Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Namibia small group vacation, sand dunes & safari

Environment

As a company: We strive to operate as a paperless company as far as possible, and recycle wherever facilities are available. We use toxic-free fair trade products whenever we can.

Our clientsí requirements are of primary importance to us at all times, as we know that our growth and success depend on their continued support. Having travelled extensively ourselves and witnessed first-hand how tourism can have either positive or negative effects on local communities; we vowed to always endeavor to leave a positive mark on all places we visit and send clients.

On the road: Many of the resorts and operators we work with offer our clients free drinking water refills to minimise wastage of plastic bottles through out the trips; and ask clients if they want items laundered before simply washing towels and linens unnecessarily, to conserve water.

At the game reserve all the guides and trackers are local to the area and have been trained by the reserve management, bettering their communities. When visiting Estosha National Park for example, youíll be accompanied by a local guide who is knowledgeable about not only the local culture and history of the area, but also of the flora and fauna around the sanctuary. The guide will ensure that the group understand all the doís and doníts while visiting this National Park.
A portion of the reserve fees go to their conservation efforts. Guests are told of this campaign and educated about the conservation issues in an attempt to encourage awareness, and action.

The accommodation is focused on responsible travel, 80% of the staff are from the local community and sources products and produce from local suppliers wherever possible.

Community

This tour has been designed to both operate in a way that minimises our impact on the environment that we visit and to maximise the benefit that our clients can have on the host community.

We endeavour to follow responsible guidelines, as with all trips. Here the group goes to a local craft market to purchase items directly from the local artisans.

We encourage interaction with local communities, however we keep our group sizes small and provide advice during the trip to ensure our impact on the indigenous way of live is minimised. We encourage our clients to have a truly immersive experience as well as support the livelihood of the local community.

When visiting Estosha National Park, youíll be accompanied by a local guide who is knowledgeable about not only the local culture and history of the area, but also of the flora and fauna around the sanctuary. The guide will ensure that the group understand all the doís and doníts while visiting this National Park.

We use local guides and drivers to support the local community.

Where possible we have choosen to stay in privately owned boutique accommodation where possible to support the local community
