Botswana was recently ranked among the best tourist destinations around the world which is one of the important factors that travelers look at when they are planning a vacation. She is endowed with world class tourism sites such as the Okavango Delta, Tsodilo Hills, Chobe National Park and the Central Kalahari Game Reserve (CKGR) and hotels that have the best hospitality.
Cresta Marakanelo Limited Managing Director Mokwena Morulane has taken the responsibility of taking a regional tour presenting Botswana and Cresta hotels in a bid to drive economic stimuli and activity in the tourism sector whilst carrying the hotel chain brand high.
“Tourism is a vehicle which stimulates all other economic sectors. When we host other nationalities, we showcase our natural endowments, the amazing scenery of our landscapes and the beauty of our people. The tour creates face-to-face relationship with the potential customers and promotes the conversion of visitors into customers. By doing so we are also taking the country and Cresta’s brand message to the world,” said Morulane.
So far, the Managing Director has gone to Durban, Cape Town and Johannesburg, where he has interacted with various entities and individuals where he has been marketing Botswana and the Cresta brand.
“Most of the travelers that visit Botswana from abroad book with the various Cresta Hotels mostly because of the true warmth of African hospitality, which is why I am going around interacting with them and telling about this beautiful true warmth of African hospitality found at Cresta Hotels”.
Cresta Hotels prides itself with 11 hotels and resort areas in the country; including the signature Cresta Mowana Safari Resort & Spa in Kasane; which is perfectly positioned on the banks of the mighty Chobe River. The resort area which receives clients from all over the world has a spectacular river view, with guest rooms tastefully decorated in ethnic style to compliment the natural ambience. The Spa is a haven of relaxation. Game drives, fishing expeditions, and sunset cruises complete the experience.
“Since the year started, I have been traveling around Botswana, Morulane sold me an idea of always booking with Cresta when I am traveling around Botswana, I was undecided first, but I tried it and it worked. I love Botswana and I am still touring the country. What I can confidently share now is the Cresta experience. Having checked in four of them I have noticed that it encompasses a range of different products, without being diluted or compromised. Whether you are looking for a cosmopolitan or truly authentic African experience, you will find it,” said Graig an international travel blogger.
Morulane said he is planning on growing his roadshow regionally and finally take it across the world.
