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.
PlanetWhere possible we choose to travel by land rather than air. By minimizing the use of flights on our trips, we are making journeys more stimulating and more sustainable for travelers. This trip through Morocco does not include any flights, providing all transport by road. We ensure our vehicles are well maintained and fuel-efficient. We use vehicles that are an appropriate size to suit the group size. For example, we wouldn’t use a 16-seater van if we only had five people traveling with us. We plan our routes of travel so that we spend as little time as possible traveling.
We provide travelers with reusable fabric tote bags. The bags are made by women in the south west of Morocco, who are provided with learning materials and training in sewing and embroidery. Pollution was highlighted as an important issue in Morocco during the 2016 UN Climate Change Conference. Following the conference, the government banned the use of plastic bags in supermarkets and has supported initiatives from all industries to reduce waste.
PeopleAll aspects of this trip (on the ground) are operated by Moroccans. This includes our leaders, vehicle drivers, local site guides, and accommodation providers. This trip stays at Riad Nesma in Marrakech. This property is owned by a local couple, meaning that ownership is 50% female, which isn’t the norm in Morocco. The owners work with Amal, a local non-profit association that provides hospitality training to disadvantaged women. Riad Nesma offers employment to women who have completed training at Amal.
We go direct to the source for many of the inclusions on our trips. This ensures that income from tourism is directly benefitting local communities everywhere we go. We also seek out and support businesses owned by women. Tourism can empower women in many ways, but particularly through the creation of jobs and income generating opportunities in small and larger-scale tourism and hospitality-related enterprises. This trip includes lunch at Tawesna, a women-only co-op in Ait Ben Haddou. The women of the co-op love sharing their specialty dishes and stories with visitors, and the income and independence generated is a huge boost to their self-confidence and quality of life.
