Where We Started

"Their utmost satisfaction has always come from being able to help their Canadian colleagues discover their country of origin in a responsible way"

Egypt, 2004

The project started when two childhood friends, Karim Haggar and Anthony Chamy decided to launch their business idea into the real world to be able to fight against the planet's degradation with respect to tourism.

Both founders originate from a country (Egypt) where tourism is the principal source of revenue but also the principal source of the destruction of the national heritage as well as loss of culture. Egypt, like most developing countries, does not possess the financial and human resources to properly manage its natural and cultural treasures.

Kepri sees the steady degradation of the planet's beautiful natural sites and cultures as absolutely revolting and is the major reason why the project (first as Ecotours, then renamed Kepri) was launched in the first place.

It was in the summer of 2004, after a desert expedition organized for university colleagues. Their utmost satisfaction has always come from being able to help their Canadian colleagues discover their country of origin in a responsible way with a constant perspective on sustainable development.

They adopted and diffused an exploratory and ecological travel model ever since their adolescence, thus making it simple and quick for them to commercialize their formula through their personal network or friends and family.

The business established itself for the first time with foothold on St-Denis street, right in downtown Montreal (Canada) in September 2006. These charming offices are in the heart of the Latin Quarter, between the newly built National Library and the St-Denis Theatre.

Now, with over 500 travelers that have been on 50 different trips in 10 different countries, we have created platforms for discovery and are continuously adding new destinations and trip formulas to our portfolio.
