Conservation & Social Responsibility
Fair Trade and Responsible Tourism
Jetwing Eco Holidays’ work ethic believes in not ‘squeezing’ local suppliers of goods and services for bargain prices. This is something we, as a company, strictly adhere to. The prices of the tours of the company reflect the need to pay fair prices to everyone in its supply chain. We have a policy of paying all suppliers promptly without delaying payments to maximise interest in income and ease company cash flows. We recognise that for small local suppliers prompt payments are critical.
Jetwing Eco Holidays also promote responsible wildlife watching practices; our suppliers are carefully selected to match these criteria and our naturalist guides have been trained in the field to ensure that the welfare of an animal, bird and foliage is given top priority at any given sighting. A significant amount of time and the company’s profits are allocated to being an advocate of conservation so that the very resources the company depends on are conserved for future generations. We even encourage clients to purchase carbon offsets for their long distance travel.
