Responsible tourism

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we screen every trip so you can travel knowing your holiday will help support conservation and local people.

Environment
For all customers who book an African tour, we advertise and encourage use of a Water-To-Go carbon filtered water bottle so you can drink the tap water which reduces the risk of getting ill by 85%. This dramatically reduces the number of single use plastic bottles.

Kruger National Park, which we visit on this trip, is managed by an organisation called SANParks. One of their core pillars is to deliver and promote Responsible Tourism – the organisation has a significant role in the promotion of South Africa’s nature-based tourism, or ecotourism, and strive to expand tourism products and the generation of additional revenue for funding of conservation and socio-economic development, of which our clients visiting these parks are contributing to.

We operate a ‘leave no trace’ policy in the national parks, archaeological sites, monuments and other sensitive areas; these should be treated with the upmost respect to maintain them for future generations. Our guides are trained to promote this message in Africa.

As the focus of this trip is walking, we aim to leave a minimal impact on the areas as possible. This trip actively encourages customers to reduce the carbon footprint to a minimum. This includes not deviating from designated walking areas so as not to upset ecosystems irrespective of the size. We encourage customers not to feed birds or other wildlife as they become reliant on tourists.
Community

The Impacts of this Trip

We work with local operators who share our commitment to responsible travel where possible. They take pride in employing and training only locals, to ensure money ends up in the hands of the guiding community. Our local partner continues to nurture their staff with regular and ongoing training and skills development, as well as creating as many employment opportunities internally as they can manage.

Some meals are prepared by our guide as opposed to always eating in the hotels and lodges. We purchase supplies, where possible, from the less frequently visited urban areas to help contribute to the smaller, local communities instead of the larger urban areas.

Our local partner has an ongoing initiative to provide basic human needs like food, shelter and health care which, in Africa, are all too often found wanting in the places we visit. Another focus is to support and help uplift rural communities.
