As a Fair Trade approved tour operator we pride ourselves on delivering on the promise of responsible tourism in and around South Africa.
A world in one Country, South Africa is one of the world’s most diverse and fascinating countries, with a range of experiences to enthral every visitor, whether they are looking for a Big Five adventure in the Kruger, a cultural immersion, a culinary escape or an artistic revelation. And while the options for accommodation, activities and experiences are endless and travellers are spoilt for choice, with no real hard and fast rules about what is a “must-see”, there is one rule that is easy to follow in South Africa: Sticking to the principles of Fair Trade Tourism.
We are proud to offer a number of tours that incorporate Fair Trade Tourism activities.
The Fair Trade label stands for best practice responsible tourism – defined by fair wages and working conditions, fair purchasing and operations, equitable distribution of benefits and respect for human rights, culture and the environment.
There are some amazing accommodation options around Southern Africa who are “going green” by using water pumped from nearby lakes, solar power for electricity, and wood and thatch for infrastructure and décor. The appeal of camping safaris is also on the up because these create much less of an impact on local environments.
By choosing a Fair Trade accredited product or partner you are directly benefiting local communities and economies, and supporting tourism businesses committed to fair, responsible and sustainable tourism practices.
