The service providers are specially selected people. We contribute to sustainability by using Kontrei Traveller to promote the products of the Kontrei Traveller Portfolio. Each member of the Kontrei Traveller Portfolio(KTP) is actively managing his/her business in their kontreis, thus contributing via the 4 structural elements, (the 4C’s), to sustainability.
• Conservation: conserving natural and cultural resources used for tourism production.
• Community: enhancing benefits for host communities at tourism destinations.
• Customer: ethical consumption of authentic sense of place experiences.
• Company: managing the long term sustainability of its tourism business.
A substantial part of visitor satisfaction is being befriended with another Kontrei and to have enlightening experiences of another place/kontrei in terms of the local natural and cultural dynamics.
A satisfactory visitor experience also contributes to the quality of life enrichment of the host – visitor relationship in terms of appreciation expressed in better understanding, conservation, stability, cooperation, harmony in diversity and additional inner peace.
The office of Kontrei Traveller forms part of our 4* accommodation, Zomerlust Gastehuis, in Paarl. You are welcome to stay and travel with us.
