Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Tailor made Rajasthan tour, India

The company offering this trips eco-rates many of the property it sells. Two of the places you stay on this trip are homestays, and as such they are an particularly excellent way of getting an insight into life in India. It also helps local people to benefit more directly from tourism in their locality. The homestays are locally owned and run, they employ local people, they use local services and buy from local shops. Being small homes with caring owners, they also take great case to minimise fuel usage (eg lighting) and water usage as they understand how important such resources are for their community.

There are also two additional experiences which can be added to this trip to make it even more special. One is a cooking class in Udaipur – a really excellent way to get involved in Indian culture and traditions, and the other is a trip to the Bishnoi villages near jodhpur. The Bishnoi people were some of the world’s first eco-warrriors. Their beliefs tell them to respect nature, be kind to animals, and not to cut down trees. Meet some of the local people and find out more about their views on mother nature.

Every booking with this company brings funds to a charity which supports grassroots projects in various countries. The charity backs children’s orphanages, wildlife conservation and health centres amongst other things.

To help with carbon offsetting but also backing poverty alleviation and improve environmental biodiversity, we automatically plant trees on behalf of every client that travels with us. Currently this is done in a very degraded area of northern Malawi, where we plant quick growing exotic trees to provide firewood to the local population so that they don’t chop down the indigenous forest.

The company gives written guidelines to every traveler on how to travel sensitively with regards to local people, and as regards to environmental responsibility. This includes all policies relevant to each trip. No overseas guides are used on any trip run by them, all local guides are used – often supplemented by indigenous guides too where suitable.

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


History and culture. I enjoyed the amazing hotels we stayed in that were beautiful locations and historical.

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


Due to distance between locations, ensure there are two nights at every hotel. There is significant time spent driving (in a car) between each location. If flying from Delhi during December / January be aware of fog delaying / cancelling flights.

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


We visited local communities (e.g. Bishnoi, Samode) but not sure how it benefitted them. Reduction in environmental impact or conservation wasn't apparent.

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


7/10
