Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Petra and Wadi Rum horse riding vacation, Jordan

Environment

We have a strict environmental policy to make sure that the fragile eco-system of the mountains is not damaged or spoilt in any way. On our horse riding in Jordan, our guides are trained to uphold this policy and all clients are fully briefed on appropriate/responsible behaviour. Our “Leave No Trace” ethic is applied to all trips in all regions, and as tour operators is something we are careful to promote.

By keeping the group size to a maximum of 12, we can also minimise the human impact on the fragile sites we visit – particularly important as this trip visits some remote sites that aren’t policed by tourist regulators.

When you take one of our trips, we make a contribution to 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.

Community

In each area we employ and develop close relationships with drivers, camp staff and guides. We feel the interaction between our friends and our clients offers both parties a valuable understanding between cultures.

In Jordan we use local ground handlers who in turn book locally run hotels, providing employment for a number of members of staff and support families. The ground handlers also use local drivers and camp staff, and ensure that all supplies are purchased locally for the journey. This means that all the operational costs go directly into the local economy.

On our horse treks, we work exclusively with local horses and horsemen, who ensure that the horses we trek with are well treated, well fed and well looked after.

We also support several NGOs around the world such as the Hope Foundation, A-Cet and Adopt-A-Minefield, which are all carefully selected to improve the standard of living for the communities we visit.
