Give back to nature and offset your Vespa Trip's CO2-emissions

This planet gives us so much (natural) beauty to admire, but if we want to continue traveling to beautiful places in the future, we have to protect our planet today more than ever. That’s why we’ve added an option in our booking forms to offset the CO2-emissions of your trip in a trustworthy and certified way via Greentripper.

What’s more, with this contribution to the Kariba project, you’ll help protect the 785.000 hectares of majestic forest and wildlife in it, and support the local communities in Zimbabwe. Every month, Greentripper sends participants the official carbon credit certificates of their compensation.
