Apr 13, 2011

At the second annual Ubuntu Awards at an elegant reception at the St. Regis Hotel in New York City on April 7, 2011, Lion World Tours received the Top Producing Tour Operator award by South African Tourism.

This is the second year in a row that Lion World Tours has received this Ubuntu Award and been recognized as the leading tour operator from North America to Southern and Eastern Africa.

The reception, which recognizes the trade engagement in the US towards South Africa as a destination, was hosted by Ms. Sthu Zungu, President of South African Tourism, North America; with HE Ebrahim Rasool, South African Ambassador to the United States; South Africa's Ministor of Tourism, the Hon. Marthinus van Schalkwyk; and South African Tourism Chief Executive Officer Ms. Thandiwe January-Mclean among the dignitaries present. The emcee was well-known travel expert Peter Greenberg.

Accepting the award, Lion World Tours President Lucille Sive, said, "It's marvelous to see our team's hard work and efforts validated yet again by our partners at South African Tourism. We strive to give our clients and visitors to South Africa as many options and price points as possible and the results have been nothing but positive.

"With new offerings for 2011 and packages designed specifically for single passengers in which the single supplement fee is waived as well as packages where the second passenger enjoys a savings of up to US$600, we hope to see even more visitors from North America enjoy everything South Africa has to offer."
