WE ARE AFRICA CONFERENCE
The third annual ‘We are Africa’ conference took place in Cape Town recently. Over 250 exhibitors gathered to promote new luxury properties, property upgrades and advancements in conservation and anti-poaching techniques. Our managing director, Patrick, was invited to attend the conference and he met with over 60 exhibitors to discuss and source new properties and deals for our customers.
Tourist trends and infrastructure developments within the region were also discussed. Zimbabwe is experiencing renewed visitor interest in Hwange and Mana Pools National Parks. Hwange is known for its large elephant herds and Mana Pools has the country’s largest concentration of hippo and crocodile. In Victoria Falls USD$150 million is being spent on the airport to allow for larger planes. A second runway will mean more direct scheduled flights to places such as Kruger Nelspruit, Cape Town and possibly Nairobi, making travel around east and southern Africa easier and quicker.
