Accessible overview:
It is important for everyone to feel welcome on their trips with us. Everyone should have the right to enjoy travel and the experiences and we do our best to help make this happen.
Limited mobility:
We work with the lodges/hotels to ensure the properties chosen are in line with what we are looking at meaning flat ground, no stairs and in the case of stairs that our guests are allocated ground floor rooms and near the main areas. Our guides are also experienced on this meaning our guests will receive the help necessary to make their stay very comfortable.
Wheelchair:
We can adapt our safaris for wheelchair users and have vehicles which are adapted for wheelchairs, complete with foldable ramps. Also as said above we work with properties friendly to our requests for rooms suitable for those with accessible mobility needs.
Blind/ limited vision:
We have only had blind guests who have had a helper with them and are able to travel with a helper so we can then assist accordingly and our guides will definitely offer the one on one attention required for our guests. That being said if they cannot travel with a help we will do our very best to make them comfortable and fit their needs.
Deaf/limited hearing:
We are able to cater for deaf guests where our guides can handle written correspondence when necessary - however, if they require the services of sign language please let us know as we can offer this as an extra.
Cognitive conditions:
Please let us know of any cognitive conditions at the time of booking as we can yes we can cater for quiet spaces, pick lodges accordingly, organise less people in a vehicle at lodges, etc.
'Free from' food:
Guests can provide us with their dietary restrictions and we inform every lodge of allergies, dietary requirements etc. We do our best to make guests comfortable with being out of their home and not to worry with issues such as food.

Responsible tourism

South Africa luxury holiday, 14 days

Carbon reduction

Your holiday will help support local people and conservation. We must also reduce CO2. Learn about the CO2 emissions of this holiday and how to reduce them.

Environment

As a company: We strive to operate as a paperless company as far as possible, and recycle wherever facilities are available. We use toxic-free fair trade products whenever we can.
Our clients’ requirements are of primary importance to us at all times, as we know that our growth and success depend on their continued support. Having travelled extensively ourselves and witnessed first-hand how tourism can have either positive or negative effects on local communities; we vowed to always endeavor to leave a positive mark on all places we visit and send clients.

On the road: Many of the resorts and operators we work with offer our clients free drinking water refills to minimise wastage of plastic bottles through out the trips; and ask clients if they want items laundered before simply washing towels and linens unnecessarily, to conserve water.
The group will ascend both Table Mountain and Lion’s Head for a fantastic view of the city and an opportunity to learn about the extensive floral kingdom in the Cape, and how to conserve it, and to feel in touch with the natural beauty of the Cape.
At the game reserve all the guides and trackers are local to the area and have been trained by the reserve management, bettering their communities. A portion of the reserve fees go to the Save the Rhino campaign. Guests are told of this campaign and educated about the conservation issues facing rhinos and other species, in an attempt to encourage awareness, and action. The lodge we stay at is focused on responsible travel, 70% of the staff are from the local community and sources products and produce from local suppliers wherever possible. This lodge also donates a sum per person per night to a community trust fund, which is governed by the lodge, the Parks Board and community representatives.

Community

This tour has been designed to both operate in a way that minimises our impact on the environment that we visit and to maximise the benefit that our clients can have on the host community.
We endeavour to follow responsible guidelines, as with all trips. Here the group goes to a local craft market to purchase items directly from the local artisans. A tour through a local township will be led by a township resident who shares stories and insights into living in the squatter camps, and lunch will be taken at a bbq local restaurant, supporting these local initiatives. The tour of the Malay Quarter is guided by a local resident and dinner is prepared by his wife and served in their home – giving guests a rare insight into daily life in the area and supporting the family’s bludgeoning business. The time spent in the winelands includes tastings and meals at locally owned vineyards.
