Responsible tourism

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we screen every trip so you can travel knowing your vacation will help support conservation and local people.

Environment
Most of the travelers who are interested in our sustainable programs are savvy and dedicated to travel responsibly. Most of them bring their own refill bottles for their hiking and trekking journey. Otherwise, we supply with them a brand new trekking bottle. We devote always a Land Rover for supply. We always get 4 bottles of 10 gallons each of mineral water with us. If we are using mules 2 bottles of 10 gallons. So there is plenty of refill water always available for our travelers. We use these bottles as they have a spout so it is easy to refill without losing a drop.

Our guides brief all our guests not to litter, how to dispose of the garbage, how to respect wild plants and farmers crops while crossing these fields. How to respect wells and natural spring by not bating in them or waste their water foolishly. Locals have their drinking supply from these sources.

Our guests are also explained how to respect local villagers, not to corrupt children by giving them money of sweet candies especially and to give them only what could be of use to them like school supplies, pencils, and pens for example. They are also asked never to take a picture of people without their consent.

They should give priority to flocks crossing paths and roads and follow the footpaths instead of walking on open fields, not to play with errand dogs and street cats, etc... There are many cultural encounters and the briefing varies from one area to another in Morocco.

We strive to ensure that we leave these areas as we find them and our team have been trained in strict no litter policies, meaning that we take all refuse to either be recycled or properly disposed of in nearby towns.

The Impacts of this Trip

The tour operator has earned the reputation of being a sustainable tour operator in Morocco. All our tours are focused on helping local communities, minorities and working with all sectors of environment and ecotourism preservation. We work side by side with eco-development Government Agencies and NGOs as well. We take our people to many environmental projects in urban and rural areas, we visit traditional irrigation programs that the Ministry of water and forests sponsors. We have access to Goodwill associations fieldwork sites helping villages in remote areas of the Atlas Mountains and the Sahara Desert, respectively field projects of replanting Olive and Argan trees, palm groves and reinstating deforestation areas throughout Morocco. An endeavor has been launched by the king of Morocco to make Morocco green again by planting over two million hectares of Olive trees throughout the kingdom. We visit regional Ministry of Agriculture nurseries improving native plants and cloning new fruit trees and also water purifying plants, water preservation projects in arid areas, solar energy on which Morocco is a leader in Africa for renewable energy.

We have many success stories of which some of our travelers have participated. By visiting a village in eastern Morocco where drinking water was scarce, an American family donated $3500 to dig a well that is now in total function satisfying the whole village with drinking water. We visited once an association of widowed women farmers in Taza where our group bought ten small Olive trees each and planted them for these women in their plots. There are a lot of goodwill people who participate or build a direct relationship with environmental and social goodwill associations in different fields especially young women enterprises and orphanages.
