Description of Sri Lanka endemic bird watching tour
This trip can be tailor made throughout the year to suit your requirements
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.
PlanetWe take special care to reduce garbage and dispose properly. Bins and bags are provided in the vehicle as well as in accommodation places. Our chauffer guides make sure that all plastic, food and other waste are properly disposed. On every possible occasion, we use larger water bottles and refill the drinking water bottles of guests to reduce plastic usage. We use locally available hygienic drinking water and request not to waste water. Our guides explain how the money they spent is channeled to wildlife conservation in various locations they visit. We make sure our vehicles are well-serviced, “eco-tested” for efficient fuel consumption. Also, we use vehicle air conditioning only as needed to reduce fuel consumption. Some of the vehicles we use are hybrid vehicles which reduce fuel consumption. All our chauffeur guides are educated about the need to reduce consumption and reuse material. They are urged to make sure that every place we travel to is left clean with minimal impact on the environment.
PeopleThe aim of this tour is to provide a natural package of bird and wildlife photography without the use of undesirable and harmful methods such as audio play backs, which are detrimental to both the community of rare birds and tourist industry in the long run.
We do not promote commercial sales aimed at tourists, rather we ensure that our rates are reasonable, and some of the money you spend will directly and positively affect people at the village level.
We seek to improve the lives of the people who affect & conserve the birding habitats by buying products and services of local guiding etc. If the visitor decides to have no meat products (to avoid health risks & other reasons), we make sure that he gets quality organic vegetarian dishes.
We use locally owned restaurants with local staff. We inform guests about local food and cuisines. We hire local guides, chauffeur guides, and helpers. We educate clients and give them the option to buy local crafts and goods.
