Ecotourism is an insightful, mindful and participatory travel experience to natural and cultural environments, assisting the well-being of the local cultures and environments for future generations. At the same time ecotourism produces viable economic opportunities for the host areas.
Eco-Resorts supports the earth-one journey at a time. Regionally, we promote small, unique East African camps and lodges, which are involved in assisting their local communities and protecting their local environments. Locally, our Kenyan offices are completely self-sufficient. We generate our own power using a wind turbine and solar panels; we also collect rainwater. Booking with Eco-resorts protects East Africa's environment and local cultures from extinction. Be an eco-tourist and make a difference!
