Responsible Travel

1) We provide long-term economic benefits to local people. Our responsible travel aims to achieve a measurable reduction in poverty among local communities. By employing local people in tourism, staying in locally-owned accommodations, and putting money directly into the pockets of local communities, the economy is strengthened overall. Tourism can also stimulate local business growth and generate investment in infrastructure where it’s needed.

2) We provide long-term social and cultural benefits to local people. Tourism should positively influence international understanding and respect for local traditions, customs, and values. Tourists should act sensitively and respectfully towards local people and help to strengthen natural heritage. 

3) We work with local and International NGOs that conserves and protects wildlife, biodiversity, and the environment. Tourist activity should not cause negative consequences for wildlife or the environment. This can be as simple as taking litter away, sticking to marked hiking trails, and not participating in animal tourism, such as swimming with dolphins or riding elephants.
