Responsible Tourism is defined as a journey which takes into account the natural, socio-cultural, economic and political contexts of the destiny in the quest to enhance benefits and minimize negative impacts of tourism.  

Responsible tourism refers to travelers, conscious of their surroundings, doing their bit to preserve nature’s wonders along their trip, all while having a good time.

The principles related to Responsible Tourism are as follows:

  • Contribute to conservation
  • Long term benefits to the local communities
  • Ethics and responsibility
  • Sustainability
  • Respect and preserve the culture
  • Small groups of visitors

Practicing Responsible Tourism helps towards:

  • Minimizing impact to the environment
  • Promoting environmental awareness
  • Providing financial benefits to conservation
  • Providing financial benefits to local communities
  • Garnering respect towards the local culture
  • Supporting human rights and democratic movements
Through the practice of Responsible Tourism, the host community participates in the development of tourism in its own area, using knowledge handed down to them from their ancestors to enhance and care for their natural environment. The tourists appreciate the place visited, its culture and its environment, and contribute towards the economic sustainability of the long-term community project through job creation and real sources of livelihood.
