Steppes Discovery wins award for commitment to sustainable travel

Steppes Discovery has been highly commended in the category “Best for conservation of wildlife & habitats” at this year’s Virgin Holidays Responsible Tourism Awards.

The Judges said “Steppes Discovery has continued to adapt to wildlife tourism issues worldwide. Unhappy with the Norwegian government’s recommendations on whale watching they withdrew one of their most popular wildlife viewing trips – Orcas in Norway. Their tour guides are often experts in wildlife conservation and Steppes Discovery are leaders in their campaigning for Tiger conservation through ‘Travel Operators For Tigers’ (TOFT).”

Chosen from a list of 1,765 nominees, we are delighted to be recognised for our commitment to sustainable travel. When you feel as passionate about wildlife as we do, it is not enough to offer exceptional wildlife holidays without giving something back. By joining forces with local research projects and carefully chosen wildlife charities, Steppes Discovery is able to give privileged insight into the natural world while supporting conservation and local communities. Importantly, we continue to look for emerging wildlife destinations in order to alleviate pressure from the path well trodden so if you share our pioneering spirit then keep an eye on our website and e-news for new small group wildlife holidays to Ethiopia, Zimbabwe, Cameroon and Patagonia.
