OUR ETHOS

At Trunk Travel, we believe that responsible tourism is about minimizing our impact on the environment and local communities while providing meaningful and authentic experiences for our guests. Here's our approach to responsible tourism:

Use local businesses

Genuinely benefit the local economy and preferably support local family enterprises.

Wealth distribution

Ensure that wherever we go the spending reaches as many of the locals as possible.

Consider the environment

How will our travel impact this and can we ensure it benefits the environment?

Dress appropriately

here’s no need for avoidable cultural mistakes.

Think about the dining options

Are there restaurants that positively impact local communities

Use the local language

It’s incredible how far a locally-communicated please and thank you can take you on your journey.

Consider any interactions with local children

How will these trips impact them over time.

Consider the wildlife

Will any involvement with animals help or hinder their plight – read more about our Ethical Elephant Interactions below.

Minimize the carbon footprint

Where possible consider alternative transport solutions that benefit the environment.

Zero single-use plastic

We will not distribute, or include any single-use plastic on any of our trips. We will also give advice on local environmentally-friendly alternatives to all travelers.

Transparency

Offer honest and transparent information to all travelers at all times.

LOCAL

COMMUNITY SUPPORT

Trunk operates tours in many communities that require constant support for basic needs such as clean drinking water, proper waste disposal, and training and educational opportunities, and we want to help.

We feel that money is not always the answer, and therefore we believe in supporting our communities beyond just monetary contributions. We continually strive to assist local organizations, NGO’s, and Non-Profits through donations of time and energy. Through working with local authorities, and established organizations with high standards in sustainability, we and our clients are together able to make a difference in the greater good of the lives of locals and their families.

We welcome the opportunity to partner with other like minded organizations, companies, travel agents, or anyone else that feels the way we do. Let’s be the change we want to see in the world, by empowering locals and their families.
Join us on this incredible journey, where your travels become more than a destination – they become a difference.
