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.

Though a minimal amount of time is spent within nature during this trip, the itinerary has been crafted to ensure every detail, no matter how small, is as eco-friendly as possible. Our choice to use homestays and small, locally-owned accommodation rather than large hotels where possible has the positive environmental impact of reduced energy expenditure. Similarly, we arrange for our travellers to use eco-friendly means of transportation such as walking or car-sharing, and only use internal flights where strictly necessary and where we have deemed the positives of our responsible travel in rural communities or distant locations outweigh the negative environmental impact.

We ensure our guides are mindful about protecting the environment in which you travel, and they do a fantastic job of promoting having a minimum impact to the environment whilst travelling. We ask you to be vigilant about disposing of your waste and recycle where possible. During your trip you will be asked if you have any waste to dispose of when it is a suitable time in the itinerary. Similarly, we strongly advise all travellers to bring a reusable water bottle - this is an easy way to save plastic waste and is detailed in our ‘What to bring’ trip notes for all trips to all destinations. Your guide will remind you where and when you can fill up your re-usable water bottle.

This tour supports the Ras Al Hadd Sea Turtle Sanctuary. The money tourism brings is vital in the maintaining of this operation, and supports the incredible work the sanctuary does in providing a habitat for nesting and the overall safety of these endangered animals.

The Impacts of this Trip

As regular travellers, one thing that never ceases to amaze and inspire us is the kindness and generosity of local people, often people who have very little to their name. We firmly believe that they are who make these places special should and that they should benefit from our visit. Therefore, as first preference, we use local guides and locally-owned lodges, shops and eateries. We do our best to ensure that the benefits of our tours reach as widely as possible into the communities where they operate.

This itinerary includes a number of stops at local souks and museums, including Ibra’s female-only market; these stop provide further economic support for local traders and the continued preservation and showcasing of Oman’s proud heritage.

We ensure that all of our tour guides, drivers, and handlers are local individuals, offered good working conditions and fair pay. Similarly, we endeavour to use locally purchased supplies, and use local accommodation. We believe these things are of particular importance when travelling in small communities such as those included on this itinerary; we are proud to benefit these communities in any way possible, whether it be through economic growth or any other means. Tourism is a vital and significant source of growth and development both within these remote regions and for Oman as a whole.
