South African travel agents experience Seychelles


(eTN) – The Seychelles Tourism Board, in conjunction with their private sector partners, invited a group of over 30 leading South African travel agents to the archipelago to show them what an island holiday in Seychelles is all about.

Air Seychelles flies regularly to Johannesburg with B767 equipment, and South Africa is the most important market for the islands from the African continent and part of twin-center holiday arrangements for tourists from further abroad.

The South African travel agents visited restaurants; scenic sites; and other attractions, hotels, and resorts on Mahe, Praslin, and La Digue, to see the places they normally sell along with newly-opened and other resorts. The agents then participated in a day-long workshop at the new Ephelia Resort in Port Launay on Mahe, where they learned all there is to know about Seychelles tourism.

The trip was reportedly co-sponsored by Thompson Holidays and Air Seychelles.
