Sustainable Tourism Incubation Program

The aim is to support social entrepreneurs in the tourism industry.

ORIBI Village is launching a 4-month entrepreneurship program for social entrepreneurs and future change makers working in the tourism industry.


Sustainable tourism is defined as “tourism that takes full account of its current and future economic, social and environmental impacts, addressing the needs of host communities”.

Oribi believes there is a need to recreate the landscape of tourism in South Africa, and we want to start with you! If you have a business in the tourism sector that you believe fits the definition of “Sustainable Tourism” or would like to transform your tourism-related business model to be more responsible, consider applying for the program, starting in September.

This is an 100% free program with a 4-month commitment to your project and the incubator. You will have the opportunity to learn the best tips and tools to scale up on your project. You will also have access to an incredible network of entrepreneurs and organisations interested in sharing knowledge and resources around social innovation.


Any individual with a social impact enterprise or an innovative business idea.

  • Collaborative and tailored workshops
