Eco Tourism Resorts
"Eco tourism is encourages travel to natural areas that conserves the environment and sustains the well being of local people."
IUCN (now called the World Conservation Union) states in 1996 that Eco tourism:
"...is environmentally responsible travel and visitation to relatively undisturbed natural areas, in order to enjoy and appreciate nature (and any accompanying cultural features - both past and present) that promotes conservation, has low negative visitor impact, and provides for beneficially active socio-economic involvement of local populations."


The major goals of Eco tourism resorts include:
- Contributes to conservation of biodiversity.


- Sustains the well being of local people.


Includes an interpretation / learning experience. Involves responsible action on the part of eco mantra Eco Trips / Camp's Participants and the trip / camp / expedition industry.


- Is delivered primarily to small groups by small-scale businesses.


- Requires the lowest possible consumption of nonrenewable resources. Stresses local participation, ownership and business opportunities, particularly for rural people.


- Stresses local participation, ownership and business opportunities, particularly for rural people.


Eco Tourism Resorts- Although, both adventure trip / camp / expedition are components of Eco tourism, it has stronger links to rural and cultural trip / camp / expedition than to adventure tour/expedition. In Eco tourism the prime motivation is generally the observation and appreciation of natural features and related cultural assets, whereas in adventure trip / camp / expedition it is physical exercise and challenging situations in natural environments.


- From a functional viewpoint, Eco tourism is mostly individual or small-scale trip / camp / expedition (trip / camp / expedition groups up to 25, and hotels/retreats/resorts with fewer than 100 beds) that is operated by individual families and small / medium-sized companies in natural areas. It concentrates on leading and accommodating small groups in natural areas in an educational manner through interpretive materials and local specialist guides.
