We think luxury travel can be responsible too.

At Wayfairer, we want our impact on the beautiful places and wildlife we visit to be positive. Responsible travel is at the heart of what we do so we work closely with local communities to ensure the people and wildlife our business touches are left better not worse from our interactions with them.

We support properties and service providers that understand their impact and take steps to actively manage and reduce their footprint, and to support local communities and conservation efforts. Over the years we’ve come to know and love a number of properties and organisations that are excelling in their efforts to make a positive impact on their environments. 

If you’re looking for a trip that will open your eyes to conservation efforts around the globe, a trip where you will have a chance to not only learn but become an active participant in conservation activities and that will support the projects that need it the most then you’ve come to the right place. 

Meet orphaned elephants in a remote sanctuary in Northern Kenya, learn about and get involved in predator research in Ruaha National Park in Tanzania, witness, first-hand, the marine conservation efforts of independent Seychelles organisations, or learn about whale monitoring in the remote reaches of Antarctica. There's a huge variety of opportunities, around the globe for your travels to make a notable, positive impact. 

Our luxury travel specialists are passionate about responsible travel and can suggest lots of ideas to make your trip more sustainable. Remember that all of our trips are tailor made, so don’t hesitate to get in touch with one of our travel specialists and, together, we’ll craft a travel itinerary that is entirely unique to your needs.
