Edition 1 – 2018

Filed in 2017, Uncategorized by on April 15, 2018

Welcome to another edition of Responsible Traveller.

In this edition we consider responsible tourism as a vehicle for realising peoples’
hopes and dreams…

We explore the coastal splendour of southern Mozambique and northern
KwaZulu-Natal and discover how the dream of a few good men and women
makes a difference to both individuals and their communities. In keeping
with this we revisit the story of five Eastern Cape farmers who saw the need
to conserve not only the land and their family heritage, but also contribute
meaningfully to their local communities.

Responsible Traveller digital mag has the privilige of once again being a
media partner for WTM Africa – and proudly feature it’s Responsible Tourism
programme: the speakers and panelists, programmes and topics of discussion as
well as the list of finalists for the African Responsible Tourism Awards. Compiling
this edition has once again made me exceptionally proud to be part of this
change for good within the tourism industry.

But as I have said on numerous occasions, the responsibility of being a
responsible traveller lies ultimately with the person travelling and the choices
they make. It’s about choosing to not waste water, to switch off when you leave
the room, to stay, shop, experience and eat local… thereby providing employment
and contributing to the local economy. By choosing to have conversations with
locals and experiencing the ‘real’ destination, you add value and return home
with irreplaceable memories.

Enjoy the read… and be the difference.
