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
The tour offers participants an understanding of the cultural, social and economic diversity of Ivory Coast as well the hospitality of local people.
We work hard to ensure positive impacts to the local communities and surroundings that we encounter, and encourage travelers to contribute items that are inexpensive and easy to pack such as pens for children in schools and recycled clothing.
We spend time visiting some of the most remote communities in this tour and we place a great emphasis on treading sensitively. Where possible we purchase supplies along the way, this makes a significant input into the local economy of villages which otherwise have little opportunity to trade.
Additionally, we with hotels and guest houses to implement best practices when it comes to environmental matters. We visit these hotels along with our local team to give a presentation on environmental concerns and assist them when setting up solar panels as well as turning off lights and electrical appliances that are not being used.
Travelers on this trip are not allowed to litter the environment but are rather encouraged to sensitize the visited communities on environmental protection issues such as recycling of waste materials.
