Hi Guys,

I thought I might give a quick intro. here.
We operate a Adventure tour and Safari tour operator in Western Australia and Norther Territories in Australia.

We have just made the decision to offset our companies carbon emission foot print.
We have joined up with carbon neutral to offset our Carbon, we have also taken a step further and we will value add to our product and plant a tree per passenger on top of our standard contribution.

Would love to talk to other tour, safari operators who have taken this approach.
We run a fleet of custom 4WD trucks and SUV's vehicles.
We can be found at:

Regards,
Dragan :D

Welcome, Dmalesic!

How in the world did you happen into that business?

Hi Iowanic,
Good question and I still have days where I ask my self the same question....LOL

The main reason why we got involved in this business was our love of the Australian outback, camping, exploration and landscape photography and showing people the unique and beautiful place we live in.

We love the Kimberley specifically and we believe it is one of the last remaining Wilderness Frontiers which needs to be preserved and protected but at the same time shared with as many people who wish to step outside their comfort zone and enjoy the Adventure it provides.

The industry also has bad parts to it and it seems to miss treat clients or not even care once they've paid their fare and it seem the big boys (Multinational operators) are the worst offenders so I've also taken up a role to educate people who wish to explore this region by starting a blog on the Kimberley (http://www.kimberley-adventure-tours.com)

I've still got enough passion and drive to keep fighting for the environment and the better good of the clients, but once that diminishes it might be time to hang up my boots....LOL

Take care and look forward to talking with you soon,
Regards,
Dragan
