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
• Minimise plastic usage: Plastic pollution is one of the most unnecessary threats facing our environment. At the beginning of 2018 we launched our ‘One Bottle At A Time’ initiative to replace disposable plastic water bottles with refillable canisters across our destinations. We aim to provide refillable water canisters in our vehicles, meaning our travellers are not generating plastic waste through the daily use of water bottles (which on a full day of touring can be numerable). We also send our guests a wooden toothbrush to help avoid using hotels’ disposable plastic brushes, and educate clients about the limited recycling facilities in Asia, and best-practice regarding waste-reduction. Within our UK offices we operate strict recycling policies and make sure everyone in the office uses reusable crockery and cutlery.

• This itinerary journeys to the islands of Komodo and Rinca which are home to the Komodo Dragon. Whilst these unique creatures are a major tourist attraction, they are a ‘vulnerable’ species. Your visit will be guided by a park ranger to ensure that there is no habitat degradation and that if you encounter a ‘dragon’, it is observed at a safe distance so as not to impact adversely on the animal.
Community

The Impacts of this Trip

• Remote Minority Groups: We are of the staunch opinion that minorities aren’t tourist attractions, any more than children are. All our holidays that take place in and around minority communities are set up with the locals’ best interests at heart and we work with partners who do everything possible to ensure that the entire community benefits from our visits. This Indonesia itinerary travels to the islands of Sumba and Flores, visiting tribal villages where life has remained unchanged for generations. These experiences are an excellent opportunity for clients to immerse themselves in authentic local life, but we are conscious that this does not have a negative impact on the local people and the income generated from these visits directly benefits the whole community.

• Local partners: One of our core values is to collaborate with local, responsible companies and partners who share our focus, beliefs and passions. We actively choose local guides and drivers throughout Indonesia, and work only with local travel partners. We insist that any travel partners we work with adhere to our responsible travel policies, and ideally put responsible tourism at the heart of everything they do.

• This tailor-made itinerary is based on private travel in Indonesia, not in a large group. By travelling in this way we have minimal disruptive impact on the environment and communities visited and are able to stay in smaller, locally owned properties, where possible, that are not suitable for larger coach tours.
