The future of travel is undoubtedly sustainable. Travellers today want to preserve wilderness areas for future generations and contribute to conservation. There are many ways to do this, and sustainability is woven into all our trip plans. This luxury sojourn will take you to some shining examples of sustainable tourism in South Africa. You start with a few days at Grootbos, just outside Cape Town. Grootbos is notable for its conservation efforts in preserving the fynbos of the Cape Floral Kingdom. The lodge is also highly integrated with the local community who grow food for the kitchen and work in the lodge. From Grootbos, you fly to Phinda Private Game Reserve. Phinda is partly owned by the local Makhasa and Mnqobokazi communities and is truly a conservation success story. The wildlife and birdlife are abundant in Phinda and it offers a safari experience like no other. To end your sojourn, spending a few days at Thonga Beach Lodge in the tropical beach paradise of iSimagaliso will allow you to completely relax before returning to your busy lives.
