This holiday season, give the gift of travel and a one-of-a-kind experience to go on an adventurous ecotour, while also giving something back.
Every ecotour purchased through Terra Incognita Ecotours dramatically changes lives in every location they visit. “Terra Incognita isn’t based on profits, like most businesses are,” says founder Ged Caddick.“We measure success by how much we’re able to give away – the more the better.” Terra Incognita Ecotours has donated more than $165,000 to charities in more than seven countries.
With destinations like Belize, Borneo, Brazil, China, India, Kenya, Rwanda, Madagascar and Tanzania, ecotours attract travelers who want to visit the most extraordinary parts of the globe and give back at the same time. For example, Caddick sits on the board of The Gorilla Doctors, a conservation project where veterinarians provide hands-on medical care to sick and injured mountain gorillas living in the national parks of Rwanda, Uganda, and the Democratic Republic of Congo. With only 880 mountain gorillas left in the world today, the health and well being of every individual gorilla is vital to the species’ survival.
These unique adventures are the perfect gift for that friend or family member on your list that has everything. “We travel to the most exotic places and have encounters with endangered wildlife. It’s the stuff that bucket lists are made of,” Caddick said. “And the best part is, we donate a substantial percentage of every ecotour to the local communities and conservation charities that so graciously host us.
So instead of another toaster oven or some expensive jewelry this year, consider giving the gift that gives back as much as you receive – charitable adventure travel to exotic destinations all around the world.
