We ensure that the financial benefits of tourism are passed down throughout the entire company, including the office staff, guides, naturalists, and the wildlife communities in which we work. We promote hotels that employ staff from local communities. We encourage travellers to use more local restaurants.
We reduce paper wastage in our office by not producing any form of paper brochures. All communications are done by email; we rarely print brochures (maybe once in 3-4 years).
We provide regular training for our guides and naturalists to ensure high standards of environmental care and responsible behaviour.
We have various office initiatives to reduce our impact on the environment and use of energy: we recycle all paper, wear thick jumpers in winter, use local suppliers whenever possible, encourage the use of public transport by staff, and strive for a plastic-free operation.
We undertake regular meetings to discuss Responsible Tourism and ensure that all staff are involved in the decision-making process and encouraged to contribute.
Travel Inn ensures that our lodge partners brief our clients about the National Park rules properly, as we are committed to creating environmental awareness, which helps provide a good wildlife experience to clients.
We work with environment-friendly wildlife lodges, follow ethical practices, and emphasize overall learning of wildlife, birdlife, environment, local cultures, tribal lives, and people around the Park. Our safaris are conducted by trained naturalists, who help prepare a checklist of sightings of mammals, birds, insects, plants, and trees as a responsible tourism initiative.
Our clients travel in well-maintained vehicles driven by experienced drivers who are sensitive to the fragile nature of the Park’s eco-system.
Our prompt payment policy ensures everyone in the chain is paid their wages timely, which keeps the ground staff happy, including park guides and drivers.
We encourage our clients to act responsibly. Our professionally qualified guides and naturalists have a great passion for their work. Not only will they tell you about the history of the places you will visit but they will also be able to tell you about the culture and the local traditions and superstitions.
Our associate offices all across India employ local people and pay them a fair wage helping to put money into the local economy.
