Hey there, African Travellers! Are you ready to take your travel game to the next level? We're not just talking about the usual fun and frolics here in Africa – we're talking about using travel as a powerful tool for change. That's right, travel can be a force for good, and it all starts with our happy travellers – all 200,000 of them!

1 Sustainable Job Created for Every 7 Visitors

Now, we all love the idea of jetting off to far-flung destinations, exploring new cultures, and immersing ourselves in unforgettable experiences. But what if we told you that your travel adventures could be so much more than just a fun vacation? Did you know, for every seven people who travel to Africa, one new job is created in the tourism sector? It's true! 

And with over a whopping 200,000 ecstatic travellers under our belt, we've contributed to the creation of more than 28,500 jobs in Africa! These jobs are not just benefitting the employees, but they're also supporting their families – and with up to 10 family members being supported per job, that's positively impacting over a quarter of a million people!

Going Further...

But Rhino Africa's impact goes beyond job creation. We've also partnered with some incredible organisations to make an even bigger difference. For example, the Good Work Foundation – one of our Top Impact Partners – provides education and career development opportunities to rural communities in South Africa, giving young people the tools they need to succeed. Or the Khumbulani Day Care Centre, which supports vulnerable children and families in Cape Town affected and infected by HIV/AIDS, providing them with essential resources and care where they need it most.

Furthermore, another one of our Impact Partners, Wildlife ACT, is focused on protecting endangered species across Africa, while Challenge4ACause encourages individuals to support African charities through adventure challenges. And then there's Save the Rhino Trust, dedicated to conserving and protecting rhinos in Namibia. These partnerships aren't just making a difference – they're changing lives and creating a better world for all of us.

About the author 

Michelle Welvering

Growing up, Michelle always wanted to become a world-renowned artist, a kickboxing-champion and an eccentric explorer – aka a Kickboxing Exploring Artist! After pursuing an education in Fine Arts and opening her own Kickboxing gym in Pretoria, an unexpected twist led her to a six-year stint as a travel consultant in South African tourism. She believes that all things happen for a reason and, driven by adventure, she was eager to find a more “wild” and cultural space to call home. This led her to wander the Western Cape coastline, fall in love with the city of Cape Town and, of course, her workplace, Rhino Africa.
