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.
PlanetBy keeping the group size to a maximum of 12, we can also minimise the human impact on the fragile sites and ecosystems we visit.
We attempt to reduce plastic bottle use wherever possible by promoting use of reusable and filtered water bottles. Our partnership with Water-To-Go provides a discount on filtered water bottles to our clients. We do not provide water from plastic bottles to our clients in country but always ensure there is regular access to drinking water on our tours.
Throughout most of the trip we will be traveling in minibuses. Traveling as a group in a small bus contributes less pollution than a multitude of vehicles. We will also be exploring many areas on by boat, to not only soak up the amazing sights at a slower pace, but to reduce our environmental impact and footprint along our journey.
PeopleWe will be fortunate enough to witness tribal festivals on each departure. One departure sees the Hagen festival, one of the longest running annual tribal gathering and cultural festival in Papua New Guinea hosted in Hagen, Capital of the Western Highlands Province. More than 50 tribes participate in the event performing extraordinary displays of 'singsings' - traditional songs, dances and ritual performances providing a dazzling array of colour and energy that showcases the diversity of this fabulous island. The other departure sees the Goroka Festival, the longest running annual tribal gathering and cultural festival in Papua New Guinea hosted in Goroka, Capital of the Eastern Highlands Province. More than 100 tribes participate in the event performing extraordinary displays of 'singsings' - traditional songs, dances and ritual performances providing a dazzling array of colour and energy that showcases the diversity of this fabulous island. Visiting such events respectfully helps to bridge the gap between cultures, provide tourism income to the local economy and preserve traditions for generations to come.
On Day 2,3,6 and 7 we will stay in a homestay/guesthouse in Sepik and Simbai for a unique glimpse into the traditions and customs of local life. The homestay/guesthouse market helps them to provide good, clean and interesting accommodation which in turn allows them to educate their children, improve their standard of living and look after their ill. The wonderful thing about this kind of interactive tourism is that everyone gains – the families financially and us with the wonderful welcome and experience they give us. Wherever possible we stay in locally owned accommodation, eat in locally owned establishments and purchase supplies from the local nomads.
