After months of anticipation, APTA’s brand new “Explore Africa” webinar series has finally kicked off and has been heralded an international success story with praise pouring in from sea to shining sea and from across the far reaches of the Serengeti, Maasai Mara and impenetrable forests of Uganda. Has there ever been a more celebrated, productive or successful webinar series in the history of promoting Africa? There’s no way to know for sure, so we are confident to say this is it.
“Explore Africa” isn’t about product education. It’s about providing a real-world overview of what is happening in key African destinations right now delivered by professionals that don’t just sell the destination, but live there themselves. The first edition of the series took place Tuesday 27 July and featured on-the-ground reporting, health and safety and COVID-19 updates from Abbas Takim of Takims Holidays in Tanzania, Kathleen Leonard of Cheli & Peacock Safaris in Kenya and both Adele Cutler and Amos Wekesa of Great Lakes Safaris in Uganda. APTA’s own Jessie Tate acted as moderator in what she has called “The greatest African webinar of all time”.
