Responsible tourism: Madhya Pradesh tailor made vacation, India

Environment

Jungle Eco-Accommodation
We ensure we always try and use properties such as Bagh Sarai situated next to the Bandavgarh Tiger Park for our travelers to Madhya Pradesh.

We strongly support their style of construction of their guest cottages on the property as we believe that they are done with the local ecology in mind. One of their style of accommodation called the Jhopri are designed to reflect the style of the local tribal village homes. Constructed using four layers, beginning with local thatch, then bamboo, with a structure of raft and wood blocks which is finally lined on the inside with a fine cotton liner, these jhopri cottages are the perfect insulators - being cool in the summer and warm in the cooler winter months in the jungle. With an open design it ensures no energy consumption in the day and with light khaki colours on the outside, it makes these cottages very efficient and in harmony with it's surroundings.

For the more eco-conscious the property also offers plain cotton tented accommodation on the property, setup though with all the basic amenities for a comfortable stay, yet retaining all natural elements of building construction.

Carbon Credit Offsets
We know how polluting long haul flights are to our environment. Hence as travel and experience planners to Sri Lanka, we believe in helping the environment by offsetting these carbon emissions by purchasing Carbon Credits.

A typical long haul flight from Europe to Mumbai generates on average 2.2 to 2.3 tonnes of CO2 emissions for a round trip flight per passenger. In order to offset these damaging emissions, as a Company, we offset this by purchasing Carbon Credits for each of our traveler who travels with us to Madhya Pradesh. Through this endeavor we ensure that we purchase corresponding credits that ensure the offset of the entire 2.3 tonnes per passenger per trip.

These carbon credits purchased in part go towards funding the Indian Farm Forestry Development Cooperative’s initiatives of afforesting wasteland with natural forest trees in the states of Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan & Uttar Pradesh since April 1995.

Community

Local Village staff
We encourage properties such as Bagh Sarai at Bandavgarh because of their policy of using local village staff entirely for their property. Tribal boys and men employed from the local village communities in Bandavgarh today have become long term serving staff on the property who not only have a sense of being empowered but also share a strong sense of responsibility to showcase the Tiger park in a manner that's responsible.

Medical care for the local villages
A portion of the revenue earned from travelers and guest stay on the property initially went toward land purchased for a local dispensary for the villages and tribal communities that are situated near the property. Given the distance to the nearest hospital, the property aided the construction of this local dispensary that is now partly run from the revenue earned.

Tribal artifact Shop
With a local tribal-owned and run shop on the property, we encourage our guests to shop locally for authentic tribal artifacts directly sold by the Tribals on the property. All profits earned from the sale of these artifacts goes directly back to the tribal families and their direct welfare.
