At Wild Frontiers we do more than pay lip service to Responsible Tourism – we have been committed to it since our very beginnings and have also established the Wild Frontiers Foundation to support and develop community projects in destinations we visit.
To us Responsible Travel coincides with Responsible Business, designing adventures with the local people, culture and eco-system in mind. We are very aware of the economic, ecological and ethical impact tourism can have on ancient cultures and fragile environments. We realise that taking clients through these regions can have a detrimental impact if not handled responsibly and as such, on all of our tours we go to great lengths to minimise the negative and accentuate the positive – after all, there are also many good things that the traveller can bring!
A successful Wild Frontiers tour not only delivers a unique and unsurpassable journey for you, but it will also benefit the people whose lands we are privileged to visit.
Our Responsible Business Policy
We guarantee that when designing our tours, we utilise our own experiences to break down barriers, and provide ethical business for those lesser known areas with so much to offer. We pride ourselves on challenging perceptions and raising awareness through low impact experiences and ethical business. Read more...
As well as our focus on environmental and cultural tourism, the wellbeing of all wildlife and its natural habitat is also very important to us. We don’t offer elephant riding on our holidays and we abhor animals being exploited or put to any unnatural uses. We are also members of TOFTigers, helping to protect tigers, wildlife and wilderness in the Indian subcontinent and benefit rural communities through sustainable nature tourism. Read more.....
"We were also pleased to see that our tour did not use elephants to get to Amer fort, with less enlightened organisations we could have just taken an elephant without thinking about the consequences." - Rosie & Alan Sharpe
Working with Communities

Going Paperless for Good Causes
Wild Frontiers is donates £5 to the Wild Frontiers Foundation for every client that chooses to ‘go paper-less’ and receive their travel documents by email instead of post. Each month we tot up the fivers and donate the funds to a particular campaign or project. See who the money is benefitting.
Wild Frontiers has teamed up with The Hope Foundation and UK based partner restaurants to launch the Eat4HOPE campaign in support of street and slum children in Kolkatta, India. By simply adding £1 to the bill at partner restaurants we can help young people out of poverty. Read more
"It's great to be involved with an organisation that does not always take, but also gives back" - Tim Hughes and Julie Harris
Road Testing Water Filter Bottles
In an effort to do our small part in helping to cut down on plastic water bottle waste while travelling, Wild Frontiers launched an initiative to road test portable water filters among our tour leaders and travellers. See what our guinea pigs thought….
Offsetting with Carbon Clear
Trying to do our bit for the environment, in 2005 we were among the first UK-based travel companies to automatically offset every client’s international flight (if booked with us) with a payment to Carbon Clear to help promote sustainable energy.
