Welcome Tourism Services became one of the first tour operators to respond to the changes in travel trends by launching their ‘Experience’ brochure in 2015.
“Travellers are moving further away from sitting in tour buses and viewing Africa as they drive by.
They now want to meet the local people, eat the local cuisine and have authentic Southern African experiences.”

Alessandra AllemannWelcome Sales & Marketing Director

“It’s an all in one resource for our agents to make use of when having to cater to the various needs of their clients.
This is to make it easier for them to offer exciting activities in their itineraries.”

Andrea HandOperations Director

This brochure encompasses nine categories of travel such as Adventure, Arts & Culture, Food & Wine and Family friendly experiences.
With over 100 different experiences featured, there is something to offer the varying needs of foreign international travellers.

Here is a sneak peak of some of the Experiential Travel activities Welcome offers:

Taste. Touch. Hear. See. Feel Africa!
