Dedication to Responsible Tourism PDF Print E-mail

For years, the members of the ARP Travel Group have supported initiatives that were of benefit to the environment, helped protect the environment and aided the communities in which we work. Our mission statement calls for connecting people at destinations on recreational travel through sustainable tourism engagements.

In our offices

Our offices have adopted a number of policies to reuse, recycle and conserve wherever possible.
These include:

  • Paper conservation efforts such as two sided printing
  • Changes to energy efficient lighting
  • Powering off computers during lunches and when leaving for the day
  • Using recycled paper where possible (including our price list)
  • Providing more information by email and internet, reducing printed documents

In our planning
We have designed a number of itineraries that reduce the dependency on vehicles. Also, we now have a variety of activities that allow cultural interaction with proceeds helping the community.
These include:

  • Walking, hiking and trekking safaris
  • Fly-in safaris (saving the need for vehicles driving long distances)
  • Community activities where our safari participants get involved

In our workshops
We have taken a number of steps in our workshops to make sure that we can reduce the carbon footprint created by our safaris. These include:

  • Proper tyre inflation
  • Engine tune-ups to improve fuel consumption
  • Recycling of oil
  • Driver training on driving techniques to reduce fuel usage
