4 New Friends join the Trust after the Backpacking South Africa Conference

Di Thomas – one of the founding trustees of the TCD Trust and stalwarts of the South African backpacking industry – introduced the Tourism Community Development Trust to members of the South African Backpacking industry at the annual Backpacking South Africa (BSA) AGM & Conference held at Monkey Valley Resort in June 2007.

Following her inspirational talk, the trust acquired 4 awesome new members:

OverlandingAfrica.com – With more than 365 departures a year, OverlandingAfrica.com offers the widest range of overland tours in Africa.

BazBus – South Africa’s convenient hop-on hop-off door-to-door backpacker bus service.

Africa Travel Co – For over 17 years Africa Travel Co has operated overland adventures throughout southern and eastern Africa.

The Backpack – Selected as Cape Town’s best backpacker sleep by Lonely Planet 2005 & 2006.

A big thanks to these inspirational fore-runners of the backpacking industry in South Africa. We challenge more lodges and companies in the backing industry to join the trust.

Just do it!
