Tourism Boot Camp

Luxury Safaris South Africa supports several initiatives such as the SATSA Tourism Conservation Fund, the Santa Shoebox Project and the S.A.V.E. foundation. Our in-house project is focused on an upscaling initiative, Tourism Boot Camp.


Our primary intervention is a localised bridging academy for disenfranchised youth. We train youngsters from the local townships with a practical four week boot camp on our premises, whereafter we help them find internship and employment opportunities within our local networks in inbound travel.

Please let us know if you would like to assist with this initiative. The cost for each student is about 800USD to complete the course. This is presently wholly funded by Luxury Safaris and staffed by industry partners and volunteers. In 2018 we aim to graduate in excess of 30 Boot Campers into permanent industry employment, but there is much more that needs to be done.
