Sustainable Travel

Create special memories through responsible travel experiences

Take only pictures, and leave only your footprints behind. We believe in travelling with a purpose and making travel matter, which is why sustainability is more than just a buzzword for us. As supporters of the TreadRight Foundation, sustainability is woven into the fabric of everything we do.

We encourage purposeful, mindful travel which respects the environment and supports local communities. We’ll give you opportunities to meaningfully interact with the people and places of Africa – from the Maasai in Kenya to local Cape Town designers at the V&A Waterfront; from spotting red colobus monkeys in Jozani Forest to taking an environmental tour of a wine farm.

At Explorer, we don’t simply support sustainable travel, we live it.

 

highlights

Nelson Mandela was imprisoned on Robben Island for 27 years. See this legendary destination through the eyes of Madiba’s prison guard, Christo Brand on a private tour of the island.

Experience vibrant township life and gain an insider’s perspective on a cultural tour with the Amy Foundation, which takes you through colourful streets and informal settlements.

Undoubtedly a highlight on any safari in South Africa, a community visit is a wonderful opportunity to learn more about the people, places and community projects we visit.
