In this section we look at positive examples of responsible and animal friendly tourism in action. All of the case study examples given are through recommendations, research or RIGHT-tourism visits and there is also a section for travel operators that have taken the RIGHT-tourism pledge.
None of the attractions or businesses mentioned have paid to be featured on this page.
We’ll be building on this page gradually as new information and reviews come in – if you’ve visited somewhere that deserves recognition for its responsible attitude and actions to animals and the environment then why not drop us a line and tell us all about it here. We are looking for a variety of attractions or businesses, such as hotels, safari companies, tourist boards – anyone that has gone the extra mile to ensure that they do not promote animal exploitation, that they put getting it RIGHT in front of profits and/or that offer good, clear and fact based advice on animal attractions and responsible tourism.

Sanctuaries and Volunteering Opportunities
It can be difficult to separate the true animal sanctuaries from places which put profits before animal welfare. With the help of responsibletravel.com, Faada and the Global Federation of Animal Sanctuaries (GFAS), we’ve put together a list of the animal sanctuaries and places to volunteer with animals which we believe are ‘getting it RIGHT’.

Offset Your Carbon Footprint
RIGHT-tourism believes that if we are to continue to enjoy many of the magnificent destinations that allow us to experience other local cultures and extraordinary wildlife at close range, we should think responsibly and do all we can to mitigate the impact that our travel and sight-seeing activities have on the environment, wildlife and local communities.
Our RIGHT-tourism dos and don’ts are an easy guide that show every traveller the steps that can be taken to can help protect the world’s wildlife. But, you can do more. By using our simple calculation table, you can ‘give back’ to wildlife and the environment what your journey has taken out.
