Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Self drive vacation in South Africa

Environment

This itinerary focusses on ensuring you have the perfect blend of intimate properties and romantic experiences, whilst being able to safely explore one of Africa's most exciting driving routes. Our team on the ground will be with you every step of the way to ensure you are comfortable and can enjoy yourselves hassle free.

The properties chosen hire local staff and have the very best guides whilst being dedicated to sustainability and responsible tourism. Nambiti Game Reserve, for example, is home to one Africa's leading cheetah conservation projects. KWA work tirelessly to protect Africa's most endangered big cat and whilst you are staying in the area you will get a chance to see their hard work in action.

To ensure that we are offering ground-breaking itineraries and are always keeping up-to-date with the latest developments abroad, our UK staff travel regularly to our destinations. This ‘work’ also leaves a carbon footprint and we compensate for all our staff travel by donating carbon-mitigating funds to our charity partners

Community

Whilst we are always trying to ensure our guests experience the best properties and destinations possible, our ethos about responsible travel is extremely important to us.

We have selected the properties on this itinerary with sustainable and responsible tourism in mind. In the KwaZulu Natal you will enjoy the region's food and wine whilst supporting local suppliers and traders. The hotels also make a huge effort to train and employ local staff.

We encourage all our travelers to research local customs and read your trip notes before you depart to ensure you are conscientious and respectful in a different culture. In most cases we strongly recommend that you do not give money to children beggars. If begging is a successful enterprise, parents are encouraged to forsake their children’s education in pursuit of this opportunity.

As a company we are founded in the roots of providing responsible and sustainable vacations. This means we seek to partner with local suppliers who provide fair wages, to use accommodation where community and environment are considered and to look at every opportunity for making our vacations as fair to local people and places as possible.
