  3. Reviewer: located in Chicago, IL USA
    This trip captured our souls and will live with us forever.  Our daughter still talks everyday of the Masaai people in the Sinya camp who carried her during our stay.  Our son bores anyone who comes through our door with our slide show.  We all look at our pictures and pinch ourselves…..were we really there?!  Did we really watch and listen as a mother lion “spoke” to her cubs and they sassed back?  Did we really see giraffes, monkeys, elephants and zebra….all in the same spot?!  Could we really see for hundreds of miles across the savannah?!  Could the sky hold any more stars and has the Milky Way ever been clearer?!  Could the people have been any nicer!?  It is all like a magical dream…

Our commitment to sustainable travel

MISSION STATEMENT FOR JOURNEYS INTERNATIONAL

The JOURNEYS INTERNATIONAL mission is to set a standard for innovative travel to remote destinations in order to:

1.    support traditional cultures and natural environments
2.    provide travelers with personally meaningful experiences
3.    encourage cross-cultural understanding


CODE OF ETHICS
JOURNEYS International Eco Policy outlines high standards of respectful, environmentally and culturally-conscientious behavior. These are our expectations for ourselves, our partners and the projects we support.
Adapt and fit-in with the local culture 

Observe, but do not disturb natural systems.  Learn proper local etiquette and observe all locally established rules and regulations for conduct. Learn the names of your project leaders and hosts and a little of their native language. Determine from your guide the most culturally appropriate way to reciprocate for local hospitality.

Act directly to accomplish conservation 

Minimize your impact on the environment: Conserve water and minimize usage of non-biodegradables. Do not buy or consume animal or plant products harvested from unmanaged wild populations. Advocate for sustainable use of the natural environments when visiting a threatened eco-system. Join local conservation organizations and make donations to organizations working to preserve cultural heritage and natural environments. Discuss conservation with your friends, family, and children.

Support Sustainable Businesses

 Do not patronize accommodations, organizations, vendors, operators, villages, or individuals who violate environmental regulations or cultural principles. Support businesses that work with local communities to preserve culture and their environment. Purchase souvenirs from the original makers and do not drive an excessively hard bargain.

Embrace Diversity 

Realize that no culture is better than another, just different. Listen and learn; do not preach or criticize cultural practices. Celebrate the uniqueness of each culture.
