For almost a year now, the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has thrown the tourism economy into an unprecedented crisis. The whole planet was affected and had to suffer the effects caused by the Coronavirus. In 2020, many trips had to be canceled or postponed. All tourism players have tried to adapt to this exceptional situation by accepting very flexible cancellation or postponement conditions. Many refunds had to be made and many people are still waiting for their refunds. However, it should be noted that many customers also lost their money because no one could predict what was going to happen and at the last minute it is also very difficult to foresee certain reliefs.

During this period, many countries took turns closing their borders, reopening them and sometimes even closing them again. The health measures put in place worry travellers who do not know if they will be able to travel again, beyond their borders. International tourism has declined sharply due to border closures that continue over the months, awaiting the arrival of vaccines or effective treatments to eradicate this virus. Today, 100% of countries have put in place restrictive entry measures in their countries.

Should we stop travelling for all that?

Each country is a destination to discover or rediscover. This crisis has also allowed some residents to appreciate the wonders that reside in their country of origin. Indeed, we often tend to think that to travel, you have to go far, but not necessarily. It is true that each person has their own vision of what travel means. But if we remain factual and look only at the definition of the word ” journey ”, it is said that the journey is a: ” Movement that one makes, generally over a long distance, out of his home”.

And you, what is your definition of travel? Does one have to go far from home?

At the end of the world – N14 to Augrabies
At the end of the world – Okavango Delta
At the end of the world – Cape of Good Hope

Do you practice sustainable tourism?

Tourism is a vital sector for the economy and provides employment, foreign exchange, growth and identity enhancement. According to the WTO (World Tourism Organization), the tourism sector accounted for 4.4% of global GDP.

Tourism therefore has an important place at the international level but also and above all at the local level and that should not be forgotten.

In recent years, we hear more and more about sustainable tourism. But what does this really mean? Does it really exist? Isn’t that just a fad that’s going to fade? Isn’t that just a marketing argument?

Sustainable tourism simply implies respect for the principles of sustainable development by maintaining ecological, economic and social balance. Find out more, click here : What is sustainable tourism?.

Support the local employment – Botswana

Tourism has uneven effects in the host territories and generates a significant transformation of the territories. The development of sustainable tourism is, for some actors, their objective. And this has been the case since the creation of their entities, for more than twenty years. The values ​​and consciences are beautiful and very present. We are building lasting collaborations so that the tourism that we offer contributes to minimising the negative effects of tourism and maximising the positive effects such as the guarantee of fair remuneration for local actors or still respect for human rights. At Timuntu Travel, we are proud to say that we are truly committed to sustainable tourism even though we know there is still a lot to do. In each of the African destinations we offer, we have decided to support a sustainable project. Check out some of these projects. If you would like more information about a particular project, do not hesitate to contact us by email at the following address or ask us to call you back. It will be a pleasure for us to discuss this with you.
