    • First of all let me thank you for such a great opportunity to be invited and hosted at World Travel Market Africa 2019. I must say that it was extremely useful for my company. It was a pleasure to meet the companies in person which are already amongst our partners and especially it was a pleasure to meet a lot of new properties and companies operating in different African destinations. I'm happy to be back full of new contacts and opportunities. Very special thanks for opportunity to attend a post tour. It was absolutely amazing to see the different sides of South Africa and to get closer to culture, atmosphere, nature, lifestyle etc.You made such special efforts for us. I really appreciate.

    • Thank you very much for the great organization and wonderful show. It was pleasure to be part of the WTM 2019. The post tour in AQULA was wonderful. I had time to look around the reserve, to talk with the manager and to have a great game drive.Thank you again. Everything was wonderful! Can’t wait for the next WTM show.
