Who We Are
We were called by the unique and irreplaceable beauty of Madagascar. Anyone who has heard the calls of an indri lemur or stood among the otherworldly limestone towers of Tsingy de Bemaraha Strict Nature Reserve will understand how Madagascar can touch the soul.
However, traveling to a beautiful place isn’t always kind to the environment or the local people who call these places home. Land is eroded under well-trodden paths, wildlife scared off from their territory by eager tourists, and local people are exploited or ignored by big business. With these issues in mind, we asked ourselves: how can we travel better? In finding an answer to that question, we decided to craft tours that respect both nature and people.
One Planet Tours is changing the future of travel by investing in the wellbeing of our shared planet. As a social enterprise we envision a transformation of the travel industry where every tour significantly invests in the marginalized communities of the host nation. Going on one of our tours can mean both a great adventure for our guests and the construction of schools in the country they visited—building memories and a brighter future.
Putting the planet first means that each of our small group tours are intentionally curated to promote sustainability in the host community. When you book a tour with us, you are investing in the future of the planet by supporting quality education, sustainable livelihoods, and environmental conservation.
Doing the right thing while providing an amazing getaway is our passion. We are here to create and organize customized, eco-friendly tours to Madagascar. Our team is young, vibrant, and responsible. We can bring your vacation dreams to life before, during, and after your stay!
At One Planet Tours, our goals are purposefully aligned with the United Nations’ Global Goals for sustainable development by reducing exploitation through protecting the environment and promoting wellbeing for individuals and animals.
Our guests will enjoy the trip of a lifetime! With us, you will have both an amazing experience and the reassurance that the decision to travel truly improves this One Planet that we all share.
