04 November 2016

INDUSTRY FEEDBACK: Here it is, straight from your peers: the feedback from the adventurous partners on the Sustainable Africa Mega Fam 2016.

It was incredibly impressive - everything went just as smooth as glass and it was the best fam trip I've ever been on.

– Kate Corey, 6 Degrees, USA.

Unbelievably fantastic, well organised and makes me think even more about sustainable tourism. So I'm gonna go away and think about how we can achieve it better.

– Stephen Cameron, African Wildlife & Natural Focus Safaris, Australia.

It's the most wonderful thing to reignite a passion for travel to Africa, and working together to make it happen. I haven't felt this energy in an industry forum for ten thousand years. Everybody has a common goal and the way this has been done, the agenda has been absolutely "let's get more people to Africa because this is a remarkable destination".

– Nicky Fitzgerald, Angama Mara, Kenya.

Working with lodges & properties now that have a real goal to make areas and properties much more sustainable for the long run.

– Chris Renshaw, Safari Architects, South Africa.

We were able to have a very serious, honest, and uncomfortable conversations in an open forum so we can all be better and learn from it, regarding sustainability.

– Jay Ahmed, KMX Global Travel, USA.

Sensational, transformational, educational, all the adjectives. Really, it was remarkable. It's pushed our understanding of the issues surrounding tourism and conservation, philanthropy to a new level and understanding fully what goes on and being able to discuss first-hand.

– Nicky Williams, Passage to Africa, South Africa.

Discovering things about ourselves, about our own boundaries and how we challenged our preconceptions about how far we can push ourselves. Emotional, beautiful, amazing, new friends, new experiences, all culminating in a pleasurable experience.

– Nicola Shepherd, The Explorations Company, UK.

I mean, what the hell, this is awesome!

– Jill Taylor, Jet Set Travel, USA.

You learn more when you're in a group, because people see different things and you get different opinions... It's a fam trip on steroids basically.

– Dean Horvath, Mason Horvath Travel, USA.

I feel like the end of the trip, I mean the fam itself was fantastic, but I feel like the end of the trip, I learned so much information, so many people, and so many beautiful pictures, and the interviews from all the lodge managers, all of that just brought it all together and I feel like I've done six fam trips!

– Ruthie Detwiler, Rothschild Safaris, USA.

Well it's been inspiring for us because we've just realised that we're the ambassadors of the future industry of Africa and protecting it and sharing it with our clients.

– Danica Wilson, Encompass Africa, Australia.

Until next week
