OUR COMMITMENTS FOR HUMAN AND RESPONSIBLE TRAVELS
The respect of nature, animals and humans is of capital importance to us.
We are committed to an environmental and spiritual ecology.
Sri Lanka is a paradise of biodiversity. It offers a luxurious tropical vegetation, mountains, rivers, beaches of dreams. Nature gives all the best it has to offer : Plants, spices, flowers, trees, fruits, vegetables… The nation’s immense natural reserves shelter a multitude of different animals. Elephants, of course, leopards, crocodiles, numerous species of birds populate the island and a multitude of fishes cruise the waves far from shore.
This splendid environment must be preserved. Sri Lanka takes action for that to happen. For example, it’s the first country to have registered the entirety of its mangroves after having tragically realized the importance of its multiple virtues as a buffer zone between the ocean and the land.
As for us, we have decided not to offer activities pertaining to the observation of whales and dolphins in particular at Mirissa or Kalpitiya. Indeed, motor boats charged with many touristic groups track whales and dolphins. That which should have been a moment of tranquil observation becomes nothing else but picture hunting. Whales and dolphins are very sensible and flee far from shore where they can be caught in the cargo boat’s propellers.
In the same way, we have decided not to caution certain practices of the Pinnawala park. We privilege the respect of animals and all living beings. As a consequence, we don’t offer visits to this park. To allow you to see the elephants, we prefer to propose the Millenium and the Udawalawe park.
The sea turtle is our favourite. She’s our symbol, our spirit animal, you may say.
We support all actions leading to its protection.
Of course, things aren’t set in stone. Things don’t stop moving. Your observations guide our actions. So that life here in Sri Lanka be always synonymous with Liberty and Respect.
We would also like to preserve spiritual ecology. Which means favouring the conditions of your well-being before, during and after your trip. You can count on us to accompany you in the preparations. We are at your service during the entirety of your trip in order to ensure your total serenity. At your return, we make sure that you’re satisfied so that your most beautiful memories stay with you for a long time !
