The passion for knowledge moves us to the most remote places

Responsible tourism, collaboration and outreach are our practical tools to try to preserve cultural diversity and empower the last ethnic groups with their own worldview.

Last Places is the fruit of 25 years of coexistence with the last traditional ethnic groups in the world. Observing, respecting, sensing and even coming to understand these societies has led us to the conclusion that their disappearance would be a defeat for humanity.
In a globalized world, fewer and fewer regions are free from the fading of their traditional way of life. At Last Places we apply responsible tourism, collaboration projects and dissemination as means to try to preserve cultural diversity, recover identity pride and empower the last cultural groups with their own worldview; with unique ways of relating to the environment that surrounds them, beautifying their bodies and interpreting the world.
In our visits to these tribal societies, we recommend following a series of protocols and guidelines of conduct in order that the interaction generates the greatest possible positive impact on people and the environment.

Our Origins

Our logo is the Mundari totem, as a symbol of passion and respect for ancestral cultures

The concept of Last Places arises from the passion for tribal cultures and the desire that they do not disappear. After exploring the last places on Earth and living with the tribes that preserve their own culture and worldview, we came to the conclusion that visiting them in a respectful way was the best way to show our admiration and to seek, together with the tribes themselves, formulas to be able to improve their living conditions and preserve elements of their unique culture.

To symbolize the Last Places project we are inspired by the sacred totems of the Mundari tribe of South Sudan.
When we first arrived in their territory in 2012, these beautiful works of tribal art were disappearing under pressure from Christian missionaries who saw these totems as tribal fetishism to be eradicated. Faced with this situation, we decided to meet with all the parties involved in Mundari culture; tribal leaders, local government, school teachers, and missionaries. At this meeting we valued the unique culture of the Mundari and the importance of preserving and promoting their art as a source of local wealth and an element of attraction for a type of cultural tourism that would bring respect and wealth to this area of South Sudan. After three days of fascinating and intense debate, it was concluded that totems, as well as other unique elements of Mundari culture, should be respected and promoted as references for new generations. The past as future value.

As a tribute to these emotional days of debate and agreements for the future, we designed the Last Places logo based on the wonderful mundari totems.

Africa’s most unspoiled tribes, unspoiled ecosystems, cultural heritage, a stunning coastline filled with beautiful sandy beaches, and a mountainous interior that gives way to deep gorges and waterfalls.


Exclusive travel experiences based on social contact and cultural immersion

In Last Places we understand the act of traveling as an immersive experience, based on coexistence and observation, which aims to understand in a more profound way the reality of a region and its peoples, trying to generate a positive impact.
To achieve this objective, we carry out a series of visits and activities around daily, festive and spiritual life, social and territorial organization, architecture, art, beliefs and customs, the economy, the ecosystem and the history of the destination as well as of its inhabitants. Last Places offers clients the means, knowledge and all the attention of its team to live these experiences with the maximum possible comfort and in a safe way.

Last Places is made up of a team of experts with 25 years of experience in the tourism sector, specialized in trips to the last places on the planet.
Anthropologists, biologists, photographers and academics are the ones who design each of the routes and accompany the clients, together with the local teams, with the aim of giving them the opportunity to live an unforgettable experience.
The passion to find more unique places, to live with the people who live in them and to know their own vision of life and the world moves us to develop an incessant investigation that, together with the pertinent surveys, allow us to regularly add new destinations, routes and experiences to our clients.

Last Places offers scheduled departures to the last places on the planet with small groups guided by our experts. We also put at your disposal the possibility of designing a tailor-made trip focusing on your interests to one of our destinations or to the one that you propose to us.

For those travelers who are looking for thematic experiences, we can offer tailor-made trips focused on their interests, be they ethnic diversity, photography, nature, animal watching, architecture or trekking.

It is a privilege to visit societies other than ours. Witness their daily life, attend their rituals and delve into their culture and traditions. The experience goes beyond the moment we share with them during our stay in their environment. It somehow transcends our lives and when we return to “our reality” we feel the impulse to deepen and reflect on the ethnic diversity that still survives outside the models of society as we understand them in our context.
At Last Places we are committed to preserving and respecting the tribal societies we visit and caring for the environment. For this reason, we offer the traveler a series of recommendations so that the experience is organic, respectful and unforgettable. Likewise, during the trip there will be brief talks on the protocol of action regarding photography and interaction in the villages.

Protocol for visiting tribal societies

Most of these behavior patterns are present in our daily environment, but sometimes when we travel they are overlooked by feeling fascinated by the desired encounter. Other recommendations are intended to protect your habits and traditions.

Greeting and introduction

Upon our arrival, and with the help of the guide-interpreter, we go to the head of the community. We introduce ourselves and explain the purpose of our visit. After a brief talk, we request permission to enter the town, interact with its people, and take pictures. The atmosphere is relaxed and everything flows naturally.


Regardless of whether the chief has granted us permission to visit his village, if we wish to access a house, barn, etc., we will, in turn, ask its owner for permission. This extends not only to buildings, but also to their lands, animals, totems, and natural surroundings. Tribal life has a broader organic meaning than we are used to and, in most cases, its inhabitants live in total symbiosis with their livestock and nature.


We will ask permission if we want to portray a person or group, addressing him or her directly. Sometimes they may ask that you pay. It is convenient to agree before to avoid misunderstandings.


We will avoid bringing them clothing, footwear, toys, plastic or objects that do not belong to their culture, which would cause an acceleration of the globalization process, contrary to the purpose of preserving their customs. Simple seemingly harmless gestures, such as giving children candy or trinkets, have hitherto non-existent consequences for them, such as tooth decay. We will opt for gifts that belong to their environment, fabrics purchased in their markets and products that they consume regularly. If we carry medicines that we want to donate, we will do so in a health center, to ensure its correct administration.

Observe without judging

Although it is difficult to carry out, it is the best way to immerse ourselves in other societies. La vivencia de haber interactuado y aprendido de la diversidad cultural será el legado que nos dejará la experiencia de acercarnos a la vida tribal.


In our trips we promote the protection of the environment. Respecting the natural environment and leaving it as we have found it, without our footprint, we will minimize the effect of our presence.
