and educate them about our eco-tourism policy.

During this tour, we stay at a small, wooden family run guesthouses where the hosts are nature friendly and engaged and the atmosphere is always very cosy. They use not only local products (including wild mushrooms and berries) but often grow their own food, too. This ensures local job opportunities in rural areas and provides you with a much more authentic experience of eastern Poland. Mind you - many of our previous customers have reported they had no idea Polish food was so good.

Visiting local communities is an important part of all our tours, we encourage you to chat to locals and buy their local produce and souvenirs whenever possible.
