About this book

Numerous places call themselves 'eco' or 'green', yet standards differ enormously throughout the world. This guide features those very special places that also go the extra mile to provide responsible holidays. The authors have sought out and visited people with a passion for the local culture and environment, from the heart of Borneo to the African savannah.
