#AFRICANTRAVELCARES

MAKE TRAVEL MATTER

Travel is an incredible gift. It has the ability to open our eyes, our hearts and our minds to the unique cultures and spellbinding beauty of the natural world. But with this gift comes a responsibility – to protect the world as we know it. At African Travel our mission is clear; to have a positive impact on the people and communities we visit, to help protect wild and marine life, and to care for the planet we all call home.

With our #AfricanTravelCares, we work with those that focus on conservation and protect the places we visit to ensure that every trip gives back to the people, wildlife and planet.  

TreadRight Foundation 

Through our partnership with the TreadRight Foundation, the not-for-profit created by our parent company The Travel Corporation (TTC), money from trips booked with African Travel goes to some of the 60+ TreadRight initiatives that align with the 17 Sustainable Development goals set up by the United Nations including eliminating single-use plastics, carbon offsetting and a tree planted for every guest that opts to use eDocs.  As part of our plant a tree initiative, we’re currently reforesting devastated land in Tanzania.

Other ways to make a difference

African Travel also works to support other initiatives in Africa.  Through the donation of sales, trips also have a positive impact on the following local communities, places and wildlife. Guests can also opt for additional volunteering or to participate directly in helping communities and conserve wildlife. 

People

We are committed to encouraging the cultures, traditions and arts of the communities we visit to thrive. We seek to enable some of these communities to see true benefits from tourism through economic empowerment. We do this through our support of micro-enterprises, and community based tourism initiatives that build positive futures for community members and their families.

Wildlife

The world’s wildlife is balancing on a dangerous precipice, so it is our responsibility to help protect some of these species most at risk from extinction. Partnering with leading wildlife organizations, we work to help protect and rehabilitate elephant, rhino and big cat populations around the world, whilst also educating our guests on ethical wildlife experiences.

Planet

Reducing the environmental impact of our business is at the core of much of what we do. We’ve committed to eliminating all avoidable single-use plastics in both our offices and out on the road by 2022. And that’s just the beginning. In 2017 we introduced our e-docs program, which allows our guests to receive their travel documents digitally, replacing the need for paper whilst also having a tree planted in their name as part of our plant a tree initiative. All of this, while supporting projects striving to keep our oceans and coastlines clean, are just some of the ways we’re committing to safeguarding the future of our planet.
