Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Madagascar cycling tour, highlands to east coast

Environment

We try to support understanding, appreciation and conservation of the cultures and environments we visit. We run our tours in a socially and environmentally responsible way. We run mainly cycling tours, which is a good way to explore without affecting the environment in a negative way. As such, we organise our routes carefully and ensure that we tread lightly.

We try to make sure that the negative impact of our tours on the natural environment is minimised. Therefore, we limit the number of riders on our tours. Where possible, we try making sure that our environmental effect is positive.

We are efficient in the use of natural resources. Minimum impact to toilets, rubbish, the use of soaps, firewood, water, fuel and other items that can negatively impact the environment.

Whenever possible, we use accommodations that are not wasteful of local resources or destructive to the environment. We leave the campsites we use in same or better condition than we found it. Where possible we use established, locally owned and run campsites.

Our tours are appropriate to Malagasy conditions. Our group sizes are regulated to minimise cultural and environmental impact.

Wildlife watching is an art because it requires creativity, enthusiasm, love for all living things and a lot of patience. Our Tour Managers will advise you on the best way to observe wildlife inside and outside the parks.

Community

We are a Tour operator company based in Antsirabe, Madagascar and we live in the country. Therefore, all benefits stay in Madagascar.

We work with Malagasy people where possible at all levels. Our Malagasy tour managers and staff benefit regular appropriate training in First Aid, hygiene, guiding and many more subjects. This creates jobs and gives families social security.
Our staff are permanently employed, they benefit from health and social insurance. They get holidays according to the regulations in Madagascar.

We use Malagasy run businesses and Malagasy services wherever possible. We use Malagasy run hotels, lodges to stay, and Malagasy shops to buy from.

We ensure benefits for local communities. For nutrition and food that we provide on our tours, we buy local products in small shops and market places.

We respect local cultures and customs.

We try to prepare our travellers by providing information in order to minimise their cultural and environmental impact. Our riders learn about Fady (taboo), the way to respect those as well as about the history and the meaning to make sure a better understanding of the Malagasy people. They learn about the way of life in Madagascar which helps ensure interactions are of a positive nature when they are travelling.
