As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) holiday so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.
PlanetWe visit Shai Hills Game Reserve to observe the beautiful range of rocky hills sitting in the midst of large wooded grassland. Several cave systems embedded in the hills have played an important role in local history, culture & tradition of the Shai people. The reserve is home to 31 species of mammals more than 175 species of birds, 13 reptiles’ species.
At Shai Hills, endangered animals such as baboons are protected. Herbs ,Shrubs which the indigenes use as traditional medicines are also protected.
Throughout our visits, we make sure that we do not leave anything permanent behind as traces of our tour but rather carry all the litter along as a measure of not polluting the environment thereby ensuring environmental cleanliness to promote sustainable development in tourism.
We support the local conservation effort by the entrance fees we pay which are used to maintain these natural parks and reserves for generations.
PeopleWe set out to explore Africa’s authentic culture in this trip. We visit the Manhyia Palace, official residence of Ashanti Kings (Asantehene) now a museum containing treasured items relating to the Ashanti Kingdom. This helps to impact and inculcate our core cultural beliefs and practices in the youth such as being respectful to elders and the entire environment.
We also visit the woodcarving Village of Ahwiaa, known for the talented craftsmen who fashion Royal stools, walking sticks and Fertility Dolls made of wood from regenerated forest ; with the opportunity to purchase hand carved items of all kinds. The village of Ntonso is where Artisans hand-stamped deep philosophical patterns of Adinkra symbols on cotton cloth to make Adinkra fabrics.
Our travelers learn how the Black Dye is made in the village from the bark of trees and create their own Adinkra sash to take home. Sales of these pieces of the Adinkra Cloth help and improve the living conditions of the indigenes, thereby valuing their activities and thus helping towards their survival.
Again, we employ local guides to explain the history and culture to travelers. This ensure the locals are not left out. We also use accommodation facilities which are locally owned and this helps to put money into the local economy.
