Responsibility

Based on our past experience, we have focused on and guided the sustainable development of tourism. Our aim is to offer genuine nature experiences that support wildlife conservation and creates economic opportunities for the local society. We have applied a strict policy to reduce, reuse and recycle whenever possible, for example: We work actively to reduce our driving distances by staying at local guesthouses close to the points of interest and on most tours, we stay several days in the same areas. We inform and encourage our guests to choose public transport or our collective transfer services whenever possible. Our boats are run on electric engines and the batteries are recharged on clean energy hydro-power. We are trying to recycle almost all of our waste. We separate all plastic, paper, metal, electronics and batteries and take it to the communal recycling stations.

Business Case

Mu Cang Chai Ecolodge aims to prove that sustainable nature-based tourism with a focus on wild animals can be a substantial income for communities in rural areas. We are as local as anything can get. We work and trained local guides and locally owned accommodations and restaurants. This creates jobs in rural areas and also provides you with a much more authentic experience. We ask the restaurants to cook our meals made from locally produced ingredients, for example, smoked wild boar or grill fish and local vegetable. We train local guides to understand the various forms of interaction between humans and wildlife. There are many conflicts that must be solved and it is important to understand the various aspects and to get the bigger picture in order to find new solutions. Our aim is that each one of our guests will return home with a deeper knowledge and understanding about our wild animals and how one can act to preserve nature.
