Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Tigers safaris in India

Environment

In India TOFT audit the resorts and accommodation to make sure that they run sustainably and that they meet environmentally friendly aims. By being a member of TOFT we use only TOFT approved accommodation, so you can be assured that the food you eat is locally and responsibly sourced as is the furniture, fuel and other resources used by the accommodation. TOFT also helps many projects to aid in the development and management of the national parks such as the park guide training and support programme, setting up of a ‘Sponsor a Guard Post’ or ‘Chowkie’ programme, establishing the park wildlife monitoring programme through Park Guides, an improved livestock compensation scheme (that compliments or enhances local Forestry ones) and setting up compostable loos in park areas and mechanism for disposal. All this is done with the overall aim in improving the environmental practises of the national parks and making their use more sustainable.

Wildlife Promise:

In India the main impact that our tours have on the wildlife is through the numerous scientific studies which are conducted throughout India by some of India’s and the world’s best zoologists. This research is all done with the purpose of understanding the tigers’ role in the ecosystem and the effect that tourism and local populations have on the tiger and vice versa. Once these impacts have been assessed TOFT can improve and make sure that tiger safaris in India are sustainable.

Community

The local community benefits from our tiger tours of India because we are a member of the Tour Operators for Tigers (TOFT) organisation. This group is the leading force when it comes to stabilising eco-tourism in India and making tiger safaris sustainable for the future. Money is donated my us every year and then the money is allocated to various projects such as setting up community vegetable gardens to supply fresh fruit and vegetables to lodges, setting up of local handicrafts and cooperatives to sell handicrafts to lodges & visitors, setting up of nature trails for visitors with training of local guides, building of suitable ‘Machans’ for visitors to watch wildlife or birdlife, refurbishment and upgrade of village homes for homestay visitors, reforestation projects with indigenous tree species and local environmental education programmes.

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


Seeing tigers in the wild was of course amazing, but actually I think the highlight was when we sat in the jeep near a lake as the sun went down and all of a sudden we heard a tiger roar through the jungle. Goosebump experience.

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


Book at least 3 full days, preferably 4 (2 safaris a day) to increase the chance of seeing tigers. They are very elusive and there is no guarantee that you will actually see any even in a relatively small national park like Tadoba. We saw tigers on 5 of our 8 safaris (10 different tigers).

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


All the staff at the lodge were from the local village as were the guides in the national park. We learned quite a lot about the tigers and the other animals and how poaching has been almost eradicated in the area, by involving the locals in the preservation. Staying close to the park ensured that we did not have to drive very far to get there.

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


Good to see both Delhi (a single day was enough, though) and the countryside.
