Check dates, prices & availability
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.
Recognised as a Green Travel Leader, Advanced Eco-Accredited Operator and Climate Change Innovator by Eco-Tourism Australia, now we are going even further, taking a regenerative approach to all our business operations to use our tourism business as a force for good to help tackle the current global crises.
Our mission is "conservation through exploration: protecting our planet by inspiring travellers, supporting local communities and boldly influencing the entire travel industry".
Our Director is recognised by Tourism Australia as a Sustainability Hero. From 2008 to 2021, he planted 1.2 hectares of native vegetation on his then property on the Eyre Peninsula.
ENVIRONMENT AND WILDLIFE
We partner with many organisations across our regions, such as the Department for Environment & Water (DEW), with our passengers doing koala counts at Mikkira Station as a citizen science project. As well as Parks South Australia for beach clean-ups and Eyre Native Seeds for tree planting.
Example of initiatives on our adventure tours;
• All adventure tours have a conservation volunteering activity, i.e., beach clean-ups, tree planting or helping at a wildlife rescue organisation.
• We recycle on tour.
• We organise and provide transport for community clean-ups.
• We educate passengers through our communications on and off tour.
• We purchase locally in the regions we are travelling.
Passengers on this tour will visit various conservation and national parks on the Island, such as Flinders Chase National Park and Seal Bay. They will also participate in meaningful conservation work and citizen science projects and learn about recovery and regeneration after the bushfires. They will meet like-minded travellers, embark on magical hikes, snorkel in turquoise waters and sleep under billions of stars in swags.
We have partnered with Flinders University Adelaide on the Kangaroo Island Passport 2 Recovery citizen science program, with passengers sent a survey to complete before and after the tour. They will also receive the passport booklet and be able to stay connected with the program well after the tour.
Our partnerships with Parks SA, Hansons Bay Wildlife Sanctuary and other grassroots organisations are key to the education of our travellers. Passengers will be doing the guided tour at Seal Bay Conservation with the National Parks & Wildlife Service, as well as other organised conservation work with Parks SA.
We engage and share knowledge with our travellers in many ways, both on our tours and pre and post-the core experience. We continuously share the message of regenerative tourism and educate stakeholders, hoping to influence them about sustainable lifestyle choices.
Our experienced Storyteller Guides are passionate people who share their expert knowledge on the flora, fauna, history, culture and interesting facts of the regions we travel to, and this is no exception for Kangaroo Island.
On this tour specifically;
* We use a number of Kangaroo Island suppliers.
* We only work with suppliers and venues that have regenerative principles like us.
* We purchase food for the tour in the region and always give preference to local fresh produce from farmgates and small local businesses.
