Linksfontein Safari Lodge – Responsible Tourism
As the Spanish proverb says, ”He who would bring home the wealth of the Indies, must carry the wealth of the Indies with him.” So it is in travelling; a man must carry knowledge with him, if he would bring home knowledge.
We all live in a fast paced life. Cellphones, computers ect is at the order of the day. These things tend to rule our lives, sometimes without us realising it.
Breaking away or to plan a “little get-away” always seems like the obvious thing to do when one realises you feel stressed and tired.
Planning a travel, the destination, the time-span and cost is some of the most important aspects to consider, or is it really?
After your trip, ask yourself what you remember most. Is it the amount you had to spend, the poor signal and shaky wifi connection, or is it something more…
Overseas tourists and travellers come from all sides of the globe to visit South Africa. Having such a big array of destinations within South Africa to choose from, how do one even find time to think about responsible tourism, let alone implement such responsibility?
Linksfontein Safari Lodge – Responsible Tourism.
We at Linksfontein have an variety of nature based activities to do just that – help you understand responsible tourism and how to implement such responsibility in one self and those around you.
We live close to nature, every day. Each of us wakes up to the snorting of our European Wild Boars burrowing in the wet ground. Springbuck rams warning each other to stay out of their territory. For us to be able to experience that and to be able to let others experience that as well, we need to have a sense of responsibility.
Linksfontein Safari Lodge – Responsible tourism is our way of saying “thank you” and “to come and have a look at what we have to offer”.
We do not condone littering of any sort in our veld. The reason not only being that it is disgusting and rude, it is dangerous to animals and hikers.
Animals tend to grow accustomed to their surroundings and their adaptability is astonishing. The lesser you spend time on your phone and observe more, you will learn that there is a gift awaiting you in every sunrise. A thankful thought in mind at every sunset. Taking part in our hiking trail activity wears your boots, it revives your soul and broadens your knowledge. About our animals, their behaviour and the plant life around you.
Our photography experience is a chance for you to interact secretly and unnoticeable with nature. As well as to capture moments in time many never get the chance to.
Leave your worries at home, enjoy what we and nature have to offer. Appreciate what you encounter and take a sense of responsibility home. Make sure you make a positive impact on you surroundings, improving it and making a difference.
