Conservation Travel

This is the new way to travel and and it’s the only way, if you want to help save the Malayan Tiger, Pygmy Elephant, Orang Utan and many other endangered species.

Unlike eco-tourism, a much abused term these days, the purpose of conservation travel is crystal clear: your visit will contribute to the protection of local wildlife. It will deter poachers in the area and support local communities to earn a living from tourism. What’s more, all our tours include a DIRECT FINANCIAL CONTRIBUTION which is tailored to your chosen level of participaton
