Responsible Choice

We've hand-selected a range of tours and stays across the world that go above and beyond to be a force for good by supporting local businesses, educating staff, challenging local norms, or promoting conservation and biodiversity efforts. Your Responsible Choice helps increase the positive impact of your trip.

Situated overlooking the Dana Nature Reserve, Dana Guesthouse is a charming locally run hostel. The Guesthouse is basic but comfortable; most rooms have a large balcony facing the valley and the restaurant has a large outdoor area which is perfect for birdwatching and enjoying the sunsets.

A buffet dinner is served nightly with typical Arabic fare designed to suit the healthy appetites of the hikers who are regular guests. The rooms are basic, but all have en suite facilities.

The guesthouse is primarily eco-friendly, and a community project designed to allow the residents of Dana to continue to live in the area, unlike many of their families and friends who have moved away from the remote area into the cities searching for jobs. Please note that the RSCN do not serve alcohol in their reserves.
