We're embracing The Great Reset at Asian Adventures! This means taking a fresh look at our working systems, sustainability policies, ecotourism training, and more, to commit to nature and spirituality in new ways.
The Great Reset will elevate our offerings to you, and our beloved guests, and continue our mission of promoting responsible travel.
Here are just some steps we are taking on this great journey:
Reworking systems and processes
At Asian Adventures, we're dedicated to sustainable tourism practices that benefit not only our guests but also the environment and local communities. That's why we're constantly reworking our systems and processes to reduce our carbon footprint and work more sustainably. From minimizing waste and single-use plastics to making our tours more immersive and sustainable, our revised systems ensure that we continue to make a positive impact on the planet.
Fixed departure tours
Our fixed departure tours within India and overseas offer an unparalleled opportunity to not only witness the beauty of wildlife and landscapes but also to engage in conservation efforts and deepen our connection to the natural world. We believe that tourism can and should be a force for positive change, and our tours are designed with this principle in mind.
Led by our team of experienced tour leaders, guests will have the opportunity to explore a variety of diverse ecosystems, from lush rainforests to vast savannas, and observe the unique flora and fauna that inhabit these regions. Our guides are not only experts in wildlife observation, but also in the science of conservation, and will share their knowledge and insights into the efforts being made to protect and preserve these ecosystems.
Overall, our fixed departure tours offer a unique and rewarding travel experience that combines adventure, education, and conservation in a way that is both meaningful and unforgettable. Join us on one of our tours and experience the beauty and wonder of the natural world in a whole new way.
These short immersive and sustainable holidays across Asia offer a variety of experiences, including birdwatching, wildlife viewing, rural community projects, and more. You may be visiting some part of India for work and wish to go for a short guided outing, this is the website to visit.
Nehar Sahibi EcoFarm
We are currently deeply involved with the team of Nehar Sahibi farm in Najafgarh, near Gurugram for the rejuvenation of biodiversity. The farm is getting a revival with organic produce, a wild area for native birds and small wildlife, and an eco-friendly plan. Not only will this help create awareness among people, but it will also give those who love nature a great place near the city to visit and spend time. We believe that preserving nature is crucial, and by implementing sustainable practices and providing a safe haven for wildlife, we are taking a step in the right direction. Our farm is dedicated to growing organic produce, which not only tastes better but is also better for you and the environment. With the wild area for native birds and small wildlife, we are creating a biodiverse ecosystem that benefits everyone.
Global Wildlife Fair Marketplace
This online portal is designed to provide a platform for individuals from all backgrounds and interests in natural history. Whether you are an experienced researcher or simply someone who loves spending time in nature, this website caters to your needs. The portal features an extensive collection of books covering a wide range of topics related to natural history, including wildlife, ecology, botany, geology, and more. Additionally, the website offers an array of wildlife equipment, from binoculars and spotting scopes to bird feeders and trail cameras, to help enthusiasts explore and document the wonders of the natural world. If you are an artist or photographer, you will also find a diverse selection of artwork and photographs that capture the beauty of nature. The online platform also provides a space for individuals with a passion for natural history to connect, share ideas and experiences, and expand their network.
Global Wildlife Fair 2025
We are excited to announce that the Global Wildlife Fair in 2025 will be a momentous event that promises to be the largest of its kind. The fair will bring together a diverse range of participants, including ecotour operators, local communities, ecotourism experts, and conservation professionals, to create a global network for ecotourism. The aim of this event is to promote sustainable tourism practices that benefit both tour operators and local communities while minimizing negative impacts on the environment. The proceeds from this event will enable us to help the Wildlife Trust of India (WTI) to take forward their noble work on the conservation of Asian Elephant corridors.
At Asian Adventures, we strive to offer our guests authentic, memorable, and enjoyable experiences while minimizing our impact on the environment and believe in sustainable tourism that benefits the environment, local communities, and our guests. That's why our office and lodge teams are currently undergoing various training modules to work more sustainably and responsibly. From waste management and water conservation to community engagement and responsible wildlife viewing, our team is dedicated to making a positive impact on the planet.
We recognize the importance of having well-trained guides who not only have the knowledge and skills to lead tours but also have a deep appreciation for the natural world and a commitment to conservation. That is why we are committed to training more guides in the months and years to come, but we are also focused on ensuring that our training programs are comprehensive and effective.
Our training programs will not only equip guides with the necessary skills and knowledge to lead tours but also instill in them a broader understanding of natural history as a whole. This means that we will emphasize the interconnectedness of all aspects of nature, from geology and botany to wildlife and ecology. Our aim is to ensure that our guides are not just knowledgeable about specific areas or species, but have a holistic understanding of the natural world.
Another important aspect of our training programs is our focus on local conservation. We believe that guides have an important role to play in promoting conservation efforts and educating visitors about the importance of preserving natural habitats and protecting wildlife. Our training programs will emphasize the importance of responsible tourism and how guides can help promote sustainable tourism practices that benefit both the local community and the environment.
Ecotourism training for tourism stakeholders
Asian Adventures is committed to promoting sustainable tourism practices that benefit both the local community and the environment. To achieve this goal, we have partnered with Planeterra, an organization that specializes in developing community tourism initiatives that generate income and provide economic opportunities for local communities.
Through this partnership, we will identify and train potential tourism stakeholders in the community, including individuals and groups who are interested in starting tourism-related businesses. We will provide them with the necessary skills and knowledge to develop and manage their businesses effectively, with a focus on sustainability.
By providing training and support for local tourism stakeholders, we aim to create a sustainable tourism industry that benefits the local community and the environment. Our approach is designed to empower local communities, creating opportunities for economic growth and development that are environmentally friendly and socially responsible.
Partnering with Planeterra and WaderQuest
Partnering with NGOs like Planeterra and WaderQuest that are already making significant contributions to the field of ecotourism will provide a significant boost to our own efforts in this area. This collaborative approach not only allows us to contribute to their commendable work but also enables us to learn from their experiences and apply those lessons to our own projects.
By working closely with established NGOs, we can gain valuable insights into the challenges and opportunities in the field of ecotourism. We can learn about the best practices, successful strategies, and innovative solutions that have been developed by these organizations, and use that knowledge to inform our own efforts.
Association for Conservation and Tourism
The Association for Conservation and Tourism (ACT) has been active for many decades, working to help North-eastern communities living in and around natural, cultural, and historical heritage sites earn a living and improve their economic condition in a sustainable manner by becoming tourism stakeholders. Among our many associations working to help local communities, it is a great privilege to be able to take ACT’s work further and help create a sustainable tourism industry.
Furthermore, collaborating with NGOs provides a unique opportunity for us to engage with the local community and understand their needs and perspectives. We can work together to develop initiatives that are aligned with their priorities and goals, ensuring that our efforts have a meaningful impact.
