We believe that real ecotourism is all about education - teaching the masses about our ecosystem and how best to leave as little impact upon it as possible.
Most people consider deserts to be 'dead' - not only are they not 'dead' but they are incredibly rich and fragile ecosystems that need to be protected even more than many others.
Marks left by careless travellers in the desert can remain for generations. A simple tyre track will damage the important and brittle crust that holds the desert soils in place and may even change the course of a small stream bed thus diverting what little available water there might have been away from small plants and shrubs that have grown to depend upon it. Even bio-degradable waste which one may commonly discard in much wetter climates will not decompose and may upset finely balanced equilibriums.
