Travel and tourism as a damaging activity

Travel and tourism as a damaging activity

If ever there was a reason to consider the impact travel has on local people and the local environment, this is it.

Interestingly, this is an urban destination in Europe, which one would have thought would be much better able to accommodate tourism than some of the very fragile places and vulnerable people we operate in.

However, we do have a choice.  Your travel can be positive, can contribute rather than detract but you have to mindful of who you allow to plan the trip and how you travel.

Using an ethical travel planning company like Where It All Began means that your travel spend only has a positive contribution to the place you visit, not an unseen deleterious one.…/tourists-go-home-refugees-wel…

Our logo is an image of a skull found in the Rising Star Cave System in Gauteng, South Africa in 2013. It was named ‘homo naledi’, meaning ‘human of the stars’.

The cave system has so far given rise to the remains of over 15 individuals, making it the largest hominid fossil remains site ever discovered.

Travelling to Southern Africa is truly a return to the source of humankind, to Where It All Began.
