At Bamba Experience, we believe that travelling has a huge impact on people’s lives. Not only on our clients’ lives, but also on the lives of the local people in the communities we visit. We know that our customers are sensitive to the impact we all make on the environment and on local communities, so we have made sure that our #1 priority is to follow sustainable travel practices and responsible tourism.

From day one, Bamba Experience understands the importance of corporate and social responsibility. As backpackers ourselves we have been in our clients’ shoes and as business owners, we also identify with our local business partners. We are aware of the opportunities to develop sustainable tourism in every corner of our planet and of the positive long-term effects this can have.

True Local Experiences & Contribution:

Bamba Experience aims to include activities that promote sustainable tourism like the family homestay at Lake Atitlan, Guatemala, going out at night on a Salsa tour in Havana, Cuba, eating dinner with a local family in Nha Trang, Vietnam or visiting a local school on the Lares Trek in Peru. We love searching out these incredible experiences so you can truly experience the local way of life and have the opportunity to give back to the communities in which you travel. There are endless ways to contribute to local communities by giving a small food or clothing donation, sharing a piece of your country and culture with them, or buying locally made handicrafts.

Preserving the Environment:

It is important to remember that as travellers we are responsible for our actions and their effects on our eco-system. All of the transportation options included in our trips are by way of public transportation such as buses, shuttles, ferries and trains. By using existing means of transportation in each country, we avoid creating additional pollution, therefore reducing our carbon footprint to a minimum. We are in the process of implementing a carbon offsetting program in which clients can participate by making a voluntary donation through our website. (Coming Soon!) In the meantime, here are a few recommended websites to explore:

MY CLIMATE - http://www.myclimate.org/
CARBON FUND - http://www.carbonfund.org/
COTAP (Carbon Offsets to Alleviate Poverty) - http://cotap.org/

Volunteer Opportunities:

Our clients are often eager to participate in responsible tourism and one excellent way they can do this is through our volunteering programs. We are constantly searching out new ways to help by finding volunteering opportunities around the globe.

Social Responsibility By Donating 1% Of Our Profits To Charity:

Bamba Experience gives back to our worldwide community by donating 1% of our total profits to charitable organizations.

Partnerships With Local Businesses:

We offer trips on every continent of the planet, which means we have a worldwide impact. We take care in searching out local partners who make it their priority to uphold sustainable tourism standards with a positive impact on their communities. We require our suppliers to abide by local laws and regulations including operating with the proper licenses and insurance coverage.

Creating jobs worldwide:

By working with local operators, we increase demand for their services substantially, which in turn creates a need to hire more employees locally. Instead of sending someone from overseas, we prefer all new-hires to be locally interviewed and trained so we know we are having a positive impact on the community.
