Responsible Travel Projects


At Dragoman we recognise our obligation to operate our tours in a responsible and sustainable manner. We aim to respect the environment, culture, societies and religions of the communities and areas that we visit and we encourage all our staff to take an active interest in responsible and sustainable tourism. We specifically train our tour leaders in the philosophy and ethics of responsible tourism so that they can put our beliefs into practice for you on the road.

Dragoman Supports is a programme of over 20 projects that we visit or support across the continents that we travel through. Each project is selected for its work in supporting local communities or conservation work and may even involve our travellers getting involved in such activities as planting saplings.
