The Green Seat
Our clients and partners have the opportunity to contribute towards the ‘Green Seat’, the proceeds of which go directly to the project beneficiaries we support.
We empower people in our society
We realise the impact of tourism in sustainable economic growth. We empower people in our society, and in our business. We raise awareness of the value of heritage in a way that protects and preserves our natural environment.
Through the Tourvest Destination Management Tour Guide Academy and learnership programme, we contribute to skills development and job creation, as well as to the Tourvest Destination Management family itself. The development and training of our people have earned us the Employer of Choice” title for many years. We aim to make a lasting and measurable difference in the quality of people’s lives. We activate this through community-based programs centred around education, sport and the promotion of basic human rights in all forms.
Sustainable animal welfare practices
We support our preferred partners who share our belief in complying with sustainable animal welfare practices supported by recognised wildlife conservation standards. We know that it is only in this way that visitors will continue to appreciate our precious natural treasures.
