Trees for Tourism

Trees for Tourism (part of the South African Reforestation Trust), is a vehicle for tourists and companies affiliated in any manner with the tourism industry to counterbalance the tourism-related footprint. To achieve this aim, Trees for Tourism facilitates the purchase by tourists and tourism related companies of indigenous trees, to be planted out in old woodland and appropriate degraded areas to re-create pristine forest eco systems, safeguarded for future generations.

The tree type used can vary according to the layout of the land area and the water source anticipated in the growth phase. Trees for Tourism has selected the Platbos Conservation Trust, Farm 215 and Grootvadersbosch Conservancy in the Western Cape as the operator for the selection and preparation of appropriate reforestation sites, planting of trees and decade-long maintenance of the sites to protect the juvenile forests from fire and re-encroachment by alien invasive vegetation. TDM has donated over R297 000 towards reforestation, resulting in 2 626 trees to be planted, through Green Seat for the period 01 November 2012 to 31 October 2019.

SANParks Honorary Rangers

The SANParks Honorary Rangers is the official SANParks volunteer organisation, functioning according to a memorandum of understanding between SANParks and the Honorary Rangers. They also have the ability to monitor the poaching situation nationwide and predetermine the next priority area and act immediately by deploying the necessary support to the targeted areas.

Being the only tour operator officially partnering with SANParks HR, Tourvest Destination Management show its support by joining the fight against the ongoing and merciless slaughter of our rhinos in South Africa and ensure that future visitors have the privilege of seeing these magnificent animals in their natural habitat. Tourvest Destination Management has donated R700 000 towards anti-rhino poaching through Green Seat for the period 01 November 2012 to 31 October 2019. The funds have been used for providing fuel for helicopters, sniffer and tracker dogs, patrol equipment, training, and for GPS dog collars for the Kruger K9 operation.

Endangered Wildlife Trust

Conservation Canine Project provides canine support to the conservation sector. This benefits not only rhinos, but also other species that are targeted by poachers including elephants and plains game poached for bush meat. The goal of this project is to ensure that conservation canines are strategically placed across South Africa’s private, provincial and national parks, contributing to the protection of its wildlife. Dogs are trained in detection, tracking and patrolling.

Tourvest Destination Management is also directly supporting the training of a rescue puppy – Pirate, to become a conservation canine under the guidance of Shay Seebran (EWT employee) and Fury (a 6 year old male German Shepard). The People in Conservation Programme aims to improve the relationship between residents and their natural environment including the wildlife on their doorsteps. They empower people to take action to reduce their eco-footprints and contribute to conservation through education and awareness.
