Responsible tourism: Elephant holiday in Nepal

Environment

As one of the pioneering companies in Nepal, we have demonstrated a commitment to sustainable travel and responsible tourism for more than fifty years. In addition to supporting a wide range of local programs, we have created several conservation and wildlife projects throughout Nepal. The work we do with elephants is but the latest example of our pioneering endeavors in Nepal.

The Elephant Camp is the first and so far only place in the Nepal to stop offering elephant back safaris, and completely changing the way of managing resident elephants. Teaming up with founder of Elephant Aid International, Carol Buckley, the company has built five spacious enclosures for the eleven elephants in their care, who are now living together in their natural friendship groups. As our guest, you are invited to step in to the lives of the elephants and to experience the life of the mahouts and their culture and traditions. Here you will experience the elephants’ natural rhythm and you will learn mainly by observing and engaging with the mahouts´ daily work. We have been recommended by Elephant Watch Nepal and Animal Nepal for travelers who are seeking an authentic and responsible experience with elephants.

Community

To support the community surrounding our operations we provide a free health clinic and support children´s education. We see this as a win-win situation, because the support of the local community is crucial to the sustainability of our company.

Therefore, we have a small health clinic on our premises, where the villagers come for free once a month for their health check-up. For any emergency cases, we provide our vehicle for ambulance drives and we have key staffs who are medically trained and care for both our guests and community members.

We support hundreds of children in surrounding communities through the provision of scholarships, textbooks, uniforms and staff training. We engage meaningfully with the community to ensure education programs are sustainable.

An example of this is on the premises of the lodge in Chitwan, where we run a school as a joint project with the Swissair Staff Fund for Children in Need. It offers a free head start for children from disadvantaged families, and funding for their onward education in government schools. The school currently has fifty-five students from the surrounding villages. The programme covers health care, two meals/day, uniforms, and supplies. In return, the parents work in the school’s organic garden to grow vegetables for the children’s meals, giving them a sense of involvement and a new skill they can use at home to improve family nutrition.
