Experience local cultures across our destinations

Enriching social impact.


The Rwandan chef’s recipe passed down for generations that you scribbled down on the back of a coaster. The perfumed scent of smoke and red ochre in the air as you observed the fascinating Himba people of Namibia. Being taught how to play ‘Nsolo’, a traditional Zambian board game by local school children, and teaching them how to win at UNO. Each experience, a reminder of our interconnectedness.
