Responsible tourism

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we screen every trip so you can travel knowing your vacation will help support conservation and local people.

Environment
The environment and sustainability is high on our list of concerns. We take pride in the achievement of a healthy balance between environment, local people and YOU, the tourist.

We do not encourage or promote any unethical business or wildlife activities. As an example, Madagascar is a place where people may want to visit places where people can touch lemurs – we never include this in any of the tours we offer as we learned that these lemurs are not always treated well and that they will never be released into the wild. Moreover, their babies will also remain captive for their whole lives. We tell our clients that they should not touch animals as it is not ethical practice.

Our wildlife safaris or tours are run by experienced locals who rely on the National Parks for their livelihoods, and operate in the respect of local and international wildlife standards. Visits to nature reserves and national parks are popular among vacationmakers to Madagascar. We give instructions to both our clients and guides on how to minimise impact on environment disturbance to the wildlife.


We ask people to travel light and not to take plastic material with them if possible. We also encourage them to eat at least once a day outside their hotel in order to support local businesses.

We ensure that the hotels that we choosing for our vacations are doing something good for the environment, from recycling through growing their own fruits and vegetables to using solar power. For example Setrana Lodge was built by using natural and local sources. Also the setting it is not intrusive and it blends with surroundings environment
Setam Lodge has concept of an Ecolodge and is ruled by several requisites of which the necessity to be in perfect harmony with the environment and to offer an excellent level of comfort. Most food that is served in this hotel is locally grown.

We always ensure that our transport vehicles are regularly checked for carbon emmissions.

To ensure environmental awareness of our clients we provide them with detailed environmental information about places they visit, and how they can help.
Community

The Impacts of this Trip

Responsible tourism satisfies these social needs through contact with local people, and takes us further up the ladder to self-actualisation and realisation through creative activities, knowledge and exploration.

Our mission is to bring tourists closer to local people, their traditions, customs and beliefs. We provide many opportunities for our clients to experience what is the ‘real’ country.

We encourage and include many local projects in our itineraries. For example, in Madagascar we offer the chance to be part of a locally run project to stay in the village with locals and help them with their everyday activities.

As James Beard once said “Food is our common ground, a universal experience.” Therefore, we encourage our clients to try to learn how to cook local dishes by interacting with local people. While touring, we suggest to them that they can visit local art museums, see local performances and respect local people and they beliefs.

During this trip you will have chance to visit remote places that are not accesiblr by care but you will use 4 x 4. Visiting these places you will have a chance to purchuse local goods.

We use local drivers and guides throughout this trip and most hotels are locally owned. This is a great contribution to many famillies.

Here are also 2 more examples, where you will contribute during this tour:
1. Anjaha Community Reserve in Madagascar, Anja Park is a great place to see ring tailed lemurs in the troops. It is community run initiative to protect the lemurs. Many community parks and reserves were established to protect natural resources and to empower Malagasy people with rights to their lands and the benefits of ecotourism. Anja Reserve is the most visited community managed forest and ecotourism site in Madagascar. Anja has become a vital example of how community management of natural resources can both effectively protect the area and benefit the community.

2. Mitsinjo Reserve (Madagascar) belongs to the Andasibe - Analamazaotra National Park. It is a community-run conservation organization work with the local communities to protect the nature and wildlife in sustainable way.
Association Mitsinjo was formed in 1999 by residents of the village Andasibe in east-central Madagascar. Interested to work as guides for the growing number of tourists visiting the region, their project eventually grew into much more. In 2003 it gained management of Analamazaotra Forest Station and in 2005 the Torotorofotsy Ramsar Site, which are now their main focal areas for conservation, research and sustainable development initiatives.
Today the organization is composed of more than 50 members from the local community.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?


Without a doubt the most memorable bit was our stay on Tsarabanjina - it was absolutely paradise and the most wonderful end to a great few weeks. The
whole trip was both memorable and exciting, however, with so much variety in terms of activities and accommodation.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?


Ask the Malagasy guides loads of questions and get them to take you to places off the beaten track. Going into smaller local restaurants were some of the best
parts of our trip!

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


Yes! All of the local guides that we encountered along the way had nothing but praise for the travel company, and all of activities in National Parks contributed
towards the upkeep of natural habitats across Madagascar.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?


Fantastic! An absolutely incredible and well organised trip, which exceeded our expectations throughout. Highly recommended.
