Our environmental policy
1. Waste: In general we ensure that waste is minimized and recycled if possible, and that as a group, we leave no trace that we visited an area; a. All travelers are asked not to drop any litter anywhere. b. No food waste, whether cooked or not, is left out in the environment. c. When we encounter small scale waste (plastic bottles, etc.) on our walks, we collect it and dispose of it correctly.
2. Conservation: We distribute information on environmental damage minimization, covering the following points: a. Travelers make every effort not to damage the natural environment, flora and fauna. b. Travelers stick to the paths where they are. c. Travelers “take nothing but pictures, leave nothing but footprints and kill nothing but time” 🙂
3. Energy consumption: a. The company employees use 100% renewable energy in housing where possible. b. Oil and hydrocarbon usage: the jeeps are equipped with diesel engines in sizes to be as energy efficient as possible. Drivers drive smoothly to save fuel and make the tour as comfortable as possible.
