How the minimum criteria of the responsible travel standard was met...

Economic responsibility

The objective is to make wise decisions about how our tourist money is spent to ensure its benefits are spread across local communities rather than to only benefit large hotel chains or even out-of-country suppliers.

• Get off the beaten tracks and away from tourist crowds to help to spread the economic benefit of tourism to places that get less than the tourist hotspots.
• Show preference to locally produced products that support the local communities. Whether you buy food, clothing, souvenirs, or arts and crafts – buy locally produced products rather than imports.
• Support indigenous artisans and try to buy directly from these artists to help them support their families and it helps to preserve their culture.
• Carefully select tour operators who give back to the local communities, who hire local guides and take a leading role in preserving the area’s natural resources and cultural heritage.
• Give more than you take from the local communities you visit and take photos of. This can include signing up for volunteer work, sharing your culture, sharing your tourist money, and just sharing your good heart and respectful behaviour.

Environmental responsibility

The objective here is to protect the environment. Think about “green tourism” and “eco-friendly” tourism.
• When snorkelling or scuba diving, don’t touch or step on the corals or unnecessarily stir up sedi-ment as it damages the reef’s fragile ecosystem.
• When hiking, stay on the marked trails to avoid harming the native fauna and flora.
• When hiking, bring along a small reusable bag and pick up any trash we spot along our hike. If no-body picks up the trash, then let us hikers pick it up and stop passing the bucket to someone behind us.
• When doing grocery shopping, be an example to the shoppers around us and bring along a reusable bag for our purchases. Plastic bags are so harmful to the environment and should be phased out.
• Travel with small group tour operators as they tend to have less of an environmental impact.
• Insist on visiting wild animals in their natural habitat or in well-managed animal sanctuaries rather than visiting animal parks where tamed wild animals are used for tourist entertainment such as playing football in front of a paying crowd. Never go on elephant rides. Never!
• Avoid any wildlife tours that promise close encounters or hands-on encounters with animals. Choose tour operators that don’t disturb wildlife. This means: Do not ride on elephants, do not get in the enclosures of tigers to walk and pat them.
• Never feed wildlife for any reason. Feeding wild animals make them habituated to, and reliant, on humans and may lead to attacks and likely the subsequent putting down of the animal.
• Keep a respectful distance from wildlife. If you are close enough to attract a wild animal’s atten-tion then it means you are way too close.
• Don’t buy anything made from endangered plants or animals, and that includes buying anything made of unsustainable hardwood forests and ancient artefacts.
• Do not buy souvenir photos from anyone exploiting wildlife such as performing bears or elephants. Never have your photo taken by someone with a performing monkey or snake or any wild animal. Never support anyone using these animals as a means of income.

Social responsibility

Tourism can have a profound impact on local culture and lifestyles. The objective is to leave only positive influences on the local people with little, or no change, to their way of life.
• Don’t support any businesses who solely cater to tourists (in particular foreign tourists) as over time such businesses will take over the retail landscape of the local community and have a significant impact on the local community.
• Support local artists and do not buy from vendors who peddle tacky souvenirs made in foreign countries.
• Support restaurants who prepare local cuisines rather than those who offer foreign food that some tourists may prefer.
• Be open minded and foster a more engaging travel experience by respecting the local cultures and traditions regardless of how different they may be from what you are used to. Embrace our differ-ences so you encourage others to hold on to what makes them unique.
• Before you arrive, do a little research on the local customs and traditions so that you can talk and behave appropriately. It also helps to learn a few local phrases so you can show your interest in the local language.
• Be very discreet when taking photos of people. If you are taking a close-up portrait, politely ask for permission before taking a photo.
• Have no boundaries to immerse yourself in the local cultures. Part of the travel experience is getting an opportunity to step outside our comfort zone and experience different foods, different music, and different cultures. Never openly show disapproval.

None of the above is difficult to comply with and we know most travellers will have no issues with fol-lowing these objectives during their travels. The choices we make can have a significant impact on the local people today, tomorrow, and in the long term. Lets make smart choices and protect the local people and the environment, while leaving a positive impact on everything and everybody were come across directly or indirectly.
