4 AND WHEN THOSE BILLION TOURISTS GET TO THEIR DESTINATIONS? They over-crowd

5 AND WHEN THOSE BILLION TOURISTS GET TO THEIR DESTINATIONS? Some deface sites

6 AND WHEN THOSE BILLION TOURISTS GET TO THEIR DESTINATIONS? They demand ever more accommodation

7 AND WHEN THOSE BILLION TOURISTS GET TO THEIR DESTINATIONS? They pile up mountains of extra waste and some spoil sites

8 AND WHEN THOSE BILLION TOURISTS GET TO THEIR DESTINATIONS? Some behave disrespectfully

9 SO, WHAT TO DO? There are plenty of reasons for believing that tourism can do great harm, but there are no reasons why it has to. Exodus Expeditions - UK What is needed is a sensitive balance between people s desire to explore the world but keep it looking like a picture post card Verité Baker: Leisure and Tourism

10 RESPONSIBLE TOURISM Responsible Tourism, put simply, is about providing better holiday experiences for guests and good business opportunities for tourism enterprises. Responsible Tourism is also about enabling local communities to enjoy a better quality of life through increased socio-economic benefits and improved natural resource management. DEAT (2002) Responsible Tourism Manual for SA

16 CASE STUDIES IN RESPONSIBLE TOURISM thakadurivercamp.co.za/

17 CORPORATE SOCIAL INVESTMENT (CSI) Corporate Social Investment (CSI) falls under the broad umbrella of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR). CSI is usually aimed at benefitting the environment and developing communities through financial or non-financial support through projects often carried out in partnership with non-profit organisations or government agencies. Corporate social investment addresses problems ranging from producing clean energy, creating jobs and building infrastructure to promoting adult education, providing training programmes and supporting early childhood development.

19 RESPONSIBLE TOURISTS make responsible travel choices that help to conserve the environment and sustain the livelihood of local people. Here are some guidelines: In nature spots: Leave only footprints (no littering). Take only photographs (no "souvenirs" from the wild). Stay on trails. Don't disturb wildlife or natural habitats. Don't introduce foreign plants or animals. Don't pollute water bodies with soap or detergents.

20 RESPONSIBLE TOURISTS (CONT D) In all places: Don't buy things made from endangered animals (e.g., products containing ivory or tortoise shell). Don't waste water. Turn off lights and air-conditioning when you leave your room. When possible, walk it's the best way to see the sights anyway. When not, use the most environmental methods of transportation you can. Patronise hotels, airlines and tour operators that employ responsible environmental practices, such as energy conservation and recycling. Support locally owned businesses; eat local food and drink local brands and brews. Follow local regulations. After returning home, think how you can support programmes and organisations that are working to protect the welfare, culture and environment of where you have been lucky to visit.

21 RESPONSIBLE TOURISTS (CONT D) An initiative that allows travellers to make a lasting impact in the community at their travel destination, by saving just a few kilos of suitcase space to bring supplies for schools or medical clinics. This voluntourism enables tourists to provide their services for Education projects; Wildlife projects and Community development projects

22 RESPONSIBLE TOURISTS (CONT D) Some tips to Chinese tourists travelling to other countries from a 64-page etiquette guidebook by the Chinese National Tourism Administration: In all countries: do not pick your nose in public; do not slurp noodles too loudly; do not spend too much time in public restrooms. In Italy, it is not acceptable to give a handkerchief as a gift. In Germany, tourists should snap their fingers only when calling dogs, not at people. In the UK, it is impolite to ask people if they ve eaten. Don t look dirty in public. Don t leave footprints on the toilet seat.
