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
Our partner on the ground in Borneo has been chosen for their strong focus on conservation and their desire to ensure that travellers to Sabah are engage in their destination. Clients are encouraged to visit the network of conservation projects that they have curated. Whilst we always encourage our clients to observe wildlife in their natural surroundings, in the case of Borneo we suggest visiting various sanctuaries which rehabilitate orangutan, and sun bears whose natural habitats have been destroyed by logging for the palm oil trade; a vital environmental issue facing Borneo. Responsible travel is at the heart of what both we and our local partner do. We will only work with accommodation, guides and activity providers who are equally concerned with environmental conservation. This applies to eco-friendly accommodation, preservation of the environment and conservation of wildlife.

All clients are given a reuseable water bottle on arrival which they can re-fill throughout their trip, as we recognise the huge issue of plastic pollution on the beaches.
Community

The Impacts of this Trip

We recognise that it is impossible to travel responsibly and conserve the environments that we venture to, without also engaging with and supporting the local community. We work with a local company which only operates in Sabah, where all of our Malaysia Borneo safaris travel to. Their guides are all born and raised in Malaysian Borneo and since 2015 they have also run a ‘GIVE BACK’ scheme which aims to empower local communities through community-based tourism.

This involves advocating the preservation of local cultures and supports local communities to start their own small-scale tourism ventures, not only do the communities benefit from developing their own tourism programs, but it also gives clients an authentic insight into the local culture, with opportunities to make long-term contributions.

These initiatives are particularly important in rural communities which have previously relied on harvesting natural resources to make money, providing alternatives which not just benefit them financially, but also in turn ensure the preservation of the unique flora and fauna which Borneo is famous for.
