As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) vacation so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.
PlanetEco-conscious family stays
We support Carla & Muna, a Sri Lankan Family and their quaint eco-homestay situated near Yala National Park. As a company we will only use their property for all our travelers in the area due to their policies on conservation, eco-sensitivity and their rich local knowledge.
Carla & Muna have a small property, situated by a river besides the Yala National Park with cottages constructed entirely out of local eco-material such as compacted earth, coconut thatch, the wood from coconut trees and other materials sourced locally. As pure vegetarians, they ensure that all their food prepared, served and consumed is from raw materials present on their property and additionally from only local farmers in the region that surrounds them.
Given Carla & Muna’s respect for their local environment, their property is designed and laid out to be as natural as possible with a proliferation of natural flowering and fruiting plants and trees; all set within a few metres away from the river. As a result their property attracts a multitude of endemic bird species from the nearby Yala National Park, making their property an important pollen generator for the surrounding region.
PeopleLocal Driver and Guide
Jayanth De Silva is a not only a local expert and Guide on Sri Lanka’s history, sights and the local cultures but is also an expert Driver. As an professional, Jayanth has the ability to not only chauffer visitors through Sri Lanka safely, but also provides unique insights into this Island Nation’s unique culture, the history of it’s people and the nuances of the various communities and their religions; all this apart from being a qualified Guide to all the local Monuments and historic sights of the regions.
Like Jayanth de Silva, we hire only locals to serve this exact role for all our travelers through the Island Nation of Sri Lanka. With this job, Jayanth is not only able to support his family and give his children the future they deserve, but also serves as an inspiration and model for other young Sri Lankans who realize that there is such a great potential in being a professional like Jayanth.
We use local, eco and socially responsible properties such as the property of Carla & Muna near the Yala National Park. As local Sri Lankans themselves, they strongly believe in employing locals from their surrounding villages. This serves a couple of functions where firstly it gives locals a form of steady, well paying employment without having to travel away from their home bases and it encourages and keeps alive the traditions of local cuisine styles and practices – from the use of local ingredients to the use of age-old cooking practices and use of spices and ingredients. For example, the property and the locals who work there have expert knowledge on the right use of all the elements of the Coconut tree, from construction to the use of it’s fruit in cooking and as an effective repository for natural minerals that the body requires.
Scuba Diving is another area that provides much needed training and employment to the boys of local Fishing families by the coast, especially since the devastating Tsunami. Since then we have supported PADI training institutes and organizations that recruit and train locals and who have helped them overcome the trauma of the water and return to life by the coasts.
