Why to travel with us ?
Community tourism is our main activity, and it will bring you at the heart of an authentic India :
We offer to our guest the opportunity to discover the Indian culture from a unique and fully-immersed perspective. You will meet local organisations and people and become a true international by doing so. Our people and their programs are set amongst green hills, banks of unique backwaters, serene beaches, delightful climate, and you will experience diverse cultures and life styles. At Kabani, we invite you to discover why villagers are proud of their land and culture and are willing to share it with you. This mutual interaction between you and your host is the start of a journey to the past – to rediscover and respect our environment and heritage.
India is a country full of surprise, national treasures and unspoiled places. Unfortunately this beautiful country is threatened by side-effects of mass tourism, such as the exploitation of local communities and local resources. Especially in Kerala, a state with little industrialisation, tourism is often the only employment opportunity. Home stays and medium enterprises are all self-employed and we are dedicated to pay them fair prices. It increases their standard of living and provides education to their families. As tourism is a cyclical industry we strongly encourage them to keep their previous job to ensure a sustainable source of income (considering tourism as an additional income).
We advocate a tourism which is ecologically friendly and thus we encourage our partners to be involved in programs to preserve and enhance the nature. You will live a deep immersion in the heart of the nature. We are promoting local and environment friendly transportation and do not advertise tours that could damage the environment.
