We are thrilled to share that Elewana Collection is now part of TourSafe Africa, a U.S. based, not-for-profit entity which advocates for African accommodations to adopt safety and cleanliness procedures developed by the World Travel and Tourism Council, CDC and the U.N. World Tourism Organization, as well as local governments. All Elewana Collection properties have been vetted by the TourSafe team and adhere to the safety standards and guidelines set forth by the group, offering travellers an additional sense of reassurance when choosing their safari accommodations.Properties are nominated by the TourSafe Executive and International Committee, which consists of North American and International leaders of the Africa travel trade community. Many countries within Africa, together with hospitality brands and services, are heavily investing in recovery strategies and working steadfastly to adopt world standards in order to prepare for the return of tourism.
Alana Hayden, founder of Born Free Safaris & Tours and the Association for the Promotion of Tourism to Africa, established TourSafe Africa in order to “rebuild confidence in the potential traveller to Africa. That we can get the word out that hotels, lodge, camps, and tour operators are ready to welcome travellers on a journey of a lifetime.”We are proud to partner with TourSafe Africa to ensure safari tourism returns to Africa better and safer than ever before, to impart a sense of trust with our guests and to uphold our commitment to our local communities who are greatly supported by the travel industry.
