Africa Collection Host The Zulu Route

Tuesday night saw the Zulu Route delegation travel to the Africa Collection offices in West Sussex for the second event in their roadshow.  Africa Collection had invited agents from the surrounding counties to come and experience a true South African braai.  True to form the great British weather rebelled and instead of a balmy summer night we had heavy rain!!! Nothing however could dampen the enthusiasm of the agents for the province and the training that they received.

Once again Storm from Tourism KwaZulu-Natal and Chris from Africa Collection welcomed the agents and introduced them to the province and its diversity.  This was then followed by a “speed dating” style of training workshop whereby each supplier trained a group of 5 agents.  In a slight twist to the normal format the supplier then moved tables and started all over again.  Craig from Ghost Mountain, Isabella from Pakamisa and Richard from Fordoun who were over from KwaZulu-Natal commented on the attentiveness of the agents and their real keen interest in learning more about the Zulu Route.  They were also joined by Amanda from Ethos Marketing who trained on Isandlwana Lodge and Amakhosi Safari Lodge, Sue from Ethos Marketing who trained on Cathedral Peak Hotel, Ami from The Oyster Box and Wayne from South African Airways.

Following the workshop everyone relaxed with a delicious braai that  consisted of steak cooked to perfection, chicken in a hot sauce and South African sausage accompanied by salads and new potatoes.  Chris then took this opportunity to carry out the prize draw.  There was wine and Amarula as the second and third prizes, but the main prize of the night had been donated by SAA and properties along the Zulu route.

Pam Jackman from Lown Travel was the lucky winner of this amazing holiday to experience Kwazulu-Natal and she is pictured above receiving her prize from Chris and Wayne.

Craig, Isabella, Richard and Ami headed off early this morning with Alison from Ethos Marketing to take the Zulu Route North to York continuing their mission to raise awareness and drive the passion for the Zulu Route.

    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.
