Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Borneo activity vacation

Environment

All our expeditions are organised and led with a commitment to maximising the benefits of our trips to the local community and minimising the negative impact associated with tourism. We employ local agents and staff, not just to benefit the local economy, but also to give you a real sense of the local culture.

Wildlife: We have been active in installing Orangutan Bridges in the Kinabatangan in support of HUTAN and Chester Zoo, thus far we have set up about 20 as part of our commitment to directly assisting conservation programmes.
We have installed a wildlife watching platform for Cardiff University at the Danau Girang Field centre in support of the study of tropical biology.

Water: We have initiated a series of projects for youth teams to install water tanks for rainwater collection and storage in remote villages. Working with village heads and always employing local people we fund and install the water facilities to ensure that clean water is available to the families.

Community

Campaigning for change: Lobbying local politicians to fix bridges in rural communities where people need to access farms or use them to get to school.
Promoting local tourism initiatives such as the Linunkit cultural village and the Batu Putih community ecotourism project.

A fair deal: Our guides are sourced from the communities of the places that we visit, we provide training and support ongoing professional development, all our staff are encouraged to take a course per year which we fund.

Local crafts and culture: To support the local communities, we sleep and eat in locally-run establishments where possible, and interact sensibly with locals as we believe in positive cultural exchanges so as not to change their lives – this means trade not aid.

We will ensure that:
- We pay a fair income for all locally employed staff
- Use local equipment and vehicles when we can
- We purchase food from locally sourced providers
- Use locally owned and run accommodation where possible
- Discourage local begging and giving of cash gifts
- Employ local agents therefore ensuring income is kept in country whenever possible
- Encourage maximum communications between locals and participants to encourage mutual understanding and respect between cultures
