Luxury, Sustainable Holiday.
Luxury sustainable holiday. Not always three words you find in the same sentence. This week I’m showing you some amazing luxury places to visit who all score high on sustainability and eco-friendliness.
The luxury sustainable holiday is sometimes a contradiction for many travellers. When you think of luxury holidays I’m sure sustainability isn’t what immediately springs to mind? But, I’m here to tell you, you can have an Eco friendly trip in some of the most luxurious accommodation on the planet that’s also kind to the environment. We’ve worked hard at Eco Companion to bring together the best luxury sustainable holidays because we believe sustainability is for everyone. My whistle stop tour will takes you from South Africa to Chile via some truly jaw dropping locations. These places cases for the Eco traveller who appreciates the finer things in life or the luxury travel sceptic who thinks Eco travel is all bongos and beards. (nothing against beards, I have one!!!)
Sublime South Africa
Safari is normally the order of the day for most South Africa visitors. This tour is no exception but it also gives you a chance to take in some of the other attractions. The 10 day itinerary takes in the sites of Cape Town, visit the penguins on Boulders Beach and sample fine wine in Franschhoek before heading to Kruger National Park and your luxury safari lodge. You’ll spend the rest of your tour seeking out the “big 5” or in the spa! Whatever takes your fancy.
