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
From last few year the accommodation’s that we are using have moved away from using plastic bottles by switching them up with steel ones, saving more than hundred thousand bottles that would have otherwise ended up in a landfill. So they have also done away with single-use plastic completely as travellers will notice during their stay in the lodges. Water and energy conservation has been a long standing commitment that they continue to improve in.

We believe in leaving the natural landscape in its pristine form rather than converting it into manicured lawns. By allowing root stocks to regenerate and supplementing it with additional indigenous plant forms, efforts to re-wild the local habitat have been highly successful. This in-turn has led to an abundance of flora & fauna in the premises including many rare and star species.

Also the money collected from the safaris in Bandhavgarh and Rathambore is directly invested towards the conservation of these wildlife habitat and the animals live there. We do not support the direct encounter with the animals as this is unethical.

The Impacts of this Trip

These lodges that are located in the hinterland of Madhya Pradesh give an opportunity to host people from different parts of the world and introduce them not only to the wildlife but also the local communities that live in the vicinity. The first importance is to maintain a positive social license to operate that allows for a symbiotic relationship with the local people, who with their culture and traditions bring a unique charm to this region and are true bastions of our remaining forests. We recognize the potential that tourism has in uplifting the lives of these people and strive to employ over 80% of this team from amongst these individuals, many of whom hold key managerial positions.

By being located in these far flung places, these lodges attempt to bring the economic benefits of tourism to places that are. Over 70% of the revenue is pumped back into the local economy in the form of salaries, tie-ups with suppliers, vehicle hiring, labor, park fees and taxes. We also rally around supporting regional craft and artifacts by partnering and supporting artisans.
