Welcome to another edition of Responsible Traveller.
In this edition we continue our road tripping…
To say that I have loved compiling this edition would almost be an understatement. I am
blown away by the wonderful stories of conservation and responsible tourism that are
to be found throughout Africa…
From the people behind the success of the Dyer Island Conservation Trust to the
conservation victories of luxury experiential travel company andBeyond. From going off
the beaten track in Tanzania to my hubby and I continuing our #GreatCapeEscape …
where we go on safari in the fynbos at Grootbos Private Game Reserve, go exploring at
the Gondwana Game Reserve near Mossel Bay and revel in the romance that is Kurland
Hotel. Kwandwe Private Game Reserve shows us that conservation and community
go hand-in-hand as does the beautiful Prana Lodge – both in the Eastern Cape. Once
again fine wines, fabulous food and wonderful wildlife tell the stories of conservation
initiatives and community upliftment.
As readers you will know that I love to travel and love exploring new destinations…
but to me the privilege of travel isn’t just in the ‘being there’, it’s about experiencing the
destination with all the senses. So the next time you travel, try seeing with ‘new’ eyes;
listening to more than the obvious – closing your eyes and hearing what’s going on
around you; talking to people – from those serving you, to those you meet on the street,
opting for local food (even if it’s weird and unusual) and touching the hearts of others –
and being touched in return.
There are just SO many reasons to love travel… and so many more reasons to do it with
care and consideration…
Enjoy the read… and be the difference.
