Lighting the Path to a Better Tomorrow

For nearly a century, the Globus family of brands has shed light on the world’s most fascinating places and people – allowing travellers to bask in their glory, intrigue, and wonder. As we explore ancient pathways, historic hallways, and storied sidewalks of the world around us, we gain deeper knowledge, compassion, and understanding of the world and its people than ever before. 

By partnering with like-minded organisations that care for our planet and the people and places we cherish, we’re committed to playing our part in advancing causes through conservation, preservation, and humanitarian partnerships. 

While a lighthouse may stand alone, we can come together to light up the world’s exceptional places – and extraordinary faces. Enter the Globus Lighthouse Project – an illuminating initiative where we can all come together to tread lightly and give generously for the globe’s greater good. Globus, along with sister companies Cosmos and Avalon Waterways, invites our travellers and partners to help us in supporting causes that provide for a more sustainable planet and a brighter tomorrow for the planet, people, and places we treasure. 

 

IN THE SPOTLIGHT: 
The Australia Zoo Wildlife Hospital

Australia’s unique and much-loved wildlife is disappearing at an alarming rate. With help from donations from across the globe, the Australia Zoo Wildlife Hospital gives injured wildlife a second chance. One of the world’s largest animal hospitals, in one year, approximately 10,000 animals are brought here for lifesaving treatment, playing a vital role in saving Australia’s native species.

PLANET
Keeping the world in its best light

While nothing is more exciting than tracing the paths of historic legends, doing so with the most minimal footprint excites us even more. We make every effort to conserve and preserve in each destination we visit by helping to protect the waterways, wild places, and wildlife by supporting and shining a light on organisations that do the same.

Keeping the Blue Planet Green.

We love caring for the world just as much as we love sharing it with you! By booking a Globus escorted tour, you’re helping us do just that! When you travel with Globus, we contribute to environmental organisations working to improve the health of our planet. Travel confidently, knowing that traveling with Globus family of brands also generates a donation to two leading champions of conservation: The Ocean CleanUp and Trees4Travel. Globus partners with Trees4Travel to purchase a tree to be planted for each guest who travels with us. This is a small way we make a big difference in helping to reduce CO2 from the air, while keeping our commitment to bigger experiences and smaller footprints. 

The Forests for the Trees.

While a single tree doesn't make a forest, Globus believes in the power of people and their effect on the world as a whole. Enjoy the anticipation and excitement of your upcoming adventures, while making a difference in the world we discover together. You may also choose to make a personal donation of your own to The Ocean CleanUp or Trees4Travel  to help make the world even greener!

  • The Ocean Cleanup

  • Trees4Travel

Paws for Cause: Our Promise for Ethical Wildlife Encounters

The Globus family believes the world's four-legged, furry, feathered, and fragile wildlife populations are precious to our planet - and in need of protection. As part of our commitment to the welfare of wildlife worldwide, Globus has adopted the guidelines of World Animal Protection to end the use of wild animals as entertainment. By creating an animal welfare policy, we are committed to protect wild animals by not selling, offering, or promoting venues or activities involving wild animal entertainment, such as rides, bathing, walks, and shows. We will only offer responsible viewing of wild animals in the wild or semi-wild habitats and with a high standard of animal welfare and conservation.

PEOPLE
