Our Sustainability Efforts
Together with our partners across the globe, we are dedicated to creating exceptional travel experiences that are beneficial to the planet and the local communities we visit. Here are two highlights featuring our most recently added initiatives:
Kenya tree planting project
In Kenya, a tree planting project aimed at enhancing the health of the animal habitat and recovering the biodiversity of the sanctuary lies in an important migrating corridor for wildlife between the northern and southern sectors of Tsavo West National Park. Here, we have adopted a tree for every traveler on our tour to plant, which not only helps the environment, but also the local communities who grow the seedlings.
Southeast Asia carbon neutral program
Friendly Planet contributes to a carbon-neutral program for each traveler we send to Southeast Asia, which supports various initiatives in each country, such as re-forestration, clean water, replenish mangroves, and seed coral reefs, which is equivalent to at least 10 trees producing clean air.
