Travel should create unique experiences of different cultures and environments, whilst remaining sustainable and responsible. We are fully aware of the impact that travel and tourism can have on local communities, the natural environment and the welfare of animals.
Here at Nomadic, we feel it is our duty and responsibility to respect local customs, support local communities, respect the natural environment and protect animals. We strive to provide tours that, not only offer our guests unique experiences and different cultures, but also positively contribute to the destination. This is achieved through our support of local people and their communities & aiding provincial projects wherever we can. To learn more about our community support, please visit our Associations page.
Working with our destination partners, we ensure the animals involved in our tours are provided the best possible care. We have signed up to ABTA’s animal welfare commitment and, following the advice of animal welfare experts, ANIMONDIAL and the NGO SPANA, we prioritise animal welfare protection and encourage our guests to respect animals. Alongside these guidelines is a new voluntary commitment for ABTA Members. ABTA encourages its Members to implement the guidelines by working with their suppliers to meet basic welfare requirements. We do not offer, nor do we ignore, unacceptable practices.
SPANA is a charity that strives to protect the working animals around the world. We encourage our customers to use SPANA’s Holiday Hooves guide which you can find on their website:
