The TreadRight Foundation®

At African Travel, Inc. we take great pride in creating safari experiences with an eye on working with those that focus on conservation and protecting the places we visit. As such, we are an active partner and supporter of the not-for-profit TreadRight Foundation®. Created as a joint initiative between The Travel Corporation’s (TTC) family of brands, The TreadRight Foundation® was founded with one clear purpose to MAKE TRAVEL MATTER®, ensuring our travels help make a positive impact to People, Planet and Wildlife.



Over a Decade of Positive Impact

Since its founding a dozen years ago, the TreadRight Foundation® has more than 60 projects in progress or completed that meet one or more of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals set up by the United Nations. African Travel is a proud supporter of various projects including our past efforts to reforest devastated land in Tanzania and our current focus of eliminating single-use plastics across TTC operations by 2022.  LEARN MORE

Our 5 Year Strategy: How We Tread Right

African Travel in conjunction with The Travel Corporation has committed to a 5-year How We Tread Right (HWTR) sustainability strategy which addresses our collective impact on the planet, people and wildlife, through 11 goals tied to the UN Sustainable Development Global Goals. 

HWTR is our commitment to using the power of responsible travel to make a difference on our trips and in our offices. 



Our Climate Action Plan

Goals #1 and #2 of our sustainability strategy, How We Tread Right (HWTR) respectively commit to becoming carbon neutral by 2030 or sooner, and to ensuring that 50% of our electricity is secured from renewable sources by 2025. To ensure we are successful, we’ve built a Climate Action Plan. Our five-point plan will help us manage the carbon footprint of our business and trips, and prioritizes reducing and removing emissions ahead of offsetting. In addition, we commit to learning and adapting as technology and innovation help us in our transition to a low-carbon business.

Our plan builds on progress made to date and evaluates how we become a part of the global effort to reach net-zero emissions by mid-century, as outlined by the International Panel on Climate Change.

Beginning in 2022, all our offices and employee air business travel will be offset as part of our Climate Action Plan. In partnership with our carbon offset provider, South Pole, we will compensate these emissions by investing in a verified forest conservation offset project in Victoria, Australia.  LEARN MORE
