Travel isn't just about exploring new horizons and experiencing diverse cultures; it should also involve preserving the beauty of our planet and supporting the communities that make our journeys memorable. That's why BON VOY proudly supports Peace Parks Foundation, as their mission aligns seamlessly with our commitment to responsible and sustainable travel.
Peace Parks Foundation is dedicated to the conservation of natural resources and the preservation of wildlife in southern Africa. Their efforts in establishing and maintaining transboundary conservation areas and wildlife reserves have not only played a pivotal role in safeguarding biodiversity but also in empowering local communities. These protected areas, often straddling international borders, promote regional cooperation and peace, contributing to the sustainable development of the region.
One of the significant initiatives of Peace Parks Foundation is their support to the SA College for Tourism, which equips women from nearby communities with the skills and knowledge necessary to thrive in the tourism industry. This empowers these women, providing them with opportunities for education and economic independence.
