HOW BOOKING A TOUR TO BENIN WITH ASHANTI AFRICAN TOURS HELPS
By booking any of the wide selection of Benin tours that we offer you can be rest assured your holiday will directly benefit locals and their environment. Ashanti African Tours have been leaders in ethical travel putting the local communities and environment at the heart of what we do. Through our ethical travel initiatives we have been able to build an 8 classroom school facility catering for crèche, Kindergarten and Primary school students in a coastal community. We are also currently in the advanced stages of building an 11 classroom school for 3 remote communities in West Africa as they currently do not have school facilities close to them. In addition we are sponsoring 23 community based committee members to patrol a portion of endangered upper guinea rainforest habitat stopping illegal logging and hunting activities. We are actively involved in protecting endangered and vulnerable bird and mammal species also within West Africa. Our professional and ethically run operations employ locals, source the vast majority of our products and services locally and we are passionate about giving our tour participants the ultimate authentic West African experience. Many travel companies state they are into responsible travel, however most of the time this is greenwashing to get responsible travellers to book with them. This is not the case at Ashanti African Tours and we are happy to forward more detailed information on all of our community development and environmental conservation projects, feel free to ask.
