South Africa: Fair Trade Tourism certifies Iketla Lodge in Limpopo!
Fair Trade Tourism (FTT), a South African NGO that encourages and monitors fair and responsible practises in tourism establishments and activities, has added the Iketla Lodge in Limpopo to its portfolio of tourism businesses in South Africa. The four-star lodge, which accommodates just 16 people, is situated in the middle of a 540 hectare private nature conservancy on the Panorama Route, approximately 30 minutes' drive from the famous Blyde River Canyon. Iketla Lodge is home to more than 200 different bird species and numerous migratory species of wildlife.Iketla Lodge is owner-run and was purpose built to minimize its impact on the natural environment. Five of the eight chalets were built on the edge of a rise and offer secluded look-out points into the valley. Each chalet has an en-suite bathroom with stone-built indoor shower and open-air outdoor shower.
