Our Award Winning Volunteer Programs
We don't mean to boast...
Okay, maybe just a little. We are very proud of EDGE of AFRICA’s numerous award winning volunteer programs!
The Lilizela Imvelo Award recognises and celebrates tourism and hospitality businesses that practice exemplary responsible, sustainable and fair business practices. In 2013 EDGE of AFRICA were winners in the “Sustainable Development” category (in recognition of our various community empowerment projects). In 2014, we were finalists in the “Social Development” category.
Thanks to our commitment to providing our volunteers with a unique and fulfilling experience in exchange for their hard work and dedication, we won the 2010 Welcome Award for South Africa’s most welcoming tour operator. Only nine categories qualified as providers of consistent, outstanding service and authentic South African experiences. EDGE of AFRICA was also runner up for this award in 2009. And it’s country wide!
In 2008, 2009 and 2010, 2011 & 2012 EDGE of AFRICA was voted in the top four of Africa’s Leading Conservation Companies by the World Travel Awards. EDGE of AFRICA is constantly striving to make a real difference and a direct impact on the community and our environment. We thank everyone who contributed towards reaching these goals.
