Kate Webb's true north is to ensure that any tourism that she facilitates drives the local economy and community. Her companies, Orbis Expeditions and the Responsible Safari Company, achieve this aim through sport challenge trips, learning ventures, and travel with a purpose.
In this conversation, she and Christine talk about Kate's focus on supporting current initiatives over creating new ones, what really benefits people in the local economy, and cultural understanding vs. cultural empathy. They also discuss feelings of shame and discomfort as we travel, and how those moments are opportunities for growth.
