Why Should Go

With Us

Unlike traditional tourism, sustainable approach not only encourages travelers to explore natural wonders and culturally significant areas, but it also offers numerous benefits to the environment, local communities and the overall global ecosystem when done correctly.

Traditional mass tourism can harm the surrounding environment by an overuse of resources and disruption to local communities. Ecotourism focuses on ways to minimize these negative impacts to the area. You can do this by adhering to responsible guidelines and low-impact practices. Refrain from littering and choose greener modes of travel when exploring the area.

Funds you spend on activities, or tickets to a state or national park, aid conservation projects, wildlife protection and habitat restorations. Being conscience of how you are traveling, what you are buying and what you are eating will help with the sustainability aspect of your trip as well. Always do thorough research before booking your next adventure to make sure that you are being as green as possible!

Another key aspect of ecotourism is its emphasis on supporting the local communities that you visit. Fostering meaningful connections between travelers and locals is a crucial yet often overlooked step in being a tourist. Instead of being passive observers, ecotourists engage with the rich local culture to gain a deeper understanding of their traditions and ways of life.

At Ujung Kulon Ecotour travelers have a choice to be conscientious tourists, no matter what type holiday they take. Since the beginning Ujung Kulon Ecotour has been promoting sustainable tourism to ensure their tours bring only positive impact to the places they visit. We support sustainable development eco-tourist projects that have benefited the economic, social and cultural development of various local communities.

By participating responsible travel practices, ecotourism seeks to protect fragile ecosystems and wildlife habitats.
