Uluntu Africa, a small inbound tour operator and ground handler based in Cape Town, has received accreditation from Fair Trade in Tourism South Africa (FTTSA) for five of its travel packages.
Fair Trade Tourism holiday packages guarantee that the holiday benefits workers and owners of tourism businesses by requiring long-term trading relationships, full prepayment and binding cancellation agreements. An additional amount (called a premium) will be channelled directly into a central fund and used for development projects across South Africa. Fair Trade Tourism also monitors that price levels and contractual agreements are fair and that they are being followed, ensuring a fair deal especially for small and emerging tourism businesses.
Destinations for Uluntu Africa's Fair Trade Tourism packages include Cape Town, Garden Route, rural Drakensberg, Kruger National Park, Limpopo and Johannesburg.
