Social Responsibility

Travel is an incredible gift – it opens our eyes to the unique cultures and breathtaking beauty of the natural world. But with this gift comes a responsibility – to protect the world as we know it. As proud supporters and members of the TreadRight Foundation, we are committed to safeguarding the environment, communities and wildlife of the destinations we promote. 

At Thompsons, we take the care of our local communities and environment seriously; we regularly donate time and resources to helping local orphanages and care homes, and have participated in Mandela Day outreach each year. We've also partnered with Avis to support the PINK Initiative in aid of breast cancer awareness, and raised money for CHOC with our sponsored swims of the annual Midmar Mile race.

Thompsons has also reduced all single-use plastic in our offices in line with our Treadright Pledge, and in 2019, together with the rest of the Cullinan Holdings group, implemented solar panels on our office and vehicle depot roofs which has seen a dramatic reduction in our energy consumption. As of 2020, Thompsons has signed the Animal Interaction Charter, as a leading member of SATSA. We commit to abiding by the ethical approach adopted by the guidelines to animal interactions in the tourism industry.
