Shamwari awarded Fair Trade Tourism certificate

The Fair Trade label stands for best practice responsible tourism – defined by fair wages and working conditions, fair purchasing and operations, equitable distribution of benefits and respect for human rights, culture and the environment. It ensures that the people who contribute their land, resources, labour and knowledge to tourism are the ones who reap the benefits.

Adhering to the Fair Trade label means travellers can relax in the knowledge that their holiday is not just providing a lifetime of great memories but having a positive and lasting impact on local people and the environment.

The six principles of Fair Trade Tourism

  • Fair share
  • Fair say
  • Respect
  • Reliability
  • Transparency
  • Sustainability
