Holidays with heart

The best kinds of holidays are those which give us incredible experiences which we look back on a treasure for years to come. It might be a beach break or a city break, a wildlife holiday or a walking trip – or sometimes all of them at different times. Whatever the kind of holiday you like though, at Tribes we love making our trips special in a variety of ways.
We want our holidays to:

  • Offer you inspiring experiences.
  • Use authentic places to stay whose owners really care about their services to our clients.
  • Give something back to the places, people or wildlife of that destination.


Holidays with Heart

Many of the trips we suggest are not only wonderful holidays for you, but also have an element of positive benefit for the places you go. You might call them conservation holidays, ecotourism, sustainable travels … it doesn’t really matter. The point is that they make a difference in some way.

Some of our suggested holidays are particularly special in this regard. These are our Holidays with Heart and below you’ll find a list of them along with the reasons that we think they’re special.

A Room with Heart

These holidays are, as always with Tribes, just ideas. You might want something different. If you do, but you want to ensure that your trip is using places which make a difference, use our A Room with Heart accommodations. As with the Holiday with Heart, watch out for the heart symbol which flags up these places.


We do hope you love the sound of some of these amazing holidays, and if we can help you with these or other ideas which will give you the best ever holiday whilst also bringing a benefit locally, we would be delighted to hear from you.

A Family Safari and Beach Adventure - 13 days

Not only is this a wonderful Kenya holiday, but it has superb credentials when it comes to doing its bit for both the wildlife and some local communities.

Three of the places we’ve chosen for this trip are giving back to their areas in fantastic ways.

Samburu Intrepids Camp is silver-rated by EcoTourism Kenya. They put staff welfare firmly at the front of their agenda, but local produce from the local community where possible, and employ a local dance troupe. In addition, they have excellent policies on wastes, water and energy usage, have a weekly environmental day, a tree planting initiative, and they support both the Kenya Wildlife Service and Ewaso Lion Project with wildlife monitoring.

Karen Blixen Camp is gold-rated, and rightly so. They offer huge amounts of support to their local community, such as a Hospitality School, women’s empowerment classes, a village school, and provide staff with a welfare committee and vegetables from their organic garden. As well as this they are 100% solar, recycle everything they can (their hospitality school was made from blocks from old tetra packs!), they plant trees and support the Mara Elephant Project too.

Turtle Bay is also gold-rated. Again, they have huge commitment to staff and locals, supporting such things as a community dispensary and maternity wing, and various orphanages in the area. They are keep their energy, waste and water usage as low as possible.

You can certainly come on this holiday feeling good that you will have a great time, but at the same time, you will be having a really positive impact on the places you’re visiting.
