Welcome to the latest edition of Responsible Traveller – in this edition we celebrate Wild & Wonderful places…

Intricately linked to people and places is conservation and communities… and where better to explore this than at Anvil Bay in the Maputo Special Reserve with its wonderful ethos of conservation and community. We ‘get back to nature’ at Thanda Safari and learn why missing a game drive is never a good idea and get the low-down on some interesting facts about elephants in the process . The Marine Dynamics team never fails to inspire with its commitment to educating the public on all things relating to marine conservation, here we join them to learn about their studies of a local ecosystem and how the science is all about ‘Discover, Protect and Educate’.

We go global with Exploration Travel in Norway with Hurtigruten, we Walk Japan to discover its culture and traditions and we discover how seeing a destination through different eyes and perspectives makes all the difference through Transformational Travel Experiences in India.
A new experience on the horizon for travellers to Mauritius is SALT, the progressive new boutique hotel brand from the creators of LUX* Resorts & Hotels – described as ‘as a humanistic approach to hospitality targeting the culturally curious.’  In sticking with the ‘new’, Three Tree Hill introduces Burchell’s Family Cottage, a new eco-cottage in keeping with naturalist William John Burchell’s interest in natural history.

But as I always say, the responsibility of being a responsible traveller lies
ultimately with the person travelling and the choices they make. It’s about
choosing to conserve not waste, to eat, play, stay and shop local… 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
