Embedding Sustainability at Singita's Lodges - Travel as a Force for Good

In this episode, well-known travel journalist Richard Holmes talks to Dr. Andrea Ferry, Sustainability Co-ordinator at Singita. They discuss sustainability in the world of luxury travel, and especially safari travel.

Many travellers don't think too carefully about just what's being done to protect the wilderness areas they visit. Part of the problem is deciding how we define sustainability. Is it about offsetting the carbon from your flight to Africa? Is it about supporting local communities while you're here? Or is it about what powers the light bulbs in your suites and fuels the vehicle fuel game drive?
Take a deep dive into sustainability in the luxury safari industry and hear how far-reaching Singita's sustainability ethos is, and how it's being embedded into every aspect of its business - which now spans four African countries.

At Singita, a sustainable world is one in which people enjoy happy, healthy lives within their fair share of the earth’s resources, leaving space for wildlife and wilderness. Singita has also set ambitious goals to further reduce its environmental footprint and play its part in addressing the global climate crisis.

Let's dive in.
