The Ethical Wandering...

 

It’s about helping to conserve the world’s wild places; sustainability; and ‘giving something back’.

It’s about providing and having a more rewarding and fulfilling travel experience; being culturally sensitive and minimizing negative impacts on the environment; getting involved with the local people – ensuring that your tourist money benefits the community and that the local people are involved in decisions that affect their lives.

We will help you ‘get beneath the skin’ of the places you visit – meet the local people on their terms, learn about history and culture, and enjoy wilderness, experiences that don’t damage the environment. By travelling ‘responsibly’ you’ll be making a positive contribution to the host communities and environments you visit, ensuring that future travelers will enjoy the same privilege.

Ethical tourism is our key philosophy. We strive our best to operate ethically, yet without draining the fun of a vacation.
