Responsible tourism: Rajasthan vacation, Christmas time

Environment

In India we have developed unique relationships with many people, some of whom help us with our tours, others that simply live in the different regions to which we travel through. Through our form of interactive, socially conscious tourism, we have helped them adapt to the modern, changing world by providing an important additional income.

In arid Rajasthan, we have implemented tree planting schemes (a hands on experience for some of our trips!) as well as helping directly with the financing of rural village schools.

When you take one of our trips, we make a contribution to “Carbon Clear” – an organisation who work with hundreds of organisations to measure their carbon footprint and reduce their carbon emissions. We also support several NGOs around the world such as the TESFA community project in Ethiopia, A-Cet and Adopt-A-Minefield, which are all carefully selected to improve the standard of living for the communities we visit.

Community

All our tours employ the services of local guides and drivers, stay in locally owned hotels and guesthouses – often staying in our guides villages and homes, which again diverts important funds directly into the area. The wonderful thing about this kind of interactive tourism is that everyone gains – the locals financially, and our clients with the unique experience and social interaction.

We train our staff (both local and Western) to be responsible travelers in the countryside and to respect local community and environment. Also we have trainers for Leave No Trace Ethic.

Trying to do our bit for the environment, in 2005 we were among the first UK-based travel companies to automatically offset every client’s international flight (if booked with us) with a payment to Carbon Clear to help promote sustainable energy. Devoted to ‘offsetting’ or ‘neutralising’ harmful greenhouse gas emissions caused by your flight, Carbon Clear achieve this by funding projects across the world that will reduce greenhouse gases on your behalf through sustainable energy or rainforest restoration.
