What you can do?

What you can do to make your travels more responsible? Here are the most important and easiest steps....

Making tourism more responsible demands all stakeholders – from single travellers to (small, independent or worldwide) tourism enterprises – to be involved and have deep concern for the multidimensional impacts of tourism and act in adherence of sustainable guidelines.

As part of tourism you – as a traveller – can also have a significant effect by making your travel decisions more responsibly, e.g. considering environmental, social and economical effects of your travel, choosing your destination deliberately and using a responsible tour operator.


1. Be prepared for your travel


Choose your destination deliberately and get an idea about the country – about its culture and the typical circumstances – before you start. If you have some preliminary information and you know for what to be prepared, you will have a better chance to enjoy your holiday (instead of getting disappointed).

Note: if you book with us we provide you with the most important information you need to know.


2. Travel in small groups


Always travel in small groups (14 people at the maximum). Not only because small travel groups really make a difference and you can enjoy your holiday more, but because big groups are many times troubling local people and mean intrusion to their life.


3. Respect the local culture


Every country has its culture, sometimes with very different local habits and customs. Moroccan culture can also be very different from that of yours but travelling is a great opportunity to discover it. However to make your holiday more enjoyable – and to minimise the effect of your travel on the local culture – you should respect local people’s customs and habits, as well as accept their different behaviour and different way of thinking.

For example, as a sign of your respect, dress in a proper way (particularly in villages and rural places) and do not photograph local people without asking their consent. On the other hand, you can always use your hand (always the right one!) for eating even in (local) restaurants or enjoy a hot, sweet Moroccan mint tea at any time.

4. Reduce the environmental impact of your visit


Save water, reduce waste, do not waste energy – these are the easiest ways of reducing the environmental impact of your visit.
However you can also take part in protecting and preserving nature and biodiversity or reducing CO2 emissions. There are lots of possibilities and the good news is that you can start with very easy and little steps. 


5. Support local economy


Once you are in Morocco stay in local accommodations, eat in local restaurants, buy local goods (instead of imported ones) and go for shopping to local markets and artisans. This way you can ensure that your money directly supports local people instead of increasing the well-being of “outsiders”.  


6. Give back


Once you are here – or even after from back home – you can support the local community in many ways. You can bring gifts to the families you visit or people you meet (however please always ask your tour leader before giving anything to anyone) or support local initiatives by your money or even by your (volunteer) work. If you wish to support a local initiative or help local communities, please contact us.


7. Help to spread the word


Share your experiences and memories with friends, colleagues and family and promote responsible travel concept: tell people that you travelled responsibly and teach them about the importance of responsible travel.
