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

In Mali, key tourist destinations are spread far throughout the country, and we plan tours carefully so as to maximise ride sharing. We make sure to arrange transport that accommodates maximum capacity while still maintaining comfort for our guests. Mineral water is safest for tourists and we always offer empty bottles to children and adults along our journeys who will continue a long cycle of re-use for the bottles. Mali currently is working to reduce large amounts of plastic bags that are not properly disposed of throughout the land, and travelers are quickly made aware of this and encouraged to individually do their part to dispose of any waste in designated facilities.

People

We work hard to ensure positive impacts to the local communities and surroundings that we encounter, and encourage travelers to contribute items that are inexpensive and easy to pack, such as pens for schoolchildren and recycled clothing. Our group sizes typically range from 5 to 9 people, which we believe minimizes impact to the environment and allows our travelers to gain more insight into their surroundings through more individual attention from our guides.

We derive ultimate satisfaction from teaching our guests about Malian culture and keeping our traditions and heritage alive through carefully-planned, sustainable, developing tourism. Local community interaction is at the heart of this trip. Travelers have a unique opportunity to see local Bozo fishermen, visit local villages and witness the smoking of fish, roaming livestock, and petty trade, and spend an evening with local Tourag family.

We employ 100% local guides, drivers and cooks. Guides are selected who already have special knowledge about the areas they will introduce to tourists, have numerous local contacts, and constantly seek to increase their knowledge and have a passion for teaching tourists about their environments. With visits to local fruit and spice markets, a local women’s cooperative selling pottery & eating in local restaurants, this trip helps to stimulate the local community.
