How We Celebrated World Tourism Day 2019

On World Tourism Day 27 September 2019, Thompsons Africa committed to MAKING TRAVEL MATTER.

The world is looking to the potential impact our travel has on the world and powered by our not-for-profit, the TreadRight Foundation, we are making public our commitment to Make Travel Matter for the better.

Inspired by leading destinations across the globe, every one of our team members and sister companies worldwide are pledging to make travel matter. Our pledge stands for people, for wildlife and for our planet.  Together, we can work to ensure that the places we visit remain vibrant for generations to come.

Make Travel Matter Pledge

I will make my travel matter – for our planet, for people and for wildlife.

When I explore this planet, I will do my best to tread right. I will refuse single use plastics when I can and recycle what I cannot avoid. When possible, I will offset my travels.

When I meet new people, I will honor their home as I do my own and do so in the spirit of diversity and inclusion. I will purchase locally made items wherever possible and pay a fair price.

When I experience wildlife, I will do so in nature. I will not ride animals that ought not be ridden, nor support animal cruelty in any way.

Together, we will tread right upon the earth – and we will make our travel matter.
