Our Commitment to Social and Environmental Sustainability
Kagumu realizes that parts of your trip is going to adversely affect the environment (we are flying after all). With this in mind, we not only offset everyone's carbon footprint from the trip by donating our reforestation partners, we also begin to make a positive impact in other ways: We use local services for whom tourism means essential income. We support farmers whose lives are dedicated to protecting unique ecosystems called the páramos. And, we empower you to become sustainable travelers in the future.
