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

Our Dahabiya, a traditional Nile vessel, carries a maximum of 16 passengers on our cruises. These small numbers are very manageable and mean we can limit any effect we have on the local environment to a minimal amount. For an example, all of the waste is transported to the ports we use and deposited into approved waste management systems.

We visit some small sites not accessible to larger vessels, but also not monitored by the tourist authorities so we are very careful how we behave in these lesser visited sites, and we brief all of our passengers on how they should conduct themselves in these sensitive environments.

By visiting these ancient sites along the Nile, and by paying our fees, we are helping to contribute to the preservation of these great sites and to make sure that they will be available to future generations.

The Nile is a fragile environment and one on which our crew and staff rely for their livelihoods. Thus they are very aware of the importance of maintaining this environment, and they are very keen to maintain these standards during the cruise, as well as impressing these standards on our clients.

People

Firstly all of the staff on board are Egyptian, providing some much needed employment in a country that really needs stable jobs for its population. All of the food we eat is grown locally and locally sourced, providing further benefits for the local economy.

By visiting some smaller sites, including a Nubian Village, that the larger vessels bypass and ignore, we are helping to spread the benefit of out visit to a wider community, and, at least as important, this helps our passengers understand the challenges faced by some of the local population.

We make sure we brief our clients on cultural standards in Egypt and the local communities we visit. These cultures can have very different standards to those of our passengers and it is important to make sure that no offence is caused on either side. We find that often the relationships that develop between our staff and crew, and the passengers are as an important part of the vacation as the sites visited.
