Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Chad vacation, Peaks of the Tibesti


This trip spends time visiting some of the most remote communities on our planet and we place a great emphasis on treading sensitively. Where possible we buy supplies along the way, and although our groups are small this can make a significant input into the local economy of villages which otherwise have little opportunity to trade.

By limiting our presence in areas where local culture can be quite fragile, we hope to avoid as much as possible the phenomenon whereby an area changes in character due to repeated and prolonged exposure to tourism. We want to visit an area as friends, not intruders and to ensure that what we see will also be there for others to enjoy for many years to come.

Our groups average only six clients. This has much less impact when traveling through rural areas, reducing our environmental and social affects. Finally to emphasise our commitment to Responsible Tourism all clients will receive a copy of our Travelers Code of Conduct with their travel documents.

This tour travels through some very remote and often pristine environments, and outside of N’Djamena all nights are spent camping. We make a point of ensuring that we do not leave any permanent traces of our stay behind, making sure that we take all litter with us. The desert is a fragile environment and we take great pains to ensure that we do not disturb it.


The local Tubu population are especially wary about having their photographs taken and our groups are carefully briefed on this in order that we do not offend.

When visiting villages we at first ensure that our presence is welcome rather than simply descending en masse and overwhelming the local people, as many of whom may not have seen western travelers before. In exchange for allowing us an insight into their lives we bring gifts of items that are hard to come by for semi-nomadic people, such as soap and tea, which are gratefully received by the women of the families. We feel that it is very important not to intrude upon the lives of these people and so will only stop at settlements that we know are happy to receive visitors.

We work with Chadian drivers and guides, and at the end of each tour travelers are able to leave any unwanted clothes that they can then distribute.
