In the unusual situation the Travel Industry finds itself in as a result of the Covid-19 global pandemic, it is imperative that travellers feel safe in order for a new norm to be reached as the various types of travel resume.

The goal of the World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC) is to achieve travel that is safe, secure, seamless, and provides an authentic & meaningful experience to the traveller, as well as supporting the livelihoods of millions, and contributes to sustainable economic growth.

Who are the WTTC?

The World Tavel & Tourism Council is the global authority on the economic & social contribution of Travel & Tourism. They promote sustainable growth for the Travel & Tourism sector, working with governments and international institutions to create jobs, drive exports and generate prosperity.

What is the SafeTravels Stamp?

The SafeTravels Stamp & Logo was created for travellers to recognise destinations and businesses around the world which have adopted the SafeTravels health & hygiene global standardised protocols, which in turn, take into account current World Health Organisation (WHO) and Centre for Disease Control (CDC) guidelines.

Why can YellowWood display the Stamp?

Since the beginning of the pandemic, YellowWood Adventures has kept abreast of, and implemented, the WTTC Global protocols around health and safety which in turn refer to recommendations from the World Health Organisation (WHO) and Centre for Disease Control (CDC). The WTTC have published detailed protocols that cover many aspects of travel & tourism and at YellowWood Adventures, we have implemented the recommended strategies for Tour Operators, and for Adventure Travel.

We are proud to display the SafeTravels stamp on our website to help you know that you are in safe hands when you choose to travel with us. Please read through our pages on Your Safety for further information on how we manage all aspects of health, hygiene and risk during our adventures.
