On this #ThankfulThursday, we want to take a moment to highlight and applaud one of our very favorite travel partners with whom we plan the most breathtaking journeys, Big Five Tours.
While delivering on exceptional quality experiences and service to our clients around the planet, we love that #bigfivetraveltours has embedded sustainable travel and giving back into their DNA. Their dedication to the communities in which they work and play is really shining especially during these difficult times.
Big Five is currently helping feed more than 139 women artisans and their families in the highlands of Peru and a community of over 18,000 in Cartagena, Colombia. They're also champions of anti-poaching in Kenya, free "eye camps" for the blind in India, and youth education in Sri Lanka.
"It's easy to forget that the experiences we create contribute to the economic well-being of many individuals in developing nations worldwide. Yes, that rum tour in Cartagena is uniquely fantastic, but it is also about sustaining the communities you are exploring," says Ashish Sanghrajka, President of Big Five.
"We are proud of our collaboration with Big Five to empower our clients in becoming global citizens while minimizing their travel footprint and contributing to the greater good of our neighbors worldwide," commented Suncierge CEO, Christie Soper.
