Recognition and promotion of responsible tourism
The aim of the Lilizela awards is to recognize and reward excellence in the tourism value chain in South Africa. Responsible, eco-friendly tourism, and a contribution to inclusive growth have become important considerations in the adjudication process of the Lilizela awards. We are happy knowing that we had this approach all along: Madi a Thavha is a four-star lodge, Fair Trade certified and the proud holders of TripAdvisor’s certificate of excellence for the past 4 years. The lodge is also listed by Bird-life SA as a Birder friendly enterprise. The Zulu word ‘’Lilizela’’ means to celebrate and praise by ululating when someone has done well. Thank you for your vote of confidence!
