Taking care of the planet is a growing priority with travelers wanting to ensure there’s a healthy world to even explore. Global travel adventure company Explore Worldwide (a Hotelplan travel group brand) recently formed a climate timely partnership with Klimate and Rewilding Britain, affirming its dedication to both rewilding efforts and carbon removal within the travel industry.

Each of these companies is a founding signatory of the Glasgow Declaration, and all pledged to not stop at carbon offsetting, but go further by committing to removing carbon from the atmosphere through efforts such as Direct Air Capture projects and robust tree-planting initiatives.

“We’re delighted to align ourselves with these innovative organizations, both leaders in their field,” said Joe Ponte, CEO, Hotelplan UK. “Protecting the planet that we and our customers so love exploring is critical, as is taking a forward-thinking approach in our carbon mitigation efforts. Working with Klimate and Rewilding Britain is a significant step towards this.”

Further Explore Worldwide/Hotelplan UK efforts include financial support and resources to help Rewilding Britain, all used to assist communities with rewilding programs both on land and in the sea.

“Rewilding Britain depends entirely on voluntary donations to do our work, so Explore’s support has been a lifeline,” said Rebecca Wrigley, CEO, Rewilding Britain. “We’ve already achieved some incredible things, but one stand out is the growth of our Rewilding Network to almost 1,000 members, which means new rewilding initiatives of all shapes and sizes across Britain. We’re excited to see what the coming year will bring now with Hotelplan UK’s support.”

Pickle Up: Get in on America’s Fastest Growing Sport

Come Face-to-Face with Mountain Gorillas on a Trek in Uganda

Not a word was spoken as I settled into a cozy spot on the outdoor terrace just outside the main lodge at Volcanoes Bwindi Lodge in Uganda. The air was so still the ice in my single malt seemed to echo off the forest in the distance as it clanked against the glass. I sat among a handful of fellow adventurers, each sitting silently beneath the night sky for one collective goal. Moments earlier, we learned a troop of mountain gorillas had made their way down the mountain near our lodge, and we left our meals to instead sit in eager anticipation of hearing the guttural grunts of the primates below. The chills on my arms never left me that night, even as I made my way up a stone pathway to my personal banda (guestroom). Thankfully, sleep came quickly for me that night as I drifted into dreams of what my next day would bring.

Amantaka Review

You know what you’re going to get at an Aman hotel, and also you don’t. Expect peerless service, obsessive attention to detail, architectural elegance worthy of a fashion magazine, a holistic approach to wellness and astounding levels of comfort. But each property is also intimately connected to its setting, and that’s where the surprises lie. For instance, finding yourself on your knees on a sidewalk in Luang Prabang handing out sticky rice to Buddhist monks at 5:30 a.m. isn’t something we expected.
