Responsible tourism

Jordan trekking holiday, Dana to Petra

Carbon reduction

Your holiday will help support local people and conservation. We must also reduce CO2. Learn about the CO2 emissions of this holiday and how to reduce them.

Environment

As an intermediary in the tourism industry, we are in the best position to promote new practices and behaviour suitable for sustainable tourism issues. In order to follow sustainable tourism principles; we commit that the experiences we offer help to protect and replenish the environment as well as create wealth and better futures for communities across Jordan.

Out of a love for nature, we are committed to environmental conservation. Thus, we work every day to improve our practices in favour to the current ecological needs.

CONTRIBUTION TO PROTECTED AREAS
As we hike through the Dana Nature Reserve, we generate income for nature conservation with entrance fees. Needless to say, we take care to follow the regulations of the Royal Society Conservation of Nature.

In addition to a maximum group of 14 participants this hike is done entirely on foot, which allows us to minimize our carbon footprint.

WILDLIFE
Our licensed guides are trained to take measures to limit disruption to the ecosystem. In addition, our team strives to show the importance of each animal in the nature’s balance and Jordan’s heritage.

WASTE
To meet the global current ecological challenge, we educate travelers about waste impacts and pollution in Jordan.
During the Dana to Petra hike, we apply a strict waste policy. To continue to enjoy these wild landscapes and in order to meet the current challenge, we have established some measures, such as:

• using reusable water bottles instead plastic ones,
• buying food without additional packaging,
• replacing plastic cutlery by reusable cutlery

WATER
Because of the critical lack of water in Jordan, we work at reducing water consumption in each step of our trek. Ask customers to take short showers, considering they are in an arid area. We educate the customers on the real water value in Jordan and the main issues according to its scarcity. We also conscientiously select our partners, according to their practices.


ANIMALS TREATMENT
We’re aware of the mistreatment of animals in some places of Jordan, that’s why we make sure to conscientiously choose our partners.
As we use some donkeys on this trip, we are particularly concerned about their well-being. Thus, our team always focuses on the needs of animals, whatever they are: water, shade, rest, medical care … Otherwise, we are particularly conscious about donkey situation in Petra. So, in order to follow the Brooke organization for animal treatment guidelines, we ensure that we do not play a role in overloading these animals.

OFFICE
We work on the reduction of paper wastes through the organizations’s ongoing digitization campaign. We have also worked on reducing plastic usage during lunch through a number of measures such as ordering in bulk and using Tupperware rather than single use plastic bags.

Community

Throughout the hike, we use a local guide. We also have local suppliers who have made a career setting up the local camps, make dinner and provide other logistics help. We are hosted in local camps located in the Wadi Rum protected area and Dana Reserve. In this sense, we are able to provide bedouins with income that will be reinvested in the local economy. In addition, most of the food we offer is locally produced. Additionally, an important part of our identity is to pay above-market prices to everyone we work with.

CULTURAL IMPACT
Conscious of our cultural influence, we always provide extensive information before the trip to allow customers to better understand Jordan and the local environment.

Each community has its own tradition and culture, so they should be considered as such. When we bring travelers to these communities, we always use a local guide who is aware of customs, etiquette and the best ways to integrate.
