A message from our sponsor: The Backpack
We at The Backpack, and as a long standing member of SAYTC are so excited to have WYSTC 2015 in Cape Town.
The Backpack is South Africa’s original backpacker established in 1990. We are an award winning, Fair Trade hostel that invests in people and communities, giving meaningful and relaxed, travel experiences.
The Backpack targets independent travellers and small groups. Volunteers, interns and language students wanting to experience Cape Town pre- or post-programs. We accommodate 100 people in 16 room types which are all individually styled. We have all the facilities you can expect from an urban hip hostel and offer our guests excellent service and support through a wide range of tour operators; offering guests the opportunity to practice responsible tourism in Cape Town and South Africa.
Making a difference is the way we work, the way we live and the way we are.
Please join me at the WYSE Travel Confederation stand on Friday, 24 September at 11.40 am when I will share my story and provide ideas on how we empower our employees with skills to become ambassadors that actively make a difference and bring responsible tourism to a reality each day, which is the trademark of our business.
You are welcome to visit our hostel during your stay in Cape Town. You can find me at the Hillcrest Aids Foundation’s, Woza Moya Store at the Conference or at the SAYTC stand.
