Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Papua New Guinea small group tour

Environment

We have a strict environmental policy to make sure that the environments we visit are not damaged in any way. Our “Leave No Trace” ethic is applied to each one of our trips, and as a responsible tour operator, it is something we are careful and steadfast about promoting. Each one of our guides are trained to uphold, promote and put into practice such responsible behaviour, especially in wilderness areas or whilst traveling to UNESCO heritage sites, which many of our trips undoubtedly do. We have a strict no plastic bottle waste policy.

We attempt to reduce plastic bottle use wherever possible by promoting use of reusable and filtered water bottles. Our partnership with Water-To-Go provides a discount on filtered water bottles to our clients. We do not provide water from plastic bottles to our clients in country but always ensure there is regular access to drinking water on our tours.

By keeping the group size to a maximum of 12, we can also minimise the human impact on the fragile sites and ecosystems we visit.

On this particular tour, we will be stay in a village homestay. These accommodations are family run and are low emission. We ensure to promote staying in accommodations that contribute to the local economy of the region.

When you take one of our tours, me make a contribution to ‘Carbon Clear’ – an organisation devoted to ‘offsetting’ or ‘neutralising’ harmful greenhouse gas emissions caused by your flights. This is done by funding projects across the world that will reduce greenhouse gases on our behalf through sustainable energy or rain forestation.

Community

The wonderful thing about this kind of interactive tourism is that everyone gains – the tribes financially and us with the wonderful welcome and experience they give us. On this trip, we will be lucky enough to witness the Goroka festival. This is the longest running annual tribal gathering and cultural festival in Papua New Guinea hosted in Goroka, Capital of the Eastern Highlands Province. More than 100 tribes participate in the event performing extraordinary displays of 'singsings' - traditional songs, dances and ritual performances providing a dazzling array of colour and energy that showcases the diversity of this fabulous island.

Wherever possible we stay in locally owned accommodation, eat in locally owned establishments and purchase supplies from the local nomads.
Responsible travel and sustainable tourism are fundamental ideas that we have been committed to since our conception. It is part of our core sets of beliefs that these words are not simply scattered nonchalantly into our literature and on our website but moreover that they are central to each and every trip. Our adventures are therefore carefully curated celebrating all that is local from the people, to the culture. We believe that a successful trip delivers a unique and authentic journey for our clients, but furthermore benefits the people whose land we have the privilege of encountering.

On each group tour we use local ground handlers. This means that all operational costs go directly into the local economy and help improve employment opportunities in remote regions. Such support can also be seen in our incorporation of homestays, locally owned hotels, family run restaurants and the services of local guides and drivers into our itineraries, which ensures that the money you spend with us goes directly into the local economy and local community.
