Responsible Tourism


Responsible Tourism

To us Responsible Travel coincides with Responsible Business, designing adventures with the local people, culture and eco-system in mind. We are very aware of the economic, ecological and ethical impact tourism can have on ancient cultures and fragile environments


We want our trips to benefit the host communities and preserve cultural heritage while having a minimal impact on the natural environment – for this purpose, we aim to continuously engage with our staff, our partners, and you, our guests.


An MND tour not only delivers a unique and unsurpassable journey for you, but it will also benefit the people whose lands we are privileged to visit.

What is Responsible Tourism :

Tourism can make the lasting effect on the economic, ecological and ethical impact on ancient cultures and fragile environments. We realise that taking clients through these regions can have a detrimental impact if not handled responsibly and as such, on all of our tours we go to great lengths to minimise the negative and accentuate the positive – after all, there are also many good things that the traveller can bring. MND makes every effort to ensure your holidays have a positive environmental, social and economic impact on the local communities we visit. We support schools, wildlife conservation initiatives and village development projects a, and favour the use of eco-friendly, responsible local hotels, lodges and guest houses along with sustainable adventure and activities.

Responsible Travel is a journey – not a destination

Carbon Offsetting Doanation

MND offers you the option to pay a carbon offset donation every time you book a tour with us that includes flights, Through these donations, we have contributed to various Solar Water Heating project, which provides in-house hot water supplies fuelled by renewable energy to homes, community buildings and small to medium-sized businesses throughout India. You can make a carbon offset donation as part of the booking process. If you have already booked, please contact us to make a contribution.

Reduction In Single Use Plastic

To reduce our consumption of single-use plastic on tours, we use reusable water bottles with an innovative built-in filtering system, to offer you a reduction on their line of products. Our aim is to protect our planet by offering a responsible alternative to single-use plastic water bottles, which at the same time will provide you with safe, clean water. We hope you will join us in our efforts to reduce the effects on the environment.

Community partnership

We will ensure that the villages are full partners in the business and participate in all matters relating to them and Village Ways. We have already enabled the formation of responsible tourism committees in each village: we will continue to support the committees by attending meetings, and acting in an advisory capacity. We will arrange for further training for committee members in tourism business skills and environmental awareness as well as practical training including health and safety, catering and guiding, as required.

Using and developing local skills

We will continue to encourage and develop the use of local skills, already deployed in the building of guesthouses (funded by grants and loans from Village Ways), for maintenance and management of the guesthouses, and for providing hospitality and food for the guests. We will promote the development of villagers' craft skills, providing training where necessary and guidance in selling craft products.

Reduction In Single Use Plastic

The Indian sub-continent harbours some of the world’s most extraordinary wild landscapes, from the snow bound mountains of the High Himalayas, to the wet mangrove swamps of the Sundabans, from the teak tiger forests of Madhya Pradesh to the elephant jungles of the Western Ghats and the desert sea shores of Gujarat. We want our clients to Enjoy it all – and use your travels to help us conserve it all. MND gives donations and participate in events that promote Awareness about Tiger conservation.
