We all at Paradise Ethiopia Travel know that our country’s image in the west is not really the same as the reality. We, therefore, strive hard to change the negative image that Ethiopia has through the provision of excellent tours and real Ethiopian way of customer handling. We do no cover-ups but expose the reality; speak no lies but the truth, and never act indifferently but behave as responsible Ethiopians in every regard. We believe that we are here to bring a change of the negative image that Ethiopia has through hard work and exposing the various tourism potential it uniquely has.
As a tour operator, we believe that we are a key element in the tourism system and that we are the link between the tourist and the destination. We are in many ways the key to achieving more sustainable forms of tourism. Therefore, we commit ourselves to adopt all dimensions sustainability practices (the environmental, social cultural and economic) in all our activities. Our main goal of sustainable tourism is to develop and manage tourism related activities and services in a way that conserves the character of our heritages, benefits local communities and preserves the resources and attractions that make destination Ethiopia the most desirable place to visit and live in. We violently move to achieve this through running responsible travel to natural areas that conserves the environment and sustains the well-being of local people, through organizing environmentally friendly travel that emphasizes seeing and saving natural habitats and historical treasures, and through encouraging heritage and environmental preservation and enhancement programs.
Conservation is at the foundation of our business, is the preservation and careful management of the environment and of natural resources. This applies to the way we consume resources in our everyday lives, as well as to the protection of biodiversity within natural ecosystems. The continued existence of human life is dependent on conservation because our air, food and water requirements are inextricably linked to the state of our environment. Conservation is not a 'nice-to-have' - it is critical for the maintenance of functioning ecosystems that support all life on Earth.
We commend ourselves for organizing authentic travel experiences for our guests with a noble idea of give something back to the communities. From the time of our inception, our mission has been to help people and communities thrive through solutions, not handouts. We do this by providing the resources and opportunities for local people in the areas we serve to develop and strengthen their communities, and our network of travelers provide these communities with the long-term income to make these solutions sustainable. We have adopted an ethical approach in our effort to improve the living conditions of the people. This social responsibility is demonstrated through employing local community members, planting trees, supporting families, and donating money to schools, health centers, etc. We consider ourselves as catalyst for change.
