RESPONSIBLE TRAVEL

SCROLL DOWN

Effective responsible tourism values lie at the core of Signature Tours. The focus of our tours is often on special sites, chosen because of unique qualities. It is therefore important for us to be certain that the activities, natural places, places of accommodation, transport providers, etc. adhere to responsible tourism guidelines thereby ensuring that the impact we have in those areas is minimised whilst ensuring the greatest guest experience possible.

By booking a tour through us you either contribute directly or indirectly towards worthwhile ecological, economical and social causes.

Economical

The growth of businesses in the local communities where you travel to.

Ecological

The conservation of the unique natural habitats of our region, especially the smaller private nature reserves.

Social

The support of local communities through trustworthy programmes & focusing on cultural highlights.

What You May Expect

Through the activities you take part in, you get the opportunity to interact and enjoy true South African experiences. We take our clients to local festivals when they coincide with a holiday. During our walks we stay on well marked paths and we always take our litter home with us.

We work in partnership with local businesses & accommodation. Guests have an opportunity to visit small local businesses and we encourage clients to buy home-made products.

Our team of specialist tour guides and local experts will ensure that you have an authentic experience. The guides have wide experience and knowledge of cultural traditions & environmental issues and an ability to interpret the places visited.

As we often operate in coastal areas, we support the South African Sustainable Seafood Initiative by educating guests on buying ‘green’ seafood products. South Africa is also a water scarce country and guests are also educated on this as part of the tour.
