Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Brazil family holiday

Environment

We have numerous opportunities on this trip to visit important heritage and conservation sites, in the company of fully trained local guides and conservationists who help to educate guests on the best and most responsible way to travel. The Amazon, for example, is famed for its biodiversity. We use local guides from the area to discover the surrounding nature and landscapes. The guides are so important to our tours as they can help us understand the struggles that these areas go through to maintain their natural habitats, during out time in the Amazon we will undertake a full day learning about how local tribes interact in harmony with the forest around them.

Given the distances travelled on this trip, we do have a carbon footprint through flight emissions. This means that when we land in our destinations, we try and travel as environmentally aware as possible – for example in places like Iguazu and the Amazon, our excursions will take place on foot and by boat, which not only allows us to travel more sensitively but also gets us further off the beaten track and closer to nature.

As a travel company we are continually looking for ways to improve and are proud to be ‘Responsible in everything we do’. Education is key, and so all staff, Tour Leaders and partnering suppliers are trained in responsible and sustainable tourism. At our Head Office, we continually strive towards a sustainable and planet-friendly working environment, including having solar panels installed and a company commitment to reducing our plastic usage.

Community

Using internal flights is a necessity to get around Brazil, but to further mitigate this, our Tour Leaders will encourage customers to put money into the local economies that we’re visiting through frequenting small, locally run restaurants and other businesses.

On this trip guests stay in locally owned and run lodges and local guides are hired throughout. This helps to support local people and ensure they have a stake in maintaining this sensitive environment for future generations.

In Praia do Forte we make a stop at the TAMAR sea turtle project. Set up by the Brazilian environmental agency in 1980, the sea turtle project was created to save the turtles form extinction by employing former poachers to help locate, mark and protect nesting sites and helping educate local communities that the turtle population are worth much more alive than dead. Thanks to their efforts poaching levels have been dramatically reduced. Money raised by visiting the project will go towards future conservation efforts.

As a company we have valuable and longstanding partnerships with UK charities Toilet Twinning and Send a Cow, plus many smaller initiatives and projects around the world. We’re members of the UK travel industry body AITO because we believe it’s important to share our knowledge and experience, as well as learn from other operators.
