Minimizing Carbon Emissions

REDUCING CARBON FOOTPRINTS

Reducing Your Carbon Footprint on an Enchanting Travels Vacation

At Enchanting Travels we are proud to have had more than 40,000 guests return with unforgettable memories. But over the years of our journey, we have also learnt that travel isn’t without its consequences. As a responsible travel company, we want to contribute positively to the communities we engage with and the world at large. As a step towards achieving greater sustainability, we aim to minimize CO2 emissions from any trip you take with us while simultaneously investing in carbon mitigation measures.

Minimize CO2 Emissions from Your Trip

Walk On the Wild Side: Tours Of Discovery On Foot

We aim to minimize the carbon dioxide emissions of your trip through carefully balancing your comfort with the environmental implications. You have the opportunity of choosing climate-conscious, responsible, and sustainable options when you travel with us.

Sustainable Transportation: We are happy to suggest sustainable transportation such as trains, which are not only environment-friendly but also a romantic and relaxing way to discover a region. Furthermore, we avoid flights where ground transportation offers a pleasant alternative.

Sustainable Activities: We offer sustainable activities such as walking tours, and take you beyond the tourist trails both for authentic experiences and to avoid “over-tourism”. 

Sustainable Hotels: We proactively support sustainable hotels. From waste disposal to using sustainable energy and supporting local communities and conservation projects, many of our partner accommodations have received awards for their responsible practices.

Investing in Carbon Mitigating Measures

In addition to minimizing the CO2 emissions from your trip, we calculate the average amount of carbon emissions generated by our guests’ trips and donate a proportionate amount to a climate protection project to absorb these emissions. The calculation takes into account domestic and international flights, accommodation, transport at your destination, local activities, and excursions.

For this purpose, Enchanting Travels has partnered with South Pole which has successfully mitigated over 170 million tons of CO2 since 2006!

Tropical rainforests are some of the most important stores of CO2, thus reducing the carbon dioxide concentration in the atmosphere. We therefore support the Isangi REDD+ project to protect 187,571 hectares of forested land in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Set at the confluence of the Congo and Lomami rivers, this previously deforested area has now been transformed into a REDD+ project to preserve the ecosystem, which is one of the most diverse in the world.

The day I learned that we have an opportunity at our workplace to be Responsible Travel Champions, I was super excited. For me, this was another way to give back to the society, spread happiness, and make our world a place of harmony. We all need a push and someone to motivate us to make a change – that is exactly what I am hoping to do through my role as a Responsible Travel Champion.
