Responsible tourism

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we screen every trip so you can travel knowing your holiday will help support conservation and local people.

Environment
All of our tours and excursions are non-motorized, proposing eco-conscious alternatives to commercial boat trips and day-tours by car; we bring our travelers on offbeat adventures to discover Mauritius' secret gems by sea-kayaking, mountain biking, walking tours and hikes.

Our tours and excursions happen either in exclusivity or in small groups of
maximum 6 people, to minimize the impact on the environment while maximizing safety and interaction with local guides.

We are committed to defend animal welfare, discarding activities that deprive animals from their natural rights or are invasive to their natural habitats, such as:
- the walk with lions and the crocodile park
- the overcrowded "swim with dolphins"
- the underwater walk and submarine, which damage greatly the coral reef

Our hikes & treks excursions include individual cleaning kits (in collaboration with "My Green Trip" NGO) for travelers to proactively help us clean-up debris left behind in nature. When possible, the collected trash is deposited in the segregated bins of "Mission Verte" local NGO for recycling purposes.

All of our nature-based excursions aim to raise awareness of the places' flora and fauna and its relevance to the natural and social environments, ranging from rainforest (Ebony forest) to coral reefs (snorkeling) and beach & coastal forests (various treks).
Community

The Impacts of this Trip

We are committed to offer authentic holiday products with a direct link to Mauritian culture, heritage or history.

We support & empower small to medium businesses, set up independently and run by the local community, such as the two family-run Guest Houses and the two locally owned Eco-Lodges in this itinerary.

All of our tours and excursions are led by certified and licensed local guides from the areas visited.

We empower directly a women-led company that leaks money from their cultural immersions to the vanishing traditions of Mauritius. In this case, the old trades and artisans of Port Louis during your treasure hunt. Your contribution to this tour supports and preserves our cultural heritage.

Travelers are advised, before their cultural immersions, of the cultural norms, dress codes and formalities to follow to act respectfully within places of worship or ethnic minorities.

Our itinerary includes a the stay in a small village (Guest House on the West) to buy authentic and handmade souvenirs, eco-conscious crafts and fair-trade products.

Our local team will be in touch with you via WhatsApp to advise you on our favorite family-run Restaurants to eat authentic Mauritian meals, as well as farms and markets to buy local organic produce.
