Responsible tourism is any form of tourism that can be consumed in a more responsible way. “Responsible tourism is tourism which minimizes negative social, economic and environmental impacts and generates greater economic benefits for local people and enhances the well-being of host communities.
Responsible Tourism was defined in Cape Town in 2002 alongside the World Summit on Sustainable Development. This definition, the Cape Town Declaration is now widely accepted and was been adopted by the World Travel Market in 2007 for World Responsible Tourism Day.
Responsible Tourism is about “making better places for people to live in and better places for people to visit.” Responsible Tourism requires that operators, hoteliers, governments, local people and tourists take responsibility, take action to make tourism more sustainable.

Note: We organize Tribal and Village Tours in Madhya Pradesh based on principles of Responsible or sustainable Tourism. The packages are with the very basic amenities but close to culture and tradition of rural India.
As our responsibility towards the society and country we offer many Tour plan designed keeping Responsible and Sustainable Tourism in mind. When you take a responsible holiday you are ensuring that the money you spend stays locally, which might mean staying in a family owned lodge on the edge of a river, instead of a multinational chain behind gates. Discovering diverse eateries which not only source their food close to home but also celebrate local cuisine as part of their culture. This might be in a remote Tribal area in India like Jhabua, Dhar, Barwani, a Valley in dense Forest known as Patalkot in Tamia Thesil or near to Kanha National Park in Mandla or going river rafting, Jungle Walk or fishing with a local people.Please follow the link below for some Packages based on Responsible Tourism.
