SUSTAINABLE Partners & experiences

A Core of Sustainable Partnerships and Experiences

We work hard to develop respectful, long-term relationships with local partners who are just as engaged in sustainability and ethical business practices as we are. From accomodations to activity guides, our partners are carefully selected and share our core values.

As well as partnering with local businesses where possible, we strive to deliver travel experiences that are both authentic and focused on sustainably. We want our guests to enjoy activities and encounters that are enriching and beneficial for them, their host communities and the planet as a whole.

Protecting the Wild in Wildlife

Enchanting Travels is constantly seeking out experiences which allow our guests to appreciate and support the natural world. We’re actively involved with numerous organizations that promote animal welfare and conservation, particularly those that help the world’s most vulnerable and endangered species. 

Just like humans, animals deserve to be treated with respect and care. While we do not endorse trips to zoos or wildlife parks that have animals in captivity, we do encourage visits to organizations with rescue animals that are being rehabilitated. Responsible nature tourism is a major part of our animal welfare policy and our guests enjoy wildlife experiences that not only support national parks and conservancies but the local communities who live near them as well.

Safaris are a major feature of many of our itineraries and we believe that, when done well, they can provide invaluable education about the natural world. When you go on a safari – either on land or by water – with Enchanting Travels, it’s important to know that everything always happens on the animals’ terms. No sightings are ever guaranteed but trying to spot wildlife in their natural habitat is all part of the fun!

Planning a Sustainable Journey

Sustainable Experiences & Partners

Planning a trip of a lifetime that’s also sustainable couldn’t be simpler with Enchanting Travels. In addition to promoting activities that support local communities and animal welfare, we minimize the carbon footprints of our trips by partnering with South Pole for carbon credits.

Choosing the right accommodation is another vital part of traveling responsibly. We use an icon in our proposals to let guests know which of our hotels, lodges and safari camps are known for their sustainability. We partner with smaller, locally-run establishments where possible, especially those that reflect and appreciate the heritage, culture and natural environment of their unique location.

The Power of Partnership

We’re often told by guests that traveling with Enchanting Travels is like exploring the world with a friend. This personalized service is made possible thanks to the extraordinary suppliers, tour guides and accommodation providers we choose to work with. 

Few things are more powerful than a strong partnership. We’ve spent years forging relationships with sustainable partners who are well-known for delivering ethical and enriching experiences. From luxury hotel groups like CGH in India to smaller, family-run safari lodges in rural Kenya, there are so many amazing businesses we are thrilled to introduce to our guests.

Travel for all: Accessible Vacations

Let's start planning your dream trip!

We believe everyone – regardless of their health, age or individual circumstances – should have the right to travel. Wherever possible, we will accommodate special requirements in our guests’ itineraries, whether that’s step-free accommodation options for wheelchair users or arranging additional health services.

Thanks to our tailor-made approach, we can design an accessible travel itinerary that’s perfectly suited to your individual wants and needs. While some of our destinations may be unsuitable for all, we’re always happy to provide exceptional alternatives and ensure you enjoy the best experience possible.
