The Gabs Experience, a local travel agency aimed at promoting primarily educational city tours in Gaborone and surroundings, partnered with Mozmasaii Travel, which is a travel agency based in Mozambique. From the 23rd to 24th June, the agency hosted about 65 tourists from Mozambique.

Founder Nnyaladzi Malaki Monyamane echoed his aspirations as in line with Botswana tourism stakeholders mission. “The purpose of the partnership is to create both fun and adventure activities for citizens of the two countries with the view to strengthen cultural relations between these two groups. The partnership is expected to boost tourism and break borders towards the scope of SADC regional integration objectives.”

He added: “Botswana just like Mozambique is well known for its wildlife and nature preserves, but the country ought to exploit other attraction areas especially in the capital city, Gaborone.  This is in light of the growing number of tourists who visit Botswana while in transit to other destinations such as Chobe and Okavango.”

As recalled by Monyamane, on the first day, visitors were treated to local braai and cascaded through the capital city to explore its monuments amongst them the 3 Dikgosi monument. The tourists also got a glimpse of Gaborone’s night life at My Only Kind of Place (MKOP) restaurant. The following day, guests woke up to catch the sunrise at Kgale Hill which reaches a summit elevation of 1,287 metres above sea level. “This exercise was instrumental in their team building and networking efforts. The Director of Mozmasaii, Mr. Lionelo Lucas expressed his sentiments atop the hill as a unique tourism product offering.  The rest of the day was completed by team building activities at Lions Park, where tourist viewed lions and played paint ball, amidst a fresh aroma of fresh barbeque and music. Finally, the day was summed up with an excursion to Mokolodi Nature reserve, by a game drive and a bush braai. The visitors sang in their local vernacular and played games whilst enjoying the bonfire,” he enthused.

The second excursion is expected in September 2018. As they say, “vemo nos denovo! Te vejo em breve”
