In recent years, there has been a noticeable surge in global awareness regarding the environmental and social impacts of tourism. Consequently, a new trend has emerged — sustainable tourism. This style of travel goes beyond conventional sightseeing and leisure; it represents a conscientious and sustainable approach to global exploration. You get to see amazing places while ensuring all adventures leave a lasting, positive impact on local communities and the environment. It’s like sightseeing with a purpose!

Why Is There A Rise In Demand For Sustainable Tourism?

Research suggests that a staggering 83% of global travellers believe sustainable travel is vital. While some want to do it for authentic interactions with local communities, others simply want to save on natural resources. Whichever reason one may have to travel sustainably, most travellers are united in their desire to minimise negative impacts on the environment and conserve cultural heritage. Sustainable tourism, often referred to as ecotourism, also seeks to support local economies and empower communities, offering a win-win solution for both travellers and destinations. 

As a responsible traveller, choosing eco-friendly destinations is paramount in contributing to sustainable tourism’s positive impact. In this context, Costa Rica and Tanzania stand out as top picks for eco-conscious adventurers, offering breathtaking scenery, diverse wildlife and vibrant biodiversity, all while leading the charge in conservation efforts.

Costa Rica’s Green Blueprint

Costa Rica is indeed known for its stunning beaches, lush rainforests, incredible wildlife and “pura vida” surf-positive lifestyle. But what makes this Central American gem even more special is its commitment to sustainable tourism – a fundamental philosophy that guides every aspect of the country’s tourism industry. 

The country’s dedication to preserving its natural heritage is evident in its extensive network of national parks and reserves, safeguarding biodiversity and habitats. With a remarkable 70% of its land mandated by law to remain untouched, and boasting 28 national parks, reserves, and wildlife refuges, the little county has a big heart. 

Whether exploring the lush jungles of Manuel Antonio or marvelling at the majestic Arenal Volcano, eco-friendly practices are seamlessly integrated into every aspect of the travel experience. Particularly, the gorgeous country is home to incredible ecolodges that focus on providing sustainable accommodation while raising guests’ awareness about the importance of conservation. Further, these accommodations support the local community and their infrastructure meets world-class ecotourism standards.

Tanzania’s Natural Wonders And Conservation Efforts

Tanzania is another popular destination setting the benchmark for responsible and eco-conscious hospitality. The beautiful country boasts unparalleled wildlife reserves, including the iconic Serengeti National Park, home to the spectacular wildebeest migration. Travellers seeking socially responsible tourism can engage in unforgettable wildlife safaris and contribute to impactful volunteer projects. The country’s conservation efforts, exemplified by organisations like the African Wildlife Foundation, aim to balance tourism with wildlife protection.

Similarly, guests have the option to stay at sustainable campsites or luxury lodges, ensuring they enjoy authentic and gratifying experiences through practices like:

  • Waste recycling
  • Use of solar energy and other renewable resources
  • Use of local and organic products
  • Support of conservation initiatives
  • Support of local businesses
