Suppliers Celebrity Cruises, Royal Caribbean, Globus, Regent Seven Seas and Ama Waterways also attended.

About the trip

The group travelled to Johannesburg for an overnight before continuing to Kruger National Park where they were fortunate enough to see the Big 5. The group also visited Soweto for a heritage tour and the Nelson Mandela House.

The following day the group flew to Cape Town where they took the cable car to the top of Table Mountain. The stay in Cape Town also included a chef’s table experience and visits to several wineries, Boulders Beach and Kirstenbosch National Botanical Gardens. The final days were spent at Victoria Falls – this was an optional extra that half the group took up. Views
of the Falls were spectacular from the hotel and many of the group took the Jet Boat experience , while others took helicopter rides over the Falls.

“Thank you to The Travel Agent Next Door for choosing G Adventures to celebrate your top achievers in South Africa during your special 10th anniversary year celebrations. For many this was a bucket list experience…the emotions were running high as we experienced community tourism in action, learning through the eyes of our local CEO’s and guides who told their stories with passion and joy,” said Green. “One hundred per cent of the costs associated with the tour stayed in the local communities that we visited, and it’s fair to say that we all came back enriched from the experience. Thank you TTAND for your continued support, and we look forward to celebrating with you all in Jordan for your 10th Anniversary conference.”
