WINTER 2012 COVER AND CONTENTSWelcome to the WINTER 2012 edition of Responsible Traveller…

What an awesome continent Africa is!

Wonderful wildlife, wonderful places and wonderful people – this edition gets to celebrate just a few of these spectacular places and meet with a few of these amazing people. People who are committed to conservation, ensuring that Africa’s wildlife will still be here for the next generation to appreciate and enjoy. Those that operate travel businesses, large and small, ever mindful of their impact on the environment. And those that take delight in sharing their culture and environment with travellers who take the time to listen.

Travel is not just about ticking off a wish list of places to visit and things to see and do. Responsible travel is about the experience, it’s about connecting with the destination and the people without impacting negatively on the environment. It’s about considering other peoples’ cultures to be as important as your own, learning from them and about them. Each individual you meet on your travels has a story to tell, about the projects they are involved in, the environment they live in and their experiences (often tough here in Africa, but told with a smile all the same).

The traveller who takes the time to connect, ask questions and listen will take home more than just beautiful but meaningless pictures…  they will have seen Africa’s wonderful wildlife understanding how important conservation is. They will have walked up mountains, along beaches, and in the bush, seen delicate wildflowers up close, felt the sand under foot and breathed in the intoxicating smell of the African bush. They would have had an enriching and memorable experience, for sure.

In the words of Hugo Antonio Santiago “You don’t entertain tourists in your home, you entertain visitors” – lets choose to be visitors and leave as friends.

Enjoy the read… and be the difference.
