Best practices in responsible tourism are the key to a sustainable Kenyan tourism industry. Several tour companies in Kenya are gearing towards being sustainable, through engaging with Travelife. With the support of Ecotourism Kenya, tour operators are trained and coached on ways that they can embrace sustainable practices in their companies, for example issues on single use plastics, conservation of water and energy, waste management and incorporating policies.
On Tuesday 19th July 2019, Ecotourism Kenya paid a visit to Acacia Holidays to check on their progress as they gear towards Travelife Partner level. In-house coaching was done on how they can improve in integrating sustainability as a tour company. The company is already making strides in responsible tourism including responsible production and consumption by phasing out single use plastics and development of management tools such as a sustainability policy to steer the company in the direction of sustainability.
Are you a responsible tour operator? Think about it, make the change. Be part of sustainable tourism in Kenya and the world.
