EDU Africa is a finalist in the Lilizela Tourism Awards
Now in its 3rd year, the Lilizela Tourism Awards celebrates excellence, creativity, and innovation in the South African tourism trade. The awards are designed to recognise and reward the tourism players and companies that work passionately to grow South Africa as a competitive global destination.
EDU Africa was invited to submit an entry to the new Tour Operator category, which was not only open to public voting and comments, but also underwent a strict scoring system from a panel of judges. The competition was narrowed down to a selection of provincial finalists and we were excited to see EDU Africa crack the list.
The Western Cape provincial awards ceremony took place at Moyo Kirstenbosch on Friday, 4 September 2015. The rhythmic beat of djembe drums, feverish chatter of excited tourism players, and aroma of steaming African foods set the tone for an evening of celebration. Minister of Tourism Western Cape, Allan Winde, inspired us all as he placed honour on the growing tourism in the province and talked about the vision of a MTB route from Cape Town to Plett.
All in all, it was a fun night out with fellow Western Cape tourism enthusiasts and we were to be recognised as a finalist in our category!
