Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: South Africa highlights holiday

Environment

Wildlife:
During this trip there will be amazing safari opportunities in Kruger National Park. We have taken care to ensure we are game-watching in the most responsible way. We use a trusted and experienced guides who understand the importance of protecting the wildlife. The crew will educate groups about the wildlife within the national park.

Water:
The West Cape region of South Africa is going through it's worst ever drought and after a research trip in January 2018 to understand the extent of the issue locally, we have been working together with suppliers, hotels and our ground team to ensure our groups are using the minimal amount of water possible without negatively impacting our itineraries. All leaders brief groups on arrival about the importance of conserving water, offer top tips on how to do so and explain the current situation locally to aid understanding.

As a travel company we are continually looking for ways to improve and are proud to be ‘Responsible in everything we do’. Education is key, and so all staff, Tour Leaders and partnering suppliers are trained in responsible and sustainable tourism. At our Head Office, we continually strive towards a sustainable and planet-friendly working environment, including having solar panels installed and a company commitment to reducing our plastic usage.

Community

Friends and Neighbours:
This trip includes a Soweto Township Tour in Johannesburg which is an ideal opportunity for visitors to learn about the controversial history of the apartheid from those who lived through it, as well understand current, urban living in one of South Africa's largest cities. There is also a later opportunity to visit another township while in Knysna along the Garden Route. The aim of township tours within our itinerary is to educate visitors, empower residents and invest back into the communities.

During the trip three national parks are visited; Kruger, Tsitsikamma and Table Mountain and 1% from all entrance fees and any activities booked will go to the community levy. The levy will be invested in clinics, schools and other much needed infrastructure to benefit communities within and surrounding park boundaries, with a long-term aim to build sustainable relationships between residents and visitors.

As a company we have valuable and longstanding partnerships with UK charities Toilet Twinning and Send a Cow, plus many smaller initiatives and projects around the world. We’re members of the UK travel industry body AITO because we believe it’s important to share our knowledge and experience, as well as learn from other operators.
