It maps out a trail of 12 stops with hands-on local experiences that help contribute to the communities, such as learning the craft of traditional weaving at the Bani Hamida Women’s Weaving Project, which boosts women’s rights and livelihoods in the area. Through experiences like this, I witnessed firsthand how tourism can lead social change, which inspired me to determine the ways in which USTOA members are positively impacting the communities they visit around the world.

By giving back to these communities, we are ensuring their sustainability and the opportunity for future travelers to enjoy the same experiences as our guests.

By selecting this luxury eco-lodge for our guests, we are supporting the Grootbos Foundation, a nonprofit organization that empowers the local community through education, training and enterprise development.
