Get Africa Travel is concerned with sustainability and social responsibility. Together with our partners, we work to protect vulnerable natural areas, combat the extinction of wildlife, support local communities and work with people in vulnerable areas.

SUSTAINABILITY

We always seek the most sustainable choice for our guests and experiences of high-quality nature experiences. Therefore, we use local guides, visit accommodation (lodges / hotels) with a focus on a low environmental footprint, suggest activities such as beach cleaning on Thonga and visits to local projects.

We are working towards becoming Travelife certified. This is a certification system for sustainability that is adapted to tour operators. Our goal is to have Partner status by the end of 2022

PROJECT: MABIBI GET AFRICA UNITED

Mabibi is a small community of around 3000 people on the pristine coast of Maputuland, in the far north of KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa. Everyone who works at Thonga Beach Lodge has grown up in the village and tourism is therefore essential for community employment. Already in 2010, Get Africa and previous guests started to get involved in supporting the local football team in Mabibi. Here we have annually arranged a football tournament, cross-country running for girls, basket ball, Christmas package distribution.

Later, we have become even more involved, and together with the organization Isibindi Foundation and Get Africa guests invested in several community projects here. During the pandemic, we have distributed food and sanitary items to needy families in the area and focused on improving the school offer both by improving the building stock and the individual student.

During the autumn of 2021, Get Africa has been involved in building a new roof for the primary school in Mabibi. Of 103 pupils in primary school, 16 girls and 17 boys cannot afford to pay for school uniforms and school supplies. Our goal is to be able to cover the school expenses for these 33 students and in the long run help to hire an extra teacher. Today, there are four teachers of over a hundred students.

You are welcome to spread joy, a better schooling, good attitudes and positive experiences in Mabibi!

QUALITY

For us, quality means offering authentic experiences, unique accommodations, qualified guides, great service, local food and drink. Quality does not have to mean that the journey becomes more expensive.

Our goal is to inspire you to choose quality over quantity.

TRANSPARENCY

The safety and well-being of our guests is crucial. We have over 23 years of experience traveling in Africa. With a presence and office in South Africa, we are never far away if something happens along the way and can react quickly. We have a large network in Southern Africa and offer transparent terms and conditions.
