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
Chilika lake is one of the most visited lake in India and hence it is vulnerable to all the perils of tourism like litter and plastic pollution. We inform our guides to educate the guests who indulge in such activities to use bins that have been installed at places. For boat cruise, we use standard government approved vendors who are more environment conscious and follow the guidelines stipulated by government.

One of the hotels chains that we use in Orissa is Mayfair hotels. Mayfair Hotels at Bhubaneswar and Puri are working well towards environment conservation. Mayfair Hotels use an automated system for Water Usage figures and work accordingly to minimize the usage of the same. They use Automated Sensors for all their public and room toilets to minimalize the wastage of water. The hotel specializes in re-using any unwanted items through their Charity Swap shop and even recycles big items like pillows, duvets, and chairs. The hotel calculates its daily gas and electricity consumption through the Conserve Software which helps them to keep an eye on the benchmark targets for the same. The hotels like Mayfair Puri also carry out beach cleaning drives in which they invite staff and try to make a better tomorrow for everyone.

The vehicles used by us during the tours are emission tested as government norms resulting in lesser impact on the environment.

The Impacts of this Trip

We use local guides at all places thus offering local employment. We support guides who are local and passionate about offering unique experiences to the guests.

We work with hotels like Mayfair Bhubaneswar who are helping the local community by procuring the daily goods and items from nearby vicinity. The hotel also works with the local Fish Suppliers and educates and enhances their knowledge regarding sustainable fish. The hotel makes sure that they are using sustainable fish for their hotel throughout the year. Most of the hotels from which we engage the services are following the Farm-to-Table program. In this, they emphasize the usage of the goods which are locally produced. Most of our hotels work closely with the local Non-Governmental Organizations that are working for the upliftment of the underprivileged.

We engage the services of local artisans who readily help us for the better experience of the guest. Although the guides are freelancers in India, we offer them frequent training and feedback so that they can empower themselves to offer better services for future tours. Our drivers too are given necessary allowances so that they are more relaxed during the tour. We employ local guides to offer them employment.
