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

As with all of our luxury vacations, this itinerary has been crafted to ensure that it positively effects the local communities and environments visited.

This itinerary includes a trek up one of Tanzania's most iconic natural landmarks, the famed Mount Kilimanjaro. By visiting sites of natural beauty such as this (all entrance fees are included in your luxury tour), you are supporting the preservation and environmental protection of these areas, and indicating to authorities that tourists are interested in protecting Tanzania's incredible natural environments.

Whilst out on your trek, please ensure that you don’t leave any litter – everything you carry in, you must carry out. Aside from the environmental damage, litter can be harmful to Tanzania's wildlife.

We also make a special effort to recommend accommodation providers which have responsible and sustainable initiatives. For example, Arusha Coffee Lodge is part of Elewana Group. This group has founded the Land & Life Foundation, focused on nature conservation, as well as a Wildlife Warrior Program. All of Elewana’s properties promote a minimum environmental impact.

People

An intrepid undertaking, you will share this African adventure with your local team of professional staff all of whom receive unrivalled, fair salaries and are not reliant on tipping. We pay our porters the highest salaries in the history of Tanzanian trekking expeditions and we are partnered with KPAP (Kilimanjaro Porters Assistance Project).

KPAP is an organisation which raises awareness of the treatment of porters on Kilimanjaro, assists climbing companies to ensure fair and ethical treatment of porters, lends climbing gear to porters and mountain crew free of charge, and offers classes to empower and motivate porters and other crew as well.

Our accommodation choices make use of locally owned properties where possible and often include adventurous, authentic choices such as local homestays which therefore involve local people and their communities in the very fabric of our vacations.

We encourage all our travelers to research local customs and read your trip notes before you depart to ensure you are conscientious and respectful in a different culture.

In most cases we strongly recommend that you do not give money to children beggars. If begging is a successful enterprise, parents are encouraged to forsake their children’s education in pursuit of this opportunity.

Talk to us about packing for a purpose and see if you can get involved by making a small material contribution to the communities you are visiting. We have developed partnerships with charities and accommodations throughout Tanzania and are constantly working to extend our reach with the help of our travelers.
