We truly believe that the tourism industry, whatever the destination, should benefit host and visitor in equal measure. Grassroots Traveller, as true believer in sustainable tourism, ensures that its business foundation rests on this philosophy. We work in close cooperation with businesses committed to the promotion of local communities, be it on the environmental, social or economical level. Our network of suppliers is therefore hand picked on the basis of commitment to bringing about positive development in their environments.
This is why we have decided to cater for bespoke experiences, allowing our clients to travel with a purpose. We also encourage our clientele to go a step further, to allow themselves grassroots experiences.

We are proud members of Pack for a Purpose, an initiative that allows travelers like you to make a lasting impact in the community at your travel destination. If you save just a few kilos of space in your suitcase and bring supplies for area schools or medical clinics in need, you’ll make a priceless impact in the lives of our local children and families.
