The latest Tourism Tattler Newsletter

News, Views, and Reviews for the Travel Trade in, to and out of Africa.

NEWSLETTER

ISSUE 08 – AUGUST 2016

Our August edition front cover reflects the happy disposition of staff members at Lentaba Safari Lodge, located in the Lalibela Game Reserve in South Africa’s Eastern Cape province. A fitting image considering that South Africa celebrates National Women’s Day in August, and very relevant to Lalibela, which was recently sold. Vernon Wait of Pembury Tours reports on page 26 that the new owners are planning positive changes that will benefit both wildlife and rural communities in the region.

As usual, you can read the digital magazine by clicking onto the cover image above, or via any one of the bookshelf links shown below.

The page numbers below have been hyper-linked to download that specific page in PDF file format, while the article title has been hyper-linked to open the blog post in your web browser.

Yours in Tourism,
