We are offering a Dominica Volunteer Tourism Package in conjunction with The Tamarind Tree Hotel.
As you know, Dominica was devastated by Hurricane Maria, completely destroying the island’s infrastructure, communication systems, forests and homes, and tragically ending the lives of the most vulnerable. The ‘nature island’ of the Caribbean is home to some 70,000 people, all of whom have been severely affected by this disaster, as have Dominica’s natural sites and hiking trails. This was a tropical paradise of 365 rivers and pristine rainforest. It was home to 195 species of fern, 75 kinds of orchid, 50 types of butterflies and 176 species of bird. A few hours after the hurricane struck, most of that was gone, but the island is now recovering and is ready to welcome visitors.
This Voluntourism Package is specifically aimed at “Clearance and Restoration of the Waitukubuli National Trail” and has so far proven to be very successful in terms of what can be achieved to help the island and the participants enjoyment of the experience. We will therefore continue to offer this programme until at least the end of 2018 and more information can be found on our Dominica page, where you can also see details of a special booking incentive that we are offering at the moment.
Dominica is dear to us at MotMot Travel. It is where we, the company directors Vivianne McGrath and Gilbert Bastyra, were born and the island has welcomed so many of our clients on holiday over the past 12 years. Dominicans desperately need our help and generosity to rebuild, now and for years to come, which you can also do by visiting http://dominicarelief.org or donating at https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/dominica-hurricanerelief.
MotMot Travel has also made a generous donation and are giving £50 from every new Caribbean booking to this fund.
The Caribbean is open for business and many islands, including Trinidad & Tobago, St Lucia, Grenada, Jamaica, St Kitts and Nevis, Antigua, Barbados and Cuba are doing everything they can to help Dominica and other stricken Caribbean neighbours. The whole region is in need of our support and the best way to do this, is to keep visiting these wonderful islands.
We are very proud to announce that Mot Mot Travel won the Award for ‘Best Producing Specialist Operator in 2016’ at Saint Lucia’s Gala Awards Dinner hosted on Thursday 21st September 2017.
Nominations were provided by hotel partners and destination management companies and the winner was selected based on how the candidates targeted their niche areas and the results achieved.
