Responsible tourism: Brazil tailor made vacation culture, nature & wildlife


The Amazon is a lifeline for the small communities and wildlife that call it home, and maintaining this environment is a mammoth task. Luckily there are ways of visiting this bucket list destination in a responsible manner. We have picked the Anavilhanas Jungle Lodge because we believe it is a shining example of sustainable luxury. It has it's own private water treatment facility, which ensures that no waste is disposed of in the river waters. In addition to this it has strict rules for both staff and visitors alike regarding the preservation of this incredible habitat. All guides are trained to keep themselves and visitors at a respectable distance from the wildlife, and interfering with any living creature is prohibited.

Pre-Trip Notes: Prior to travel we send all clients a trip dossier which is a detailed set of trip notes which not only include an in depth overview of their vacation but which also give responsible travel guidelines.

On Trip Advice: Whilst on tour our local guides are on hand to provide relevant advice on how to behave in an appropriate and responsible manner including recycling practices.

Social and Environmental Projects: Our primary focus is on social rather than environmental projects as these are more prevalent in Brazil and elsewhere in South America such as the Morrinho favela project which we encourage clients to visit when on vacation in Rio de Janeiro.


All of our itineraries are conducted in conjunction with carefully selected local partners that have been rigorously vetted to ensure that they operate in a responsible manner. The companies we work with similarly share our belief in responsible tourism. Many of our suppliers are members of ABETA, a Brazilian organisation whose aim it is to promote sustainability within the tourism sector and to encourage more people to adhere to such beliefs.

This tour uses local guides to take you around the many places we visit. These, like all our guides, are always local, without exception. Our experience is that our clients greatly enjoy the insight into the local culture and way of life that can be provided by a local guide.

When selecting hotels we generally look for smaller establishments that are locally owned, rather than large international chain hotels. This not only ensures that money stays within the local community but also usually provides a better experience for our clients. Smaller establishments often provide a level of service that is not often replicated in larger properties. In addition the staff and suppliers for smaller locally owned hotels are almost always from within the country concerned which retains tourist wealth. We also prefer to recommend hotels which do not negatively impact on their environment. Brazil, despite its flourishing economy, is still very much a developing country in terms of tourism, however there are a number of hotels at the forefront of sustainability projects creating environmentally low impact properties which mould into their surroundings.
