Gonana African Fair Trade Travel
We are passionate about Africa, and aim to create lifelong memories! All of our destinations are hand-picked for their quality, superb experience and commitment to Fair Trade. Our team has over 15 years’ experience of tourism in Southern Africa, and we take pride in offering our clients tailor-made holidays that always exceed expectations. With a team made up of Scandinavians and South Africans, we offer the highest standard of service coupled with excellent local knowledge.
We encourage you to travel to South Africa despite the current concerns about air travel and the environment. Your holiday will contribute to a better life for many people in South Africa through the contributions we make to charities (see below) and also though our commitment to work with suppliers that create jobs and care for the environment. However, emissions from air travel are real. Therefore, we add R150 per person on your invoice to purchase a tree from Trees for Tourism. This initiative plants indigenous trees that not only help alleviate carbon dioxide, but also enhances biodiversity and protects the area from erosion and wild fire.
By travelling with us, you help us to support a number of charities in South Africa.
These are the organisations that are particularly close to our hearts:
Pinocchio Creche provides early childhood development for the children of domestic workers in the Sea Point area.
