Our responsibilities as privileged human beings is to pay back for the opportunities we’ve received. -
It is with great pride that Africa Travel is able to support the Grootbos Foundation in their valuable work. We at Africa Travel believe greatly in Responsible Tourism, the definition of which could be very close to the quote above. It is important for us to know that the establishments that we send our clients to are involved in getting their wider communities to contribute towards, and share the benefits achieved from tourism.
The Grootbos Foundation is involved with a variety of projects, and as a gift from Africa Travel, we have organised a free Social Responsibility tour for you when you arrive at Grootbos Nature Reserve. This short tour will introduce you to some of the projects, and show you the advantages achieved by them at the most visible level. You will be given the opportunity to interact with locals and really get a feeling for this amazing area.
In addition, we have sponsored a tree on your behalf! You will be able to plant an indigenous tree as part of the Grootbos Foundations Future Trees Project, which is doing amazingly well in re-establishing the ancient Milkwood forests of the Nature Reserve that were severly damaged in a verocious fire in 2006.
Look out for your Responsible Tourism welcome letter when you relax in your suite at Grootbos, and speak with your guide to arrange your tree planting and tour. We’ve also included a small gift that is yours to take home.
Thank you for being a part of Africa Travels efforts to be front runners in Responsible Tourism, and thereby supporting the Grootbos Foundation and making a valuable contribution to the well being of our environment and empowerment of many people.
