Explore ecotourism opportunities in the Cape winelands
- South Africa is a world leader when it comes to sustainable wine production and biodiversity conservation, courtesy of the establishment of the Biodiversity and Wine Initiative in 2004.
- One of the ways that Cape wine producers have achieved this remarkable turnaround is by getting together to form conservancies and developing ecotourism activities in the winelands.
- For wine lovers seeking the human side of conservation, Dreamcatcher is a Fair Trade in Tourism South Africa-endorsed ‘alternative’ winelands ecotour that visits wine estates with a proven commitment to their employees. It also provides opportunities to live and cook with the local women from the area.
EcoDestinations – Africa
- Africa is known as the “cradle of civilization”. Significant archaeological sites have discovered human’s oldest fossils on this continent. Found here are numerous rock paintings, depicting ancients symbols, figures, and animals, that are not to be missed.
- There is so much potential for people to achieve some good during their travels, especially on ecotourism vacations. In the year 2000, British tourists spent three billion pounds (or nearly five billion USD) on travel in developing countries, which is almost comparable to the amount that the British government gave in aid in the same year.
