Responsible travel

We’ve all seen places ruined by insensitive tourism, and perhaps seen communities deprived of the benefits travellers can bring.

At Peregrine, we believe that with a little bit of sensitivity and awareness, tourism can bring benefits to all and take away from no-one. So we have a simple set of principles for Responsible Tourism:

  • We offset all major carbon emissions created by our trips, offices and staff travel
  • We only run groups in small sizes to help minimize environmental and cultural impact.
  • We hire local leaders, guides and porters wherever possible
  • We source locally-owned accommodation, restaurants and campsites wherever possible
  • We show our clients how to spend money in a way that most benefits local communities
  • We initiate and support projects to help local communities around the world. Last year, the Peregrine and Gecko’s Community Trust Fund gave more than $130,000 to such projects.

 

  • Peregrine and responsible tourism

    Every place Peregrine visits is special – and we want it to stay that way. Our Responsible Travel ethos is at the heart of everything we do, from respecting local cultures and the environment, to initiating projects that make positive contributions to local communities. On all our tours we strive to work in a socially and environmentally responsible way. Contributing to local environmental and cultural conservation, we are not only helping the community but giving our travellers a more authentic experience, whether it's enjoying a homestay in a tribal village or sleeping in small, family-run accommodation.
