We want to inspire you with destinations and exceptional experiences that are leading the way for wildlife and environment conservation. The year 2020 presented itself full of challenges, but also encouraged a new and more mindful approach to travel.

Explore a greater appreciation for our wildlife and environment with Voyages & Journeys. Have a look to some of our exceptional accommodations that allows you to experience first-hand how to support the local wildlife and environment. [Costa Rica] Lapa Rios Perched on an ocean-facing ridge in the midst of a 4 000 square meters private rainforest reserve, is an inspiring model for the protection of biodiversity. From the soil to the skies, at Lapa Rios there is life wherever you look, the surrounding verdant world is teeming with creatures (big and small), many iconic and others yet to be discovered. Their mission is to demonstrate that responsible tourism can be profitable and therefore a successful vehicle for ensuring wilderness preservation, providing the ultimate immersive experience into one of the planet’s most biodiverse locations. Discover extraordinary primates and macaws in many colours and sizes, while learning about the local wildlife and help protect its endangered environment. Being a protective barrier for Corcovado National Park, Lapa Rios preserves and protects the regional flora and fauna. A balanced combination of opulence and unique experiences that allow you to appreciate the importance of conservation. [Maldives] Velaa Private Island Hidden between the many paradise islands of the Maldives, in the middle of uninhabited islands lies Noonu Atoll, an isolated private island with an amazing preservation project. They use an exceptional coral gardening concept which is a two-stage process for coral propagation. In the first phase, the corals are grown in a nursery environment where they can increase substantially in size due to the little to no predation, increased water flow, good light availability, lack of sedimentation and removal of competitors such as algae. Once the corals have reached substantial size, they will be “transplanted” back to the reef. This is the second stage and is essentially the process of gluing the coral back on to the reef. All throughout this process, they monitor the corals health and growth rates. [Norway] Wolf Lodge Hidden in the world’s most northern wildlife habitat is the innovative Wolf Lodge, located offering exceptional wildlife experiences. Visualize yourself standing face-to-face with the curious golden eye Arctic Wolf. The Norwegian wild wolf populations have been under pressure for years with a single pack of 25 individuals remaining today. Polar Park established wolf visits to educate visitors and locals on the need to preserve the nation’s nature and to ensure better welfare for wolves in captivity. The wolves are socialised and accustomed to be with humans at close range. They might welcome you by licking you in the face like they do with their pack members. The wolves like being touched. Join our specialist and learn about these majestic animals in their natural environment and gain an unforgettable insight into their behaviour before returning to the tranquillity of this extraordinary lodge. [Rwanda] Singita Kwitonda Lodge Encounter one of the most extraordinary success stories at the Kwitonda Lodge. Rwanda has one of the fastest growing tourism sectors in Africa today. The lodge property is located on the edge of Volcanoes National Park, the most heavily patrolled national park. It has significance as the home to one third of the world’s remaining mountain gorillas, a critically endangered wildlife population which is under the constant threat of poaching. They are currently creating a reforestation (buffer) zone between the lodge and the gorilla’s continuedly shrinking habitat, to protect them from poachers. A truly overwhelming experience! Explore the beautiful rainforest, encounter on a safe and minimum distance the mountain gorillas and learn about the importance of responsible tourism, the survival of the mountain gorilla’s environment. [Scotland] Alladale Wilderness Reserve The 93 000 square meters Alladale Wilderness Reserve is just an hour drive north of Inverness in the Scottish Highlands. Alladale’s dramatic glens, colourful hills, glistening rivers, many hill lochs, and native wildlife will capture your heart. Although strikingly beautiful, the Highlands are not what they once were. These barren lands used to be home to lush pine forests and large predators. Few people know that just 1%t of what the Romans called “the Great Forest of Caledon” remains today. As a result, much of the flora and fauna that once thrived here, have disappeared and the landscape has altered dramatically. The Alladale rewilding advocates work hard to rewild this unique part of the Highlands to its former glory, reintroducing original plant and wildlife species such as the Scottish wildcat, red squirrel and the golden and white-tailed eagles. Join a guided ranger tour to search for wild boar, red squirrels, golden eagles and learn about Alladale’s fascinating wildcat breeding project. [Tanzania] Singita Sasakwa Lodge The Serengeti plains bursts with wildlife, including vast herds of plains game, a plethora of predators and the spectacle of the annual great migration. The Grumeti Fund is the proud custodian of more than 1 million square meters of this unique ecosystem. Ensuring the continued protection of the Serengeti concessions, situated primarily in the critical western corridor of the plains, is essential to the future sustainability of the ancient migration that defines these lands. In 2003, a combination of uncontrolled illegal hunting, rampant wildfires and spreading stands of invasive alien vegetation had severely depressed resident wildlife numbers. When the Grumeti fund took over this ecosystem they applicated an effective support that account the complex interactions between the all elements of the savannah environment, the natural function is mostly restored by their intense dedication. The result is an exceptional wilderness experience. [Tanzania] Thanda Island Thanda Island is part of research and conservation projects on the region’s sea turtles, dugongs and whale sharks, as well as the preservation and rehabilitation of the Shungimbili coral reef. The island provides a basis for its neighbouring Mafia Island’s Marine Park Rangers to patrol the western side of Mafia and several other islands to stop illegal fishing in the area. Thanda Island is deeply committed to the education and wellbeing of the young people on Mafia, including programmes on sustainable fishing and marine conservation, and the development of healthy sporting activities. We employ members from the community on the Island and offer high-end hospitality skills development and employment advancement. [Zimbabwe] Pamushana Lodge The extinction of black rhino in the area and the depletion of white rhino numbers to only nine was cause for great concern in 1998. A programme to reintroduce these species was initiated by The Malilangwe Trust when 28 black and 15 white rhinos were purchased and relocated from KwaZulu-Natal in South Africa. Since their release, these animals have been under the constant watchful eye of Malilangwe’s anti-poaching ranger team. This protection, in conjunction with a favourable habitat, has ensured that populations of both species have grown significantly over the last 20 years. The thriving population has seen an improvement of the ecology of the reserve through black rhino filling the ecological niche they held before local extinction. The programme has been so successful that Malilangwe is now in a position to send some of its black rhino to other reserves in Africa, in order to re-establish populations in areas where the species was previously poached to extinction.

