The team at Elewana Serengeti Pioneer Camp celebrate as they conclude two days of interactive Responsible Tourism Training this month. The Elewana Collection is committed to sustainable tourism, ensuring future generations can enjoy the wonders of Africa and safari adventure. The origin of the name Elewana is the Swahili word meaning “harmony”, a concept that underpins our company philosophy and influences the way we deliver unforgettable safari experiences. We continually strive to leave as little impact as possible on our surrounding environment, while creating a positive impact on local communities.
Conducting the training is Johannes Solar Obeto (Solar for short), who is an advisor for Travelife in addition to a Coach and Audit Coordinator for RTTZ (Responsible Tourism Tanzania). He has years of experience in sustainable tourism and responsible travel.
The Elewana staff are key ambassadors for the company and for their country, interacting with guests and their local communities and carrying the message of sustainable operations with them. We believe that staff deserve to be in-the-know and well equipped with the right skills, the latest knowledge and a depth of information at their fingertips!
Responsible Tourism Tanzania (RTTZ) is a non-profit organization that encourages and promotes a more sustainable tourism industry within Tanzania. RTTZ was established in 2011 as a trusteeship with a governance and membership base that includes the key stakeholders within the tourism industry, providing various services or functions to support the industry to manage their business in a sustainable manner.
