Sustainability: a non-negotiable for the future of tourism in Africa

In a world where sustainability is at the top of every traveller’s hotlist and on every company’s corporate agenda, Africa has a  unique opportunity to position itself as the sustainable destination of the future. 

All eyes are currently on COP26. This important event will see the world address climate change and look for innovative solutions to preserve our planet for generations to come. 

That is why Africa Travel Week has decided to have a closer look at environmental sustainability within our own African tourism sector during a virtual panel discussion. 

What can we do to ensure the sustainability of our industry? What projects are making a tangible difference? 


  •  Inge Huijbrechts, Global Senior Vice President Sustainability, Security and Corporate Communications
  • Hilton Walker, Chief Marketing and Sales Officer Great Plains Conservation
  • Paul Gardiner, CEO Mantis Collection

These key industry players shared the sustainability lessons they have learned over the years, and shed some light on how to implement worthwhile sustainable tourism practices.
