There are three key components to every Ecological expedition: enable authentic immersion within nature, leave a tiny carbon footprint, and actively engage communities. We don't use single-use plastics, we eat locally grown whole foods, and hire staff from nearby communities. Each program aims to educate and inspire people through a sense of oneness with nature and wildlife.

"

The Inertia people did a great job in planning and executing the Socotra trip. Matt and Nicole, in Socotra, managed to be consummate professionals, looking out for us and tending to every detail, all the while maintaining an engaging, and engaged sense of warmth, patience, and casualness. The local Inertia crews, in Cairo and in Socotra, were also patient, responsive, and extremely helpful. I am looking forward to my next Inertia trip."

CUSTOM

 

 

CREATE YOUR OWN PROGRAM

Looking for a truly immersive experience in nature and wildlife for your group or organization? We invite you to work with our Ecological team on creating a custom expedition in some of the world’s most incredible national parks and nature reserves.

Custom Ecological expeditions take advantage of our network of dedicated fixers, guides, expedition leaders, and coordinators from some of the world’s most remote and difficult corners to bring people together, promote harmony with nature, and feel one with wildlife. All this while supporting local communities and leaving a tiny ecological footprint.

 
 
 
 
 

"

This is the last place we have left in Indonesia where Orangutans live in the wild. Here, almost half the people in the community work with tourists. This is why the jungle stays. If we get mre touists here, people will have more jobs, so this is really helpful for us to keep the jungle, to keep the nature, to keep the wildlife. If no tourists come, the only way to make money is to cut the jungle down."
