ENVIRONMENTAL GUIDELINES: These guidelines help in reducing the impact on the environment, minimize the possibility of animal suffering and stress, and encourage respect and appreciation of other cultures and traditions.

>>Hotel/Campsite - Keep in mind that another party will be using the same site after you have left. Leave the site cleaner than you found it.

>>Do not Fuel the Fire- Always discard matches with great care but also keep the use of wood for fuel to a minimum. When possible, take kerosene or an alternative fuel source for cooking and heating purposes.

>>Remove litter- Burn or bury paper and carry out all non-degradable litter.

>>Keep local water clean - Avoid using pollutants such as detergents in streams or springs. If no toilet facilities are available, make sure you are at least 30 meters away from water sources, and bury or cover waste.

>>Plants should be left to flourish - Taking cuttings, seeds and roots is illegal in many parts of the world. Also remember the trade in many wildlife products is strictly illegal.

>>Help your guides to follow conservation measures.

>>When taking photographs - Respect privacy - ask permission and use restraint.

>>Respect Holy places - Preserve what you have come to see, never touch or remove religious objects. Shoes should be removed when visiting temples.

>>Giving to children encourages begging - A donation to a project, health center or school is a more constructive way to help.

>>You will be accepted and welcomed if you follow local customs.

>>Clothes - Loose lightweight clothes are preferable to revealing shorts, skimpy tops and tight fitting action wear.

>>Visitors, who value local traditions, encourage local pride and maintain local cultures. Please help local people gain a realistic view of life in Western Countries.

>>Stay on Track - Unsupervised off road walking can cause irreparable damage to the soil and vegetation, all for the sake of that once in a lifetime shot. In many areas trekking and wild life safaris are popular leisure activities. By carefully keeping to marked paths and routes, human impact can be kept to a minimum.
