PRACTICING RESPONSIBLE TOURISM
Awarded Silver status by the Wilderness Foundation’s Green Leaf Environmental Standards two years in a row, means Tourvest Destination Management not only protects the environment but uplifts local communities, promoting real grassroots socio-economic development.
Subscribing to responsible tourism, we are committed to reducing our carbon footprint; recycling where we can, adopting innovative green practices and supporting truly empowered procurement.
Our partnership with the Wilderness Foundations Green Leaf Environmental Standards provides our clients and suppliers with a dynamic online environmental management system that offers responsible social, economic and environmental solutions.
Together with changing our patterns and structures, we are offering travellers the option to contribute towards reducing their own carbon footprint, as well as supporting the war against rhino poaching by purchasing a ‘Green Seat’ prior to travelling on our touring vehicles, the cost of which is dependent on the tour duration.
These funds accumulated and distributed to accredited partners, will then be used to buy and plant trees, as well as training and equipping rangers to fight Rhino poaching. These are just two initiatives amongst many that allow clients to travel responsibly through Southern Africa.
