Sustainable Tourism

In all our everyday activities, Breeze Africa Tours endeavors to keep the environment in its natural state. We actively work on the four mainstays of sustainable tourism, namely; cultural vitality, social equity, economic health and environmental responsibility.

The Cultural Vitality Mainstay focuses on the promotion of human well‐being through enhancing both quality of life and quality of place. In this regard, Breeze Africa Tours appreciates that the basic role of art, culture, and heritage has long been to bring beauty into our daily lives. But these also nurture individual and community identity, promote social cohesion, and contribute to the creation of “social wealth.” Where social wealth is strong, communities unveil high rates of volunteerism and citizen participation as well as greater inclusion of all sectors of society in the social and cultural fabric. Also, a community that is rich in social capital provides a wealth of intelligence, sensitivity, and wisdom that will underpin and support appropriate ecological, economic, and social sustainability strategies.

The Social Equity Mainstay helps social organizations and residents to raise awareness about social needs and engaging both citizens and community partners in planning and acting in response to these needs. The end result is to improve the well-being of the whole community. To this end, Breeze Africa Tour’s approach is to build social capital in the community between individuals and groups in order to enable collaborative action on activities of common interest.

The Economic Mainstay, Breeze Africa Tours appreciates that developing an economy depends on building many relationships and partnerships with businesses, captains of industry, educational institutions, non-profit organizations, and the community at large. We continue to enhance quality of the place and quality of life, to continue to attract and retain talented people and quality businesses.

Environmental Responsibility, the environment does have a principal position in that without a life‐sustaining environment, the above three mainstays cease to exist. We acknowledge some of the major global environmental challenges: climate change, dwindling nonrenewable resources, shrinking natural habitats, diminishing biodiversity, ocean acidification; and increasing human population pressures. Clearly, all of these issues have economic, social and cultural elements.
