PUG Rating


Look out for these TOFTigers PUG Marks when you’re deciding where to stay in the wild to help us ensure a sustainable future for tigers, wildlife and their local communities

The TOFTigers PUG Mark accreditation scheme, recognised by the UN-backed Global Sustainable Tourism Council, represents South Asia’s first and highest standard in eco auditing for wildlife focused accommodation providers operating in or around wildlife parks, sanctuaries or areas of outstanding natural beauty in both India and Nepal.

Our primary aim is to ensure the ongoing conservation of wildlife habitats and their protection, conservation and rehabilitation, with tourism as a conservation and poverty alleviation tool. A key driver is enabling local communities to benefit from more responsible tourism.

So while you or your clients have a fabulous and memorable wildlife safari, TOFTigers worries about the implications of visitors - so that you don’t have to.
