is a Green Hotel? This is an exciting development in the accommodation
industry. Hotels, motels, inns, campgrounds, and bed and breakfasts
all over the world have started to make their businesses greener
by either participating in certification programs or by maintaining
memberships green hotel associations which require them to take
measures which help protect the environment. We have made an intense
search for such hotels and happily the list is growing.
Many measures may take place behind the scenes and include things
like energy efficient heating and lighting, waste reduction, water
conservation, use of non-polluting soaps and cleansers, recycling
of sheets and linens and a host of others. Some measures may be
more visible such as towel and linens reuse cards in your rooms,
notices throughout the facility on ways visitors can protect the
region they are visiting. We therefore use certified green hotels
where ever we can so that we are assured that we are taking responsible
steps to keep our tours as eco as possible.
Eco Tours are
committed to leaving a small footprint while ensuring that local
people benefit from tourism. The ecotourism concept is to operate the enterprise of tourism so that a fair share of the monetary benefits stick in the local host community while reducing the environmental impact and providing the visitor with an enhanced experience.
A La Carte Vacations: these vacations are immensely
satisfying in that they are your trip and no one else's. You are
not joining a group and you are not limited to a set "package".
We will customize to suit your interests, budget and needs, while
keeping a focus on the principles of ecological integrity.
Independent types of tours work well if you are looking for optional
choices and less prepaid services. We meet you at the airport
and pre-arrange all your transfers, a few locally guided tours,
some meals and all your accommodation.
Departures are guaranteed
with a minimum of 2 passengers and depart either daily or at specific
days of the week. We also offer short modules at that you can piece
together or take on their own if you are travelling independently
but want to take part in a special organised package.
