To show our support for various courses aimed at developing a better South Africa, we enjoyed stretching our legs at the 702 #WTT2015 with BCD Travel South Africa and Protea Hotels. We had lots of fun while walking for a great partnership. View more pics here.
To demonstrate support for environmental protection, our team took to the streets and we got rid of rubbish in our neighbourhood. We are commited to supporting responsible tourism in our locak destinations and outside our borders. View pics here.
In September, a team from Thompsons Holidays visited Victoria Falls to get an update on the hotels and activities available at this popular destination. The team brought along books, bags and pencils to donate to a local school through Greenline Africa Trust.
Greenline Africa Trust aims to improve the livelihoods of marginalized women, children & youth through sustainable projects focusing on livelihoods, health, education and biodiversity management.
In November, our team visited the Jordan House Old Age Home. This is an amazing NGO whose main objective is to provide shelter, meals, clothing and other life amenities for the aged or disabled persons.
We had a great time hosting our supplier friends and stakeholders at the "Save the Rhino fundraising event".
