Ecotourism Holidays

Ecotourism holidays or responsible travel are essentially forms of tourism that respect the places, wildlife and people of the destinations. They can involve visiting fragile environments and relatively undisturbed natural habitats, can benefit local people and preserve the natural world. These holidays are low-impact and small-scale alternative to standard commercial (mass) tourism.

Whether you call it ecotourism, responsible travel, eco-friendly holidays or sustainable tours, it doesn’t really matter. What is certain, though, is that Tribes loves to organise such trips. We are good at it and we’re recognised global award-winners for responsible holidays.

What makes a good ecotourism holiday?

  • The holidays have a strong feel-good factor for you. These are GREAT holidays!
  • Many people you meet will know that your presence is benefitting them, so you are usually met with happy, helpful people.
  • Most of the places you stay will have a strong regard for their environment, so you are helping to preserve the habitats you have come to see.
  • At Tribes, we know these trips and many of the people behind them well, and we care about your experience with them.

Clients tend to return from trips raving about the excellent and authentic experience they've had. Join our Tribe of people who travel with Respect.

The local companies you used along the way seem to have the highest wildlife/environmental policies available. All the guides totally respected the wildlife and environment.
