History
History holidays suffer from an image problem. They conjure up a picture of a sedate older crowd crammed into coaches, ticking off a list of antiquity...

Holiday information

Small group tour:
Small group travel is not large group travel scaled down. It is modelled on independent travel – but with the advantage of a group leader to take care of the itinerary, accommodation and tickets, and dealing with the language. It’s easy to tick off the big sights independently – but finding those one-off experiences, local festivals, travelling markets and secret viewpoints is almost impossible for someone without the insider knowledge gained from years in the field. Those with a two-week holiday, a small group tour will save valuable planning time.

Responsible Travel

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) holiday so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.

Planet

LIGHT STEPS
We abide by the golden rule guidelines of the UK's Friends of Conservation, with local additions that in the natural environment include: - not picking flowers or removing items from the landscape,- feeding animals, - littering or deviating from paths, and in the built environment: - not wasting water, - being ostentatious with possessions or behaving disrespectfully among other cultures.

ECONOMIC STEPS
We select local initiatives such as family run hotels, owner managed restaurants and home grown suppliers, so as to unlock the economic potential of the tourism industry.
We endorse the South Africa Sustainability Seafood Initiative abiding by their approved seafood guidelines.
We support The Biodiversity & Wine Initiative that applies green guidelines to the wine industry, by preferentially choosing its members when selecting wine estates to visit.
We offer add-on travel options to extend your journey so as to mitigate the impact of long haul flights and to minimise your carbon footprint.

ECO-FRIENDLY STEPS
Administratively we undertake to lighten our impact wherever possible, by selecting low impact options, using biodegradable materials, applying recycling practices, implementing 'turn it off' policies and intentionally limiting the size of our groups.

People

OPERATIONAL STEPS
We subscribe to Fair Trade principles, being accountable custodians and an ethical code of conduct. Our tour leaders, guides and drivers are officially accredited by South African standards. We reimburse associates commensurately for their time.

SOCIAL STEPS
We are a member of the Open Africa network of Afrikatourism, a collaborative movement linking the splendours of Africa in a network of tourism routes from Cape to Cairo, with the aim of creating jobs in synergy with conservation.
We strive to promote all that is unique to the Cape and South Africa, and to act as ”good news ambassadors.”

We seek out service providers who share our vision, such as: Mogalakwena Artist’s Retreat, as well as initiatives such as !Khwa ttu San Cultural and Educational Centre that highlight issues facing minority cultures; Solms Delta Museum for its oral history focus; Grootbos Private Nature Reserve for its dedication to the Cape Floral Kingdom and eco tourism benchmarking; Bushmans Kloof Wilderness Retreat for preserving San/Bushmen rock art.
