Fair Trade Tourism

MOLO LOLO Cape Town is engaged in a fair, eco-friendly and sustainable business approach. We respect the core values of environmental labels through our organization and everyday behaviour. We aim at respecting and protecting the environment as well as our employees and guests, while providing a great service and unique experience in both our properties LOLO HOUSE and MOLO LOLO LODGE.

MOLO LOLO truly cares about creating a friendly atmosphere, whether it is between managers and guests or managers and employees. We train our staff on an ongoing basis and offer opportunities for personal development and growth, we offer them cooking classes, housekeeping training and provide them with locally made (by local tailors) uniforms to give them a strong sense of identity and belonging to the MOLO LOLO family. We ensure that they feel right at work and encourage open and honest dialogue. We encourage the sharing of ideas and opinions in the day to day operation of the business.

We also want to help the community and act as responsibly as we can to ensure the fair development of local businesses. For example, we created partnerships to promote and support the growth of local businesses of craftsmen and artisans market in Cape Town by showing their products in our Properties.

We also contracted with SME and small local businesses for all our renovations works done to our property, recently the MOLO LOLO LODGE. We also developed partnerships with restaurants located in the townships to encourage people to go there and meet the local community. This is in line with our Vision to provide a cultural experience to our guests, so that they can truly get to enjoy the feeling of what it means to live in South Africa and most particularly Cape Town.

In line with our values, we recently joined the Red Zebra foundation. This association aims to create an inclusive, vibrant society where young people can fully engage in co-creating safer, healthier communities, using the methodology of creative expression, dance, music and open dialogue in a safe and trustful environment.
