Commitments in sustainable tourism
Mauritius is at a turning point of its tourism history. Almost exclusively known for its beaches and luxury hotels, the island faces today mass tourism with tourists obsessed by all-inclusive offers and its involved disastrous consequences, especially for a small island State with reduced resources. What about our lagoon, forests, rivers, waste treatment, floods after our tropical rains whereas our drains network does not exist or is badly maintained? What about the water supply, the recycling? Being aware of these challenges, I founded Moris Otreman Slow Travel in Mauritius 3 years ago to inform and advise our visitors about a responsible tourism "off the beaten tracks", to the benefit of all. Travelling means meeting and sharing: cooking or music lessons, hiking in the nature, meeting with local artists and craftpeople, immersive experiences into the local life, such as participation to the numerous religious festivals occuring all year round. I also support different projects developed by the civil society (1,000,000 trees project e.g) and invite my clients to buy some endemic plants in that purpose. Finally, I act as the ambassador of the Feuille de Chou newspaper in Mauritius, issued by the Voyageons Autrement (ie let's travel differently) website.
