Welcome to another edition of Responsible Traveller – in this edition we celebrate Experiential Travel…

We explore some wonderful destinations and experience what they have to offer – from the culture and traditions of the Zululand coast with its Zulu culture, history and wonderful game reserves and beaches, to the wonders of slack packing the Crayfish Trail, a beachside trail along the Cape West Coast with travel writer Di Brown and exploring Italy and Austria the sustainable way with Dawn Jorgensen and Trafalgar’s TreadRight Foundation.

We stay at the luxurious Silver Forest Lodge and discover that there’s luxury to be found in the Helderberg, with its wonderful wine farms offering wine tasting and delicious meals to pampering at the Silver Forest fabulous spas… and that conservation and communities continue to benefit from one another as another section of community owned land is added to andBeyond Phinda Private Game Reserve.

And keeping in mind that with summer comes time on the beach and the ocean, we take a long hard look at marine pollution – say NO to plastic, especially those straws in your fabulously fruity cocktails.

As we say farewell to 2017, let’s consider our blessings and look back with
gratitude.. Take a moment to think about our impact on the environment and the people we come into contact with – consider being a little kinder and live with a deeper sense of love and appreciation for those around us, not just our nearest and dearest, but those less fortunate too. And as it says in the scriptures, ‘There is greater blessing in giving than in receiving’ so be abundantly blessed this Christmas season!

Let’s celebrate the successes of 2017with gratitude and step into 2018 with joy and anticipation – let it be your BEST year yet …

Enjoy the read… and be the difference.
