Eco Tourism in Gambia

Arch Tours are Gambian eco tourism specialists offering all types of eco tourist day trips, eco holiday tours, bush and beach safaris and ethical travel excursions in Gambia, Senegal and West Africa.

Arch Tours are helping to create and sustain profitable ecotourism projects that benefit the tourist, the local villages and the environment for future generations. Our reputation with visiting eco tour operators is unsurpassed and we have instigated a programe of 'eco tour operator best practice' which is mirrored and respected throughout The Gambia..

Arch Tours believes that eco-travelers to Gambia and West Africa should look for the following five characteristics when visiting eco tourism sites, staying at eco lodges or while touring with eco ground tour operators.

Sustainable Conservation Projects in The Gambia

Conservation may be practiced in many different ways. Habitat preservation is one of the principal forms of conservation. Habitats may be preserved by establishing private reserves, supporting established national parks and reserves, or funding native tree reforestation projects. Although protected areas may be visited by tourists, it is important to recognise that their primary purpose is preservation.

Whenever visiting a protected area, Arch Tours ensures that your visit will be made with minimal impact.

Gambia Eco Tourism: Minimal Environmental Impact

Minimal Environmental Impact should be the fundamental goal of every eco-operator. How a hotel or tour operator manages its impact will tell you immediately if it is truly ecologically minded. Ecologically responsible businesses recycle, conserve water and energy, manage waste properly (i.e., implement composting and gray water projects), and allow guests to choose whether or not to change linens or towels daily.

Arch Tours believe that these simple efforts make a huge difference in the long-term environmental impact of tourism in The Gambia.

Sustainable Tourism Development in The Gambia

The majority of products consumed at an eco-resort should be locally produced. Furthermore, construction should be done using local materials and methods, and local organic gardens should be the source of the majority of the food served. Ultimately, sustainability means a lifestyle that is in balance and that can be maintained indefinitely without depleting local resources.

Arch Tours believes that sustainability is vital to the long-term success of Gambian ecotourism.

Community Involvement in The Gambia Tourist Industry

Community Involvement is a crucial aspect of Arch Tours brand of ecotourism. Ecotourism should generate revenue for the local Gambian economy without harming the environment. Ideally, the local Gambian community should own the establishment and employ local labour. Moreover, in addition to generating revenue and providing employment,

Arch Tours encourages eco-establishments to sponsor community development projects.

Environmental Education Projects in The Gambia

Environmental Education teaches others to be ecologically responsible. Arch Tours aims to ensure that very guest leaves an eco-holiday having learned something about environmental preservation and cultural sensitivity. This will ensure the continued growth of environmental and cultural awareness in The Gambia.

Arch Tours encourages discussion and assists in raising the awreness and importance of ecological responsibility in the Gambia
