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
We love our planet. Our philosophy is that the holiday you take shouldn’t be at the cost of the environment. A commitment to responsible and sustainable tourism is part of our DNA and your holiday will be designed. Our local partners are very well informed about the standards we have set, and we ensure that they closely adhere to them. Our responsible tourism promise aims to ‘create better places for people to live in, and better places to visit’. Our specialist team designs each and every holiday with responsible and ethical tourism approach. We give many opportunities for our clients to ‘real’ experiences. Environment and sustainability is high on our list of concerns. We take pride in the achievement of a healthy balance between environment, local people and YOU, the tourist. To ensure environmental awareness of our clients we provide them with detailed environmental information about places they visit, and how they can help. Visits to nature reserves and national parks are popular among holidaymakers to Mauritius. We give instructions to both our clients and guides on how to minimise impact on environment disturbance to the wildlife., for example visiting Black River Gorges National Park.

During this tour you will visit to one of the worlds oldest gardens The Pamplemousses Gardens.This 60-acre state first belonged to the French governor Labournaiss when he bought a magnificent house in these grounds which he called Chateau Mon Plaisir, an imposing mansion of charming colonial beauty bout wildlife spread awareness of environmental problems, including declining of animal species. When people are aware of these problems, they are tenting to care more about the environment. When visiting protected area, we inform our clients to respect the environment and to ensure minimum impact.

We ensure that the hotels that we choosing for our holidays are doing something good for the environment, from recycling through growing their own fruits and vegetables to using solar power. These practices reduce impact on the environment. Our clients are informed of how they can contribute to protect environment financially or if they would like to get involved in some local projects.
