Using reclaimed and local materials and building in an Eco-friendly way, our lodges are designed as basecamps for our Wild Planet programs, coupling adventure with nature and a local Thai experience. We work with local staff wherever possible and are involved closely with the local communities surrounding each lodge. We also like to encourage our guests to get involved via our volunteer, CSR and Outreach programs.


Ecotourism is now defined as "responsible travel to natural areas that conserves the environment, sustains the well-being of the local people, and involves interpretation and education" (TIES, 2015).  Education is meant to be inclusive of both staff and guests.

Ecotourism is about uniting conservation, communities, and sustainable travel. This means that those who implement, participate in and market ecotourism activities should adopt the following ecotourism principles:

  • Minimize physical, social, behavioral, and psychological impacts.
  • Build environmental and cultural awareness and respect.
  • Provide positive experiences for both visitors and hosts.
  • Provide direct financial benefits for conservation
  • Generate financial benefits for both local people and private industry.
  • Deliver memorable interpretative experiences to visitors that help raise sensitivity to host countries' political, environmental, and social climates.
  • Design, construct and operate low-impact facilities.
  • Recognize the rights and spiritual beliefs of the Indigenous People in your community and work in partnership with them to create empowerment.


Our programs are framed in a way that promotes the active stewardship of our natural resources and surroundings and encouraging current and future generations towards its protection.

We follow the Leave No Trace vision and we incorporate the seven "Leave No Trace" principles within our programs.
We realize that this involves individual commitment and may not be embraced by all, but if we can have the student leave us with a better appreciation of the outdoors then we are some way forwards to making a difference.

We are fully aware of the healthy appetites after adventures and provide tasty and varied meals with plenty of fresh ingredients. We  serve a combination of local and European dishes while at the same time ensuring high standards of hygiene. On all our trips your good health is our highest priority. Please let us know if you have any special dietary requirements and we are happy to cater for you.
