We use portable T3 tents and portable toilets at our campsite which are cleared and wrapped up at the end of each journey.

Our camp locations are temporary and we don’t keep any permanent fixtures at the location.

We say no to plastics

Be Local – there is no harm learning at few local words while you are there. It always helps in building a rapport with the locals and blend it. Try to eat and buy locally.

Carry your own water bottles.
