We founded our company with a belief in giving back. Simply, we want to have a positive impact on the communities in which we operate. This ambition is an integral part to our company vision. We are realistic in what we can achieve socially and environmentally, and we are honest in our efforts.
If you have an idea in how we can be better we want to know.
Intro copy and paragraph will go here. Explain overall efforts. The following paragraphs talk about eco-friendly hotels and Atmosfair.
Within our extensive yet preferred accommodation collection we seek out and offer wonderful options that are ecologically considerate and socially sensitive. Whether it’s an eco-friendly safari lodge in Tanzania, a sensitively restored palace in Jaipur, or a boutique hotel that sources its food from its own kitchen garden or local farm in Argentina – we do our best to reduce our carbon footprint.
We also have a focus on climate-friendly air travel. We support Atmosfair, a climate protection organization with a focus on prevention, reduction, compensation. Their aim is to protect the climate by compensating greenhouse gases through the use of renewable energies, among other activities.
How You Can Help: Ask our Travel Consultants for information on some of our more eco-friendly accommodation options.
Supporting Local Communities & Artisans
Through our considerate sourcing of guest gifts, we aim to support people who have been marginalized by their society by helping them to realize their potential, developing new skills, improving their own lives and gaining self-esteem.
We currently support two strong organizations in Kenya and Tanzania: Jacaranda Workshop and Shanga who employ disabled or otherwise disadvantaged people.
How You Can Help: Visit the production facilities of our partner organizations, interact with the people working there and, if you wish to do so, support them through purchasing the beautiful products they create.
The Memory Foundation
We created the Memory Foundation as a way to give people in remote areas of Africa a tangible memory of themselves and their loved ones. We leverage our frequent explorations to these remote areas with the goal of giving back to the people who don’t often have any personal photos of their families. On each trip, we dedicate a few hours in these remote villages to meet the locals, take their photos, and then print and frame the photos right there for them. It’s a small gift that we have seen is greatly appreciated.
This initiative provides the rare opportunity for our guests to interact with local people in remote areas in a unique and personal way. You leave behind long lasting memories and smiles for years to come.
Rewards & Awards Program
We are proud that we are the best paymasters in the industry and ensure rates above standard. We believe that if our team are happy then so are our guests. That’s why we have a rewards program for our guides and chauffeurs so that they financially benefit from their extra enchantment. We also hold an annual awards ceremony where financial prizes are rewarded for our best annual guides and chauffeurs.
How You Can Help: If you are especially pleased with any of our team then please tell us when you are providing feedback about your trip so that we can appreciate and reward them.
Mentoring & Internships
In cooperation with the Jubilee Scholarship Foundation, Enchanting Travels offers 3-4 months internships to high school graduates within our Africa office. We help them gain practical work experience and develop their skills so that they can either start their own business or increase their chances of future employment.
Our interns receive mentoring support to help them with challenges they are facing and help them in making career-related decisions. In the long-term, we offer full-time jobs to successful interns.
How You Can Help: This initiative also offers unusual opportunities for our guests to interact with young people and get insights into every-day life in Africa. Furthermore, if our guests wish to do so, they have the opportunity to impact a young person’s life, through mentoring and/or sponsoring their education.
