About Us

Responsible Traveller  is a digital  travel publication showcasing authentic, experiential travel as well as destinations and travel businesses with an ethos of responsible tourism… in southern Africa, Africa & the world.  This publication aims to inform, educate, entertain as well as inspire its readers to make informed decisions, manage their impact on the environment, to ‘travel like a local’ and to ‘be the difference’.

Responsible Traveller is a great resource for travellers looking for authentic experiences and ‘responsible’ tourism products and services.

It is also an ideal platform for tourism suppliers to profile their environmental and community initiatives, their authentic travel experiences and the positive impact they are having on both local people, the economy and the environment –  through experiential stories written by travellers as well as by advertising on this website (email us for rate sheet and more information).

This niche publication strives to equip readers – and inspire tourism businesses – to make informed decisions on where to travel, what to do and how to be a responsible traveller.
