Trekking & Expeditions

  • All campsites are set up with a designated toilet area and human waste is buried at least six inches deep and 200ft from water, the campsite and any trails. Toilet paper is carried out
  • Biodegradable soap is used for washing dishes and washing is carried out 200ft away from streams or lakes, where possible, and dishwater is then strained and scattered.
  • All guests and local personnel are reminded to leave what is found, which includes; not removing or disturbing cultural/historical structures and artefacts, not building any man-made structures, leaving flora/fauna as one finds them and avoiding introducing/transporting non-native species to the local area.
  • Respect for wildlife ensuring any animals are observed from a distance (never following or approaching them), never feeding wildlife, storing food and trash securely, and ensuring we do not alter/interrupt their natural behaviours in mating, nesting, raising young or hibernating.
  • We travel in groups of less than 8 guests when in remote wilderness regions in order to reduce our impact on the environment.
  • We protect riparian areas by camping at least 200ft away from lakes and streams where possible, we also used designated locations to camp each year to reduce our impact on the landscape. Good campsites are found, not made. We never alter a site to suit our purposes.
  • We carry out all our trash and leftover food.
  • We minimize our use of campfires, which can cause long-lasting impacts on the environment. Any fires that are made are protected by mounds or rock rings. All wood and coals are burnt to ash, the campfires are completely extinguished and then the cool ashes are scattered. As much as possible we use a lightweight stove for cooking.
  • When available we utilise any existing trails, created by man or animal, and avoid straying away from them in order to reduce footpath erosion and our impact on the land.
