What is Responsible Tourism?
Responsible Tourism is about “making better places for people to live in and better places for people to visit.” Responsible Tourism requires that tour operators, hoteliers, governments, local people and tourists take responsibility, take action to make tourism more sustainable.
World Responsible Tourism Day encourages the industry to take responsibility for making tourism more sustainable and demonstrate their responsibility.
How do we practice good responsible tourism.
* minimizes negative economic, environmental and social impacts;
* generates greater economic benefits for local people and enhances the well-being of host communities, improves working conditions and access to the industry;
*involves local people in decisions that affect their lives and life changes;
* makes positive contributions to the conservation of natural and cultural heritage, to the maintenance of the world’s diversity;
* provides more enjoyable experiences for tourists through more meaningful connections with local people, and a greater understanding of local cultural, social and environmental issues;
* provide access for people with disabilities and the disadvantaged;
* is culturally sensitive, engenders respect between tourists and hosts, and builds local pride and confidence.
Behaviour can be more or less responsible and what is responsible in a particular place depends on upon environment and culture.

Responsible Tourism & Volunteering Abroad Kenya.
We're committed to sustainability, in the communities in which we operate and in the ecosystems we encounter. We seek to minimise the impact of our trips by reducing and properly reusing or disposing of waste created, by conserving energy and water areas are treated with respect.
We always strive to be as environmentally friendly as possible. Where possible we encourage our travelers to use public transportation, which also adds to the cultural experience. When we do need to use private transport we use modern fleets, which are more energy efficient and emit less carbon dioxide.
Cultural engagement and exchange are central to our company ethos, as each trip is a unique mixture of adventure, culture, and philanthropy. We maintain that one only gets to truly know a place by getting to know its people. Volunteer days of the trip are guided by our church volunteer work policies developed by the church on church-run volunteering guidelines
We support local efforts of sustainability by staying at eco-lodges and homestays during the trip.
GIVE BACK TO COMMUNITY.
