Social Responsibility

Social Responsibility


Over the years we’ve been involved with, and have had links to a variety of social and environmental responsibility projects and organisations. We are very aware of our privileged position in the economy of Southern Africa and we realise that we have the potential to support worthy causes and NGOs by committing to monthly contributions (as we do with Home from Home)  as well as connecting international visitors and their generous dollars to organisations such as UTHANDO and Hoops 4 Hope. We have partnered with preferred suppliers to support Rhino protection funds as well as Gorilla Habitat Regeneration initiatives.  Being a small team that has been together for a long time, we’ve taken on causes and charities that resonate with the individuals in our office, for example a family Soup Kitchen operation and the Santa Shoebox Project.

Tree planting in Rwanda

The Rwanda Park Expansion and Reforestation Program is a Wilderness Safaris and Bisate Lodge initiative aimed at increasing the natural habitat of the endangered Mountain Gorilla. Southern Destinations have adopted a 1 hectare plot of land dedicated to planting indigenous trees on behalf of our VIP clients whether they be regular repeat guess or refer us to their friends, colleagues and family. Each tree is geo-located and clients can visit their trees and track their progress as they grow.
