Ecotourism is Carbon Neutral in Sri Lanka

January 16, 2015 by Khiri Travel | Filed Under: , , ,

Travelers can join exciting wildlife safaris in Sri Lanka’s national parks and enjoy well-appointed accommodations while at the same time minimizing their carbon footprint.

Discerning travelers interested in ecotourism should head to Sri Lanka. Developed carefully to minimize carbon emissions and maximize excitement, Khiri offers a 14-day eco-friendly tour that highlights incredible wildlife sightings. Seeing Sri Lanka’s fabulous national parks can be certified carbon neutral without any sacrifice in comfort or convenience. Quite the opposite: the well-appointed accommodations are intimate eco-lodges and luxury tents. Guests wake up to the sounds of nature and can meet local people who live close to the land. Local guides are employed to lead exciting safaris to spot elusive wildlife species (like big cats) on land and in the water.

We encourage more eco-friendly travel by choosing hybrid vehicles, organizing tree planting and identifying resorts that value environmental sustainability. The use of award-winning standards for calculating carbon emissions and purchasing credits, insures this overland adventure travel can stay carbon neutral.

Our press release Khiri Travel Launches Carbon Neutral Tour in Sri Lanka gives more information on carbon neutral travel on this wonderful island.
