Focus: Tourvest's focus is destination retail – translating the intellectual capital inherent in a specific destination into a retail experience, providing guests to the destination with a strong sense of place. This experience and skill set is enhanced by our ability to source authentic African and South African craft for our South African business ensuring that we offer the very best that the African continent has to offer.
Social Impact: Our Social Impact at this point is predominantly indirect and therefor un-quantifiable, however, a strategic priority when procuring goods. Since our inception we have been closely aligned with community support projects and source goods from many small & micro-enterprises, resulting in 10 000 rural jobs created. We have donated over 70 million rand to support these ventures over the past 10 years.
