Ethiopia walking tour
Description of Ethiopia walking tour
This trip can be tailor made throughout the year to suit your requirements
We cater for both vegetarians and vegans.
As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) holiday so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.
PlanetWe want our customers to enjoy an experience led holiday within a natural environment. To do this we use partners and suppliers who are guardians of their surroundings. This means that they look after the local environment they are responsible for, as well as encouraging employment, and revenue generation, for the local population.
Where we can, we use partners that adhere to sustainability practises. Due to the location of a lot of our partners they actively look to minimise energy and water usage.
On all our trips customers are encouraged to use reusable water bottles to protect the local environment.
The use of National Parks within our itineraries is widespread, with all park fees going directly to the local authorities responsible for maintaining and protecting the and flora and fauna within the parks. On this trip you'll be accompanied by a trained, specialist guide who is an expert on the wildlife you'll encounter on this trip. The guide will make sure that the wildlife remain undisturbed and unaffected by your visit.
PeopleWe align ourselves with partners who actively work with the local communities, whether this means that they are employing the local population, involved in conservation efforts within the community, or educating the local population with an aim to encourage them to look after their environment.
Wherever we can, and especially when our customers request it, we include visits to community projects, and local villages so that our customers can interact with the local population, and if the local village/tribe so wish, they have the opportunity to sell locally made crafts. On this trip customers will have the chance to do a TESFA Community Village Home Stays stay in the Tigray region (nearest airport Mekelle),
Pre-travel all of our customers are presented with what we call a ‘travel pack’. Within this travel pack our customers receive all the detail about their trip. The detail includes useful information on the destinations they are travelling to, including, but not limited to, the social and political situations within the destination. We also give guidelines on what to pack to try and minimise the amount of luggage our customers take resulting in lower fuel usage on planes and other vehicles.
