South Africa: Eastern Cape game reserve joins Fair Trade Tourism's portfolio!

Fair Trade Tourism (FTT), a South African NGO that encourages and monitors fair and responsible practises in tourism establishments and activities, has added the Shamwari Game Reserve to its portfolio of South African tourism businesses. The Reserve, which is located 75 km outside Port Elizabeth in the Eastern Cape, has marked its 25th anniversary this year by achieving Fair Trade Tourism certification for all eight of its tourism products. 

Set on 25,000ha of reclaimed farmland, the Shamwari Game Reserve is renowned for its wildlife conservation initiatives and commitment to surrounding communities. In addition to offering a classic wildlife experience, the reserve incorporates the Ian Player Rhino Centre, the Born Free Big Cat Sanctuary and its own Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre with a team of veterinarians on hand. Shamwari Game Reserve is home to the Big 5 and is malaria free. Luxury accommodation is offered in 7 different lodges, all of which are 5 Star graded.
