Treading lightly on the earth
Why Travel With Us?
Sacred Earth Travel is committed to responsible tourism and sustainable development practices. We are also committed to providing services of the highest quality and personalized attention.
We hand-pick our tour operators and lodges and choose only partners, who are equally committed to the values of social and environmental responsibility. We are proud to be working with some of the best operators in the business, who take the responsibility of travel seriously and continuously implement measures to make operations cleaner and greener while striving for the highest level of quality service. Thus, we are confident that the tours and lodgings we promote are of the highest standards.
Most of our travel partners have been certified in various eco-travel certification programs or won awards for their innovative approaches and eco-travel ethics. Others may be in line and waiting to become certified – the queue for certification is long. I do not discriminate on the basis of certification, but use my own discretion to discern whether an operation is sincere and genuine in their efforts or simply rides the green bandwagon.
Sacred Earth Travel is proud to be part of a global network of socially responsible businesses, committed to social change and environmental protection through the initiatives created or supported by our partners. Wherever possible, we will suggest small, boutique hotels with excellent standards of quality, giving preference to those, who demonstrate an ecological approach in their operations. But in the end, the choice is yours.
We specialize in custom designed itineraries, tailor-made to fit your interest, budget and time frame. Thus, you will find that many of the itineraries published here are relatively short, mostly private tours of 3 – 8 days. These are stand-alone packages, which can be modified according to your wishes or combined to create an individual tour to suit your preferences and interests. We place a strong emphasis on special interest tours, such as wildlife watching, birding and hiking, community-based tourism ventures, diving, snorkeling, and kayaking adventures, all of which have a very low environmental impact.
Sacred Earth Travel is dedicated to providing a friendly, personalized service with meticulous attention to every detail. Our commitment to ecological and social standards as well as our discerning choice of high-quality service providers and tour operators means that every aspect of your trip will be handled professionally and with the utmost care. By choosing to travel with us you will also directly or indirectly support social and/or environmental projects that are helping to protect endangered species, habitats, and support social causes that will benefit the communities within which we work.
