About the African Responsible Tourism Awards

Heroes of responsible tourism in Africa will be honoured at the 2016 African Responsible Tourism Awards. Following the success of the inaugural event in 2015, this event continues to form part of the prestigious World Responsible Tourism Awards, the world's most respected responsible tourism awards. Winners of the African awards will automatically be entered into the global awards which take place at World Travel Market in London each November.

With its unique natural and cultural landscapes, Africa offers many opportunities for responsible tourism. Tourism organisations are already growing tourism that preserves, respects and benefits African destinations and African people. The African Responsible Tourism Awards aims to celebrate the efforts made by individuals, organisations and destinations in Africa. The awards also aim to inspire change in the African tourism industry.

The awards will be presented at a ceremony hosted as part of the Africa Travel Week to be held in Cape Town from 06-08 April 2016.

Winners will be announced to an audience of destination managers, industry professionals and media.
