DURBAN: Tourism and hospitality ventures that showcased their services as well products at the just ended annual Africa Travel Indaba (ATI) held here, have said that the three-day event which started last Tuesday was an eye opener.

Over 30 businesses from Botswana exhibited at Africa’s most prominent networking event for tourism businesses and related stakeholders. The participation of Botswana businesses at the fair was partly facilitated by Botswana Tourism Organisation (BTO), Citizen Entrepreneurial Development Agency (CEDA) and Local Enterprise Authority (LEA).

Amongst the businesses that participated at the fare is Xaa Safaris, a Maun-based business owned by Nobantu Sebonego and her husband. Sebonego says the Indaba provided her with valuable lessons and tips that she can use to navigate the American market which is considered to be one of the most lucrative for Botswana. Sebonego’s business offers Safaris excursions in areas such as Moremi Game Reserve, CKGR, Savuti and Chobe.
