Understanding Travelers Philanthropy

Globerati.com: Philanthropic Travelers

How to make a difference abroad when you’re in the dough and not the peace corps.” –Globerati.com on Philanthropic Travel

“Some of us vacation for the sun. Or the culture. Or the hot stone massage. Or the white-knuckle ride. Or the Michelin-starred menus. But now, a new breed of altruistic adventurer is pushing the frontiers of philanthropic travel -and having it all. Just don’t confuse it with voluntourism -that’s for people with more time than money. For those who have it the other way around, the options to embrace high-end travel and keep their humanity intact are growing fast.

Exquisite Safaris, for example, bills itself as ‘the pioneer of private, luxury philanthropic travel,’ and tailors its five-star trips to destinations where clients get to interact with local communities.

As Fast Company puts it: ‘In between watching cheetahs on the plains of the Serengeti and getting pampered with spa treatments, you may spend a morning teaching kids how to read.” -Marc Jolly Founder & Editor Globerati.com