Travel a bit slower A concept we indulge is an elegant and tender journey through a country or a region that allows you to interact with its culture and lets you understand your surroundings. The increase for environmentally friendly transport makes it easier than ever to travel a bit slower, for example by train or boat by an extraordinary network of historical tracks and rivers, specially through Europe. Smart packing Reducing the consumption of plastic goods is already a huge step, but by packing your luggage with only your necessary for your journey you are able to reduce your waste, try to use reusables such as the reusable water bottles that you can refill throughout your journey. Eco-valuable accommodations When we are planning a journey, we perform an extensive research to the properties and accommodations we provide, we pay attention to their location and how they contribute to their local communities. Another part we do in supporting the local community, is introducing our clients to the local chefs that transform their local products in culinary highlights. Unique Excursions that support the local economy We always try, as much as possible, to make sure we work together with local specialists and companies that contribute to the sustainability local economy. From our experience this is also the best way to provide an understanding and appreciation of the region and landscapes you are visiting, alongside those that know their surroundings the best. Support local charities Combining our journeys with the support to local charities is the ultimate way to learn about the challenges faced by the local populations. By helping them to overcome these challenges is one of the most impactful things we can do during a journey. By dedicating a bit of our time and expertise together with local organisations we can put the focus even more on conservation and environmental protection, teaching and discussing awareness about its wildlife can result in such a deep impact to protect the natural world for the next generation to come. Think about interaction with wildlife outside their natural surroundings The most impactful choice you can make as a traveller is to be aware of how you interact with wildlife and do not support organisations that use wildlife for human entertainment. We do not support sanctuaries and zoos that cause harm and trauma to animals. We highly advise against support of any type to organisation that promote riding elephants, taking pictures or walking with tigers and lions in cages, swimming with captive dolphins, or keeping wildlife for human entertainment. We have an obligation to be the voice for those that cannot talk our language and to stand for the welfare of any animal. It is our responsibility to do our background research in supporting any organisation that cares about the health, welfare and future of our wildlife and ecological diversities around the globe. We put together 10 important guidelines for being a responsible experiential travel and making attentive choices in every aspect of your own adventure. Sustainable travel can be achieved by being responsible and making the correct choices. Learning to travel mindful and more responsibly will reduce our direct impact on the environment and ecological diversities.

    Home - The Numinous - Sustainability Travelling on a Sustainable Way March-2019 We put together 10 important guidelines for being a responsible experiential travel and making attentive choices in every aspect of your own adventure. Sustainable travel can be achieved by being responsible and making the correct choices. Learning to travel mindful and more responsibly will reduce our direct impact on the environment and ecological diversities. We truly believe that, as travel specialists, we have an increased responsibility to communicate to our consumers how to implement sustainable practices. Our vacations, adventures and expeditions are hand-crafted by us taking in consideration good practices and giving great opportunities to learn, develop and thrust frontiers of responsible travel experiences. In Jasper Sigon’s own words when it comes to his adventures, “For me personal, my journey starts with the goal of integrate myself into new cultures and traditions or learning a new skill set.” It should not be crossing a checklist, but instead focus on the experience, strive to educate yourself and become well informed and create a responsibility for wildlife, ecological conservations and cultures of our beautiful planet and at the end pass it to the others - that’s the ultimate goal. Therefore, we have put together the following guidelines to see how we create a positive impact on sustainable travel as new or experienced adventures. ​ Research travel organizations that pursue sustainability travel as a core value We try to implement sustainable practices to our journeys and adventures, considering the emissions caused by flights, vehicles, marine voyages and accommodation stays. We try to reduce and optimize at the source, calculating our footprint and supporting habitat conservation and restoration projects around the world. Plan Sustainable Journeys Avoid mass tourism destinations that are highly frequently visited. This is the first purposeful decision to make in your journeys towards a sustainable travel. We always research destinations that most of the times are “below the radar”, and maybe even closure to home than you can possibly think, enabling us to travel to remote parts of the planet with a reduced impact on ecological diversities. Extend your travelling Extending your journey provides the opportunity to involve yourself in a destination’s culture and traditions. This creates a connection with the place you are visiting, rather spending your time in short periods in multiple destinations. Create a feeling that you belong somewhere just as home. Travel a bit slower A concept we indulge is an elegant and tender journey through a country or a region that allows you to interact with its culture and lets you understand your surroundings. The increase for environmentally friendly transport makes it easier than ever to travel a bit slower, for example by train or boat by an extraordinary network of historical tracks and rivers, specially through Europe. Smart packing Reducing the consumption of plastic goods is already a huge step, but by packing your luggage with only your necessary for your journey you are able to reduce your waste, try to use reusables such as the reusable water bottles that you can refill throughout your journey.
