Carbon Offsetting

How We Offset the Carbon Footprint of Your Holiday

We are increasingly aware of the impact that our daily lives have upon the environment. Almost everything that we do creates some kind of “carbon footprint”.

As part of our Travelling Well programme we ensure that every holiday that we arrange has a positive impact, actively benefiting the people and places that you will visit, as well as more than offsetting its entire carbon footprint.
 
These positive impacts will be spelt out in the tailormade itinerary that you receive.

Climate Care
To offset each holiday’s carbon footprint we work in partnership with Climate Care who have over 20 years’ experience in this field. They are involved with 300 climate related projects in 54 countries.
Climate Care
We provided them with details of various tailormade holidays that we arrange and told them that our aim is to more than offset the international and internal flights, light aircraft, game drives, transfers and the accommodation. Climate Care advised us that by doubling the offset required to cover the international flights we would more than offset the footprint of the entire holiday.

Fuel Efficient Stoves
We have agreed with Climate Care than our carbon offset funds will be applied to fund projects to provide fuel efficient stoves in Africa. These are far more efficient than traditional means, using a fraction of the wood and charcoal fuel. They also create far less smoke and pollution within the home which helps improve the health of people. They also reduce external pollution and create jobs.

What About Premium Flights?
Flying in the more spacious premium cabin increases your share of the footprint caused by flying. If you decide to travel in premium economy, business or first class we will increase our contribution to Climate Care and will continue to double it, so the amount of offset will be correspondingly greater for the entire holiday.
