Travelling the Fair Trade way

Your holiday or vacation can make a real and lasting difference to the lives of everyone involved in it. By choosing a Fair Trade Tourism (FTT) certified product for your holiday itinerary you are directly benefitting local communities and economies and supporting tourism businesses committed to fair, responsible and sustainable tourism practices.

FTT is a non-profit organisation which is leading the way forward in the development of sustainable and responsible tourism in southern Africa and beyond. It grows awareness about responsible tourism to travellers, assisting tourism businesses to operate more sustainably and facilitating the FTT certification programme across southern Africa. 

The FTT label stands for fair wages and working conditions, fair purchasing and operations, equitable distribution of benefits and respect for human rights, culture and the environment. It also ensures that the people who contribute their land, resources, labour and knowledge to tourism are the ones who reap the benefits. 

This means you can relax in the knowledge that your holiday is not just giving you a lifetime of great memories but also having a positive impact on both people and planet
