Responsible Tourism is about “making better places for people to live in and better places for people to visit”. Traveling responsibly is thus about managing travel and destinations in an environmentally and culturally responsible way and designing tourism programs and individual trips carefully, to provide travellers with the experience they seek, while leaving a positive footprint on their destination (Leslie, 2012).
Contested regions and related spaces like refugee camps are not always the most inviting destinations for travellers. However, even though conventional tourism may not even exist, some forms of travel do exist. Attention to tourism in these places is scant (Timothy, 2010) and as a consequence there is lack of knowledge about these types of visits, whether they are instances of responsible travel, or about what is responsible travel like in this type of contested places. It is, thus, the aim of this paper to contribute to fill this gap by looking at the history of one of the oldest cases of place contestation in Africa: Western Sahara.
