Tribes Travel is a founding member of the Ethical Tour Operators Group (ETOG). Responsible, sustainable travel is key to Tribes. This ETOG group comes under the auspices of the UK’s Tourism Concern, a charity which campaigns for better tourism worldwide.
As Responsible Tourism Week draws to a close, ’d like to share some of Tribes’ 5-Globe Eco-Rated lodges and hotels with you, maybe inspiring you when looking to travel responsibly. Tribes’ thorough social and environmental review culminates in the award of an eco-rating, reflecting each property’s eco-credentials.
If you’re considering a safari in South Luangwa National Park in Zambia, I recommend a really excellent small safari company – Shenton Safaris. Owned by Derek and Jules Shenton, this is a company whose passion for the valley of South Luangwa is long term and in depth. They really know and love this place!
