Across The Red Carnation Africa Collection we are proud to work with charities and sustainable partners that leave a positive impact on people, wildlife and the planet. Our sustainable initiatives are at the heart of everything we do, from sending organic waste to communities local to Xigera for their garden projects, to protecting a herd of Cape Mountain Zebras and ancient rock art sites, both at Bushmans Kloof.
Red Carnation Hotels is a proud sibling of the Travel Corporation’s family of brands and works in proud partnership with its TreadRight Foundation to #MakeTravelMatter. On an ever-wider scale, TreadRight supports more than 50 sustainable tourism projects worldwide, including the Wilderness Foundation Africa, the Wilderness Wildlife Trust, the Cape Leopard Trust and ME to WE.
