We cater for both vegetarians and vegans.
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.
PlanetThis cycling adventure means that we can explore the beautiful landscape without impacting the environment in a negative way. As such, we organise our routes carefully and ensure that we tread lightly.
We support the understanding, appreciation and conservation of the cultures and environments we visit.
Whenever possible we use accommodations that are not wasteful of local resources or destructive to the environment. We camp for a few days on our trip- which can be a low impact form of accommodation. We leave the campsites we use in the same or better condition than when we found it. Where possible we use established, locally owned and run camp sites.
We are efficient in our use of natural resources. While on our trip we clear all rubbish, and are careful with the supply of soaps, firewood, water, fuel and other item that can negatively impact the environment.
Our trip is appropriate to Malagasy conditions. Our group sizes are regulated to minimise cultural and environmental impact. We use expert tour leaders throughout and they will advise you on the best way to observe wildlife inside and outside the parks.
PeopleOur local staff accompanying this expedition will give you a real sense of Madagascan culture. We only use Malagasy guides, pay all staff fair wages and treat everybody on the trip, including staff, with equal respect and we expect you to do the same.
It is principally wildlife tourism that brings people to Madagascar and by using local businesses and services we can inject much needed capital into the local economy. On this expedition for example, we stay in small towns and villages interacting with the locals.
The local community are very much a part of all our trip. We use Malagasy businesses and services to ensure our partnerships benefit local communities. We work with Malagasy people where possible, and we provide training where appropriate. For example, we employ site specific Malagasy guides who provide cultural and environmental interpretation.
We spend time visiting social projects, to learn about culture and way of life.
