Responsible Tourism in Morocco
All our team here at Specialist Morocco care with a passion for the future of our amazing planet, its wildlife and its people. We are an ethical organisation that adheres to the principles of responsible tourism and sustainable travel, fair trade, business ethics and corporate social responsibility. We recognise that our responsibility extends to all interested parties to this business including not only our customers and local partners, but also local host communities, our planet, its wildlife and nature.
Our Local Partners in Morocco
Specialist Morocco works in close partnership with several locally owned and managed companies in Morocco. We feel this approach has a more direct benefit on the local distribution of income from tourism. We support and fully endorse the recruitment and training of local guides, local group tour managers, drivers and representation staff.
Employing Local Guides & Leaders
With our guiding principle of employing local people wherever possible our guests see a direct benefit in the improved local knowledge of our local team, whether that be knowledge of flora, fauna, history or just general Moroccan life. Through this approach we can also maximise the amount of your tourism revenue that is delivered directly into the heart of the local economy, whilst at the same time providing our guests with a holiday which is fully financially protected by our bonding schemes and insurance cover.
Promoting Responsible Tourism
Specialist Morocco is also determined to do what we can to help minimise any negative impacts on the environmental, wildlife and cultural welfare of Morocco through promoting responsible visitor behaviour; promoting waste reduction; facilitating cultural exchange between guests and local communities; supporting local businesses, goods and services; encouraging guests to eat local foods rather than imported foods; encouraging the conservation of natural resources like electricity and water; and promoting the importance of protecting the local environment and nature.
Recognising the many benefits that tourism brings to countries, we offer travellers the opportunity to compensate towards the environmental impact of their flights by supporting projects which aims to reduce levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2). These involve renewable fuels, land acquisition/protection and reforestation programmes whilst offering many other advantages for local communities too.
