Responsible Travel

While the tourism industry plays an important role in generating income in some of the more remote corners of the world, we also have a responsibility to help conserve our amazing natural surroundings and support local communities. At Imagine Travel, we have a Responsible Travel Policy which guides our actions with regards to three major areas – animal welfare, people and the environment. In India, one of the aspects that we feel strongly about is tiger conservation, which is why we work closely with TOFTigers in order to make sure that the safaris we offer have only a positive impact on India’s tiger population and the natural habitat in which these majestic animals reside.
