The First Zulu Route Workshop

A great evening was had by all at Shaka Zulu Restaurant last night, when we held the first of a series of workshops arranged by Ethos Marketing to promote our six KZN clients.  Sadly no real Zulus, but we certainly brought the province of KwaZulu-Natal to London!

The venue was spectacular, which added a real flavour of Africa and more specifically KwaZulu-Natal to the event.

Travel Agents came from across London to learn about this amazing province of South Africa and they were certainly impressed by what was on offer.

The evening began with a warm welcome from Africa Collection and a brief province overview from Storm Napier, UK representative for Tourism KwaZulu-Natal.   The agents were plied with delicious South African wine, biltong and samosas and then invited to sit at eight tables where the suppliers each gave a ten minute presentation before the agents moved onto the next table.

Craig from Ghost Mountain Inn, Richard from Fordoun and Isabella from Pakamisa had flown over for the week – Alison from Ethos Marketing presented Amakhosi and Isandlwana and Sue from Ethos Marketing represented Cathedral Peak.  Other exhibitors included South African Airways and The Oyster Box.

The workshop was followed by a Durban Curry (with all the normal Durban curry accompaniments) and Koeksisters were served as dessert.

At the end of the evening we had a prize draw with bottles of wine and a holiday to KwaZulu-Natal, including flights on South African Airways and 7 nights’ accommodation.  The lucky winner of the holiday was Susan Russell from Fourways Travel.

Tonight’s  workshop will be a second agents event at African Collection’s office in West Sussex, after which the group will travel north to Lincolnshire, Yorkshire, Cheshire, Oxfordshire and Gloucestershire – before returning to London for the final tour operator workshop in London on 25 July.

    Exploring Tanzanias Northern Circuit

    It had been a few years since my last visit to Northern Tanzania, an area on many people’s bucket list, and an area with names that evoke all sorts of emotions. My memories of my first visit to Tanzania, about 20 years ago, are still with me – particularly the cheetah sighting in the tall grass of the Serengeti, when the cubs got told off by their Mum, because she lost the Tommy she had just caught for their dinner, as they were otherwise occupied with some rough and tumble.
