Responsible Travel

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.

Planet

On this program we strive to preserve and protect delicate routes and natural habitats in order to not enhance mass-tourism in remote areas and minimise the effects of our presence in such areas. We therefore choose routes for the program that are specific for Tourism and trekking and avoid exploring remote areas to protect and conserve remote areas.

We inform client about lack of water on Cape Verde and water use prior to starting the program to minimize overuse of water. This is also seen written on the programs and therefor ask travelers to minimize the use of water. Reducing water usage helps keep water use sustainable which is much needed on small Islands. In general at the family guesthouses wastewater leftover water from the kitchen, cleaning, laundry is reused for use in the garden for crops etc.

Clients also stay at family guesthouses en route, staying at family guesthouses benefits the community welfare by protecting natural space and resources. Small guesthouses need less space and less cutting of trees to make space for big hotels example. Also small family guesthouses are more open to proper care of waste.

People

On this program we do cultural visits to learn about the socio - development. In this way the money generates back to the community. As a percentage of the trip is used for the social programs.

We also use local restaurants and stayovers to empower micro/small businesses. On the trip for example we pass by Cha' d Igreja where we have a traditional meal with a farmer's family. To furthermore support local farmers we also pass by routes where we are able to see the local production of rum inside the valley.

We strongly believe in the human rights protection of local people, in specific the protection of young females being exposed. We give a voice to this through the women΄s empowerment program. We also strongly believe in the human rights protection of Children and bring awareness on the subject of child protection where tourism is concerned. To this end we have set up a educational program to learn more about the impact of Tourism on Cape Verde. To be able to do our programs of empowerment part of the money earned from the trip goes to such a program so these programs are given at our cost for free to the community.
