Responsible tourism: Volunteer and travel in Sri Lanka

Environment

Our tour in Sri Lanka is designed to immerse you in a different culture and living with local people. We source and find accommodation which is low impact to the environment. We prefer locally run hotels as opposed to hotel chains and also have an eco lodge as part of the program where you will be living in a lodge that is made from bamboos and running on solar power.

Though we use private transport rather than public transport. We include train rides as well on this tour.

For our safari we ensure that no animal is touched and participants are strictly monitored to not throw rubbish in the national park of Yala.

On arrival you will be given training on how to keep your travels environmentally friendly and to stay safe.

We also have set dates for travel so that the impact on the environment is minimised by group services for transportation.

Our local team in Sri Lanka make sure that local environment benefit too by conducting activities like a beach clean up in Galle every week. Our head office in Galle is also equipped with recycling facilities to seperate out plastic, paper and glass and we encourage these habits with our clients as well.

Community

We work with local guides who from the local area and who will know the area really well. We also work with local wildlife rangers as well a wildlife guides during the safari element of the tour. We always pay any guides and drivers fair rates or higher. We also encourage all our clients to give tips to our local guides who are giving them service with a smile.

You will meet ordinary local people on this tour and we try and enable this wherever possible.

We support local projects wherever possible. In Galle where our office is based we also operate our own community center that caters to children and women's education specifically. Some of the proceeds from this tour are directed towards this center to enable us to purchase computers, library books and educational resources for the rural children and women living in the Galle region.

We give you training on culture and dos and donts in the community you will be travelling to. All participants are given guidelines on applying. Immersive cultural activities such as temple visits are also encouraged to get to know the local community better.
