International Travel (FIT)
operates carefully formulated eco-safaris that grants
you an opportunity to enjoy the true taste of Africa.
The program seeks to protect the attractions of the
tourism destinations while benefiting the destination
communities more sustainable. FIT acknowledges that
tourism is a Top Priority in the fight against poverty,
we seek to meet UN Millennium Development Goals such
as poverty alleviation, gender equality and sustainable
development through the use of Fair Trade Tourism.
In kenya there are various success stories of various
community based projects but most of them are not breaking
even because they are ignored by the conventional tour
operators since they are perceived to be less profitable.
Most of the tour operators want to sell the conventional
tourism products which are know as they don't want to
invest in marketing new products. Most of the marginalized
communities have embraced conservation with their two
hands and have initiated community projects from which
they are expecting to accrual tangible benefits, this
positive attitude will not last forever if the benefits
don't trickle soon. To avert this change of attitude
FIT seeks to open up these attractions to tourists since
sustainable tourism is not sustainable unless sold.
Our mission is to ensure that tourists enjoy nature,
share experiences with the local communities and contribute
to their well-being, this is guide by our motto "Travel
responsibly and touch the heart of a poor Person".
