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
During our trip, our group leaders take active steps to ensure our groups behave in an environmentally responsible manner, such as sticking to established trails, not leaving anything behind and not removing any plants. They are also always eager to share information about their country and culture.

Our local partners in Central Australia are committed to preserving the fragile desert environment and are well versed in ways of minimising the impact of activities such as driving through remote areas and camping in the bush.

Before travelers are taken to Uluru, they learn about the indigenous culture of the area at the Interpretive Centre and are encouraged to not climb the rock but to walk at the base in line with requests by the traditional owners.

As a company we aim to contribute to the environmental preservation of the destinations we visit and to reduce any negative impacts our operations may have. This translates to actions such as using local transport where safe to do so in order to reduce emissions, observing all national and marine park visitor rules and operating a Ďtake in, take back outí waste management system, to name but a few examples. Through our inhouse foundation we also invest money into environmental initiatives that benefit the planet, including restoring kelp forests to help reverse the effects of global warming and protecting endangered species such as sea turtles and elephants.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?


Cultural Aborigenal tour at Uluru. Great second night at Kingís Canyon since lovely spot and possibility to make a fire.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?




3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


Helped local people hopefully. Unfortunately a lot of food being thrown away. Travelers could keep at least their towel for the whole trip.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?


Competent guide, but not too much local knowledge shared during trips - which I would have expected. Not knowing in advance where we would sleep, we missed out on going to light fields in Yulara, big disappointment. People should be made aware of where the last spot with phone service for the day is, since some may need to contact family.Guides are put under enourmous stress, having to wake up early, hike and then drive long distances. This proved to be dangerous. Great places to visit, not the best tour.
