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
All of our group tours are kept to a maximum size of 12, in order to minimise the human impact on the fragile sites and ecosystems we visit.

We attempt to reduce plastic bottle use wherever possible by promoting use of reusable and filtered water bottles. Our partnership with Water-To-Go provides a discount on filtered water bottles to our clients. We do not provide water from plastic bottles to our clients in country but always ensure there is regular access to drinking water on our tours.

Throughout most of the trip we will be travelling in minibuses. Travelling as a group in a small bus contributes less pollution than a multitude of vehicles. We will also be exploring many areas on foot, by kayak, by raft and boats, to not only soak up the amazing sights at a slower pace, but to reduce our environmental impact and footprint along our journey.

The trip incorporates non-motorised ways of exploring the country such as on foot or via kayak which not only gives you a slower paced experience, but also cuts environmental damage and tourist carbon footprint.

Slower travel also allows for more chances to interact with people from another culture.

The Impacts of this Trip

Throughout the tour we stay in a number of family-run hotels which helps the owners provide good, clean and interesting accommodation allowing them to generate income to educate their children, improve their standard of living and look after their ill. The wonderful thing about this kind of interactive tourism is that everyone gains the families financially and us with the wonderful welcome and experience they give us. Wherever possible we stay in locally owned accommodation, eat in locally owned establishments and purchase supplies from the local nomads.

On Day 3, we will visit a visit a local potter at work in their home. Visiting artisans not only provides income to them via selling their goods, but also ensures they are able to continue their craft and pass it onto the next generations.

On each Group tour we use local ground handlers. This means that all operational costs go directly into the local economy and help improve employment opportunities in remote regions. Such support can also be seen in our incorporation of homestays, locally owned hotels, family run restaurants and the services of local guides and drivers into our itineraries, which ensures that the money you spend with us goes directly into the local economy and local community.
