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
Based on 2 principles:
The first is the need to conserve rapidly dwindling wilderness areas and to provide a sanctuary for fauna and flora as part of South Africaís heritage.

The second is the belief that the business must be a true example of eco-tourism effectively linking tourism with conservation and the community. Sabi Sabiís environmental management system is a holistic one, where the ecological needs are balanced with the needs of people and their communities, i.e. focusing on the interdependence of tourism, conservation and local communities.

Every guest pays a conservation levy per person per night which supports conservation, security and access-control and the anti-poaching initiatives of the Sabie Game Reserve NPC, a non-profit company.

In effect rangers are environmental educators, the information and knowledge that they impart to guests may in a sense also represent a benefit that transcends site boundaries nationally and internationally.

We choose eco-sensitive properties that have a limited impact on their direct environment and encourage guests to be aware of their consumption of natural resources during their trip.
Community

The Impacts of this Trip

Each team member receives ongoing training in all areas of business. The empowerment of all staff through training and development is a key policy at Sabi Sabi. They employ 170 local staff who in turn support 1200 dependents. Including most of the trackers who are local Shangaan people.

Sabi Sabi has long recognised that its greatest asset is its staff, the majority of whom hail from local communities and many of whom have been part of the Sabi Sabi story since the very beginning. Today, there are second generation employees based across the four Sabi Sabi lodges, in the hospitality and safari sphere. With this in mind, Sabi Sabi has always endeavoured to focus its community involvement on projects that benefit and involve staff, their families and respective communities.

Sabi Sabi supports the Lillydale Digital Learning Centre, Swa Vana Care Centre, Lillydale Education Centre, Mazinyane Preschool, Teach the Teachers and Dreamfields,

All our guides are citizens of the country you are travelling to and uplift members o the local community.

We hire local staff and train our employees locally.
